If you had to pick just one to go for 10 days in March, which would you pick for someone who wants a fun, cheap trip to a gorgeous place for adventurous people? Any input is greatly appreciated!

Hi
I think you will have fun wherever you choose as I travelled through both countries on my travels this year.
If I had a choice I would go back to Domincan Republic as it was really adventures and exciting.
I stayed in Santo Domingo the Capital(d-en-suite room;$15) which was interesting and great nightlife and then jumped a bus to Boca Chica(yankee badboy town);only joking!
It got that name as lots of Yanks retire their although I did'nt see many/any!!!!!!!!.
Boca Chica(d-en-suite room $17) had everything from great beaches to great nightlife so book up and hit de road Mon!!
Have a great fun trip for your 10days and enjoy your travels.
al de bes

Dominican Republic! Less than half the price of Costa Rica on a budget.
