Electricity

The current is 110-120 volts/60 cycles just as in North America. Electrical blackouts occur less frequently than in the past, and tend to last only one to two minutes (when they're over, everyone claps), but most hotels and restaurants have generators. It's a good idea to be considerate to your hotel hosts, especially those running small ones, and turn off lights, TVs, etc. when they're not needed. The Dominican Republic has one of the highest electricity rates in the world.
