Amanda Que GolazO !: When exactly is Semana Santa in the Dominican Republic?
I know it’s sometime in April, but exactly when? And how long does it last?
My dad and I made a bet, that if I can buy my own plane ticket, he’ll go to DR with me for the very first time. It’s been my ULTIMATE wish to go with him. So i’m planning to save from here on till April. And I chose Semana Santa because I’ve never been during that time, and I heard it’s SUPER SUPER fun.
