A friend of mine stayed in the Ziva under my account, room service went through wife's purse, and has it all on camera from his baby's monitor. Be careful out there...

We flew into Santo Domingo and they were randomly pulling over most people to screen their luggage (don't know the official rules though)
Cap Cana is a gated community so I'm not sure they would let Uber drivers in.
If you are staying in Cap Cana, we found this beach belonging to some condominium that was beautiful and absolutely deserted. We went on 2 days and literally had no one in sight. The staff didn't care as long as we didn't use the pools:

When I flew into PUJ someone came over and asked to help me me and told me VIP service
when it cam time to screen luggage he told them VIP and they didn't look inside my luggage for food BH
I tipped the guy $5
