BEST DOMINICAN REPUBLIC SIM CARD FOR TOURIST COMPARED AND BEST PREPAID SIM CARD IN DOMINICAN REPUBLIC BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about internet and data connection in Dominican Republic is great especially in the cities. There are a few places off the beaten path like mountains, beaches and forest where the connection will be weak.

Obviously the best thing you can do to connect online is buying a prepaid sim card in Dominican Republic. It will be efficient and it will allow you to connect anytime. We recommend you to get outside the airport when getting to the city in an official phone shop.

There are 3 main phone operators in Dominican Republic: Claro, Altice Dominicana and Viva. Also Wind Telecom but it’s only available in the Santo Domingo metro area. 

Sometimes is hard to connect your laptop to the VPN and you have to be patient. If you go for a week you will find VPN with free trials. We used Atlas VPN, ExpressVPN, NordVPN, Surfshark and Proton VPN. When connecting the VPN to your device will make it slower than usual.
