    You'd think tourists would be on to this by now.

    Problem is that the whole Caribbean has become toxic.

    perfect place for the next democrat debate....just think. beautiful setting, many potential illegals, mini bars.
    Sarah Sanders doesn't often mop the White House Press Corp Floor...but when she does, she uses Jim Acosta.

    There is no American free press. They're bought and paid for.

    There are gorgeous places not that far away from the DR that need to get onto this and start stealing tourism...like Paul Hogan did with his "Put another shrimp on the barbie" ads. Roatan's a good bet!

    Was in Roatan 2 weeks ago. My experience was that it is poor and dirty. There's trash along the roads everywhere.

    “Stick with Beer”: Why Counterfeit Booze Might Be Killing People in the Dominican Republic

    Of the 10 Americans who have mysteriously died during their trips to the Dominican Republic in the last year, nine showed symptoms commonly associated with methanol poisoning.

    Now, both Dominican authorities and the FBI are looking into a counterfeit alcohol as the possible culprit, officials confirmed to VICE News.

    The nine victims died from either pulmonary edema, the medical term for fluid in the lungs, or of a heart attack. At least four of them had drunk an alcoholic beverage at resorts in Punta Cana, Santo Domingo and La Romana shortly before their deaths, according to loved ones.

    In addition to the recent deaths, a number of other tourists, including 47 of the 114 Jimmy Buffet fans visiting the Caribbean island for a group trip, said they became sick during their stay at a resort on the island.
    I'm not in the medical field, but contaminated fake liquor being poured into reused/counterfeit bottles was one possibility that occurred to me weeks ago. Methanol poisoning was a chronic issue back in the bootleg liquor days.

    If you get drunk you'll wake up with a hangover.
