The roads in the Dominican Republic are known to be a backdrop for trouble. There are drive-by robberies and taxi scams, in which the driver winds up charging tourists much more than the local rate. Setting criminal behavior aside, the D.R.'s city streets can be packed with motorcycles and cars, rattling even the most experienced drivers.
Rather than perusing the national murder rate, most people choose their vacation destination by considering factors like attractions and amenities. However, it's worth noting that between 2012 and 2017, the murder rate in the Dominican Republic decreased from 22.1 per 100,000 to 14.9. That being said, the D.R. made headlines in 2019 for the deaths of 11 American tourists. Autopsy reports found that all deaths were due to natural causes, but many still questioned whether they were linked or related to tainted alcohol. Three of the Americans died at the Grand Bahia Principe La Romana and two died at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana. And in January 2019, a woman was brutally attacked at the Majestic Elegance Punta Cana.
