am going january to dom republic and wondered does anyone know if from the uk we can use things like hair straightners without having to buy convertors as they are really expensive and are huge. Also does anyone know how bad mosquitos are in january as mossies love me. Although I always take lotions and sprays but wondered how bad they might be. We go to mexico every year and it can be bad but that is october. Any advice would be great we are going to bayihibe side and dont no much at all about dom republic.
