It’s said that the biggest fear one has it that of public peaking. For me, my biggest fear is not having cellular service, and not being able to connect while on the go.

So, how does one connect while in Dominican Republic

Some quick tips to staying connected while on the go:
By Phone The Dominican Republic is part of the North American Numbering Plan Area (NANPA) and shares the Country Code of +1 with all the NANPA territories. Area codes used are 809, 829, and 849. Local phone numbers are basically the same format as in the United States and Canada with a 3 digit area code and 7 digit subscriber number. . If you’re planing to use a GSM cell phone here, Viva, Claro and Orange are the only known companies that have GSM plans and SIM cards. It’s unknown about Tricom and Wind if they offer GSM. However, Orange and Tricom also have 4G LTE.
