Read the novel: The Feast of the Goat by Mario Vargas Llosa.
Great book and as one that lived 2 years in the Dominican Republic (30 years ago -so I can't really help in useful information) I found this book great as a background for that country.

I read something about cave(rn) diving in a dutch magazine. Does anybody know a site with more information about that?

ISLA CATALINA HAVE A VERY COLORFUL WALL DIVE , VERY GOOD FOR WIDE ANGLE .
SAINT GEORGE IS QUITE A BIG WRECK AND I LIKED FOR B&W AMBIENT LIGHT .
BOTH PLACES ARE ABOUT 1 HOUR DRIVE FROM PUNTA CANA UP TO LA ROMANA , WHERE YOU TAKE THE BOAT.
DIVING AT PUNTA CANA IS SO SO , BUT IS A GOOD PLACE FOR CAVE DIVING . I SUGGEST THAT YOU CONTACT DENIS @ GOLDEN ARROW ( www.cavediving.com.do ) . ALSO IF YOU CAN OBTAIN THE LAST ISSUE OF FATHOMS MAGAZINE , YOU WILL FIND AN ARTICLE ABOUT CAVE DIVING AT DR.
YOU WILL HAVE BEAUTIFUL BEACHES JUST IN FRONT OF YOUR HOTEL BUT BESIDES THAT IS NOT A LOT TO DO THERE . ABOUT 30 MINUTES WEST FROM LA ROMANA IS A DRY CAVE ( CUEVA DE LAS MARAVILLAS ) WITH A LOT OF PICTOGRAPHY FROM THE INDIANS , VERY INTERESTING AND EASY .
I LIVE AT DR SO IF YOU NEED MORE INFO , LET ME KNOW
