          My apologies as I am sure this has been asked before but I did not see an easy way to search the forums. I assume we should plan to tip bartenders and housekeeping. Is this accurate? Should we plan for Dominican Currency, or is US currency preferred?

          Should I be careful drinking the water? I am not planning on drinking out of the tap, but should I be careful getting shower water in my mouth?

          Sure, better safe than sorry. Don't drink the tap water and use bottled water to brush your teeth. The ice and water at the restaurants is fine.
