Do Free Dominican Dating Sites Actually Work?
Do free Dominican dating sites actually work? Well, that depends on who you ask.
If you’re coming down to the Dominican Republic, then online dating should definitely be in your bag of tricks. Unlike a lot of places in the United States, you’ll find a lot more than just bottom tier girls on Tinder.
You can for sure find a lot of SEXY Dominican chicks via online dating. There’s many reasons for this.
One is many women don’t have much to do here except talk to guys online.
Another is that the D.R. is a relatively poor country.
For most women, this is their best chance at meeting the perfect gringo and escaping the barrio – at least in their minds.
Am I saying rely only on online dating during your time in the D.R? Absolutely not.
Like anywhere else, online dating should only be used to supplement your real-life game. All the guides on this website are pure-gold; use them and reap in the rewards.
So, do free Dominican dating sites actually work? Well in this detailed guide, we’re going to compare and contrast different online dating sites that you can use during your conquest. After that, you can just go ahead and see for yourself.

Do Free Dominican Dating Sites Actually Work?
Instead of talking about this generally, we’re going to take a look at the specific sites and what type of women you’ll meet on them.
This will help you decide which sites are the best to use for your personal needs.
Here’s some of the most popular free Dominican dating sites:
We’re going to set things off with a little write up on Badoo.
Now I’m not going to lie to you, but Badoo is my least favorite application to use. Is it terrible? No, that’s not what I’m saying at all. There are much better alternatives.
Badoo is similar to a lot of other dating apps in regards to how it works. You add photos, a bio, then you chat people up. You can also buy “super-powers”, which is essentially just the premium version of Badoo, but you don’t really need those.
One advantage it has over an app like Tinder is that you don’t need to match with people to talk to them. Just click on their profile and send them a message, simple as that.
Another good feature I like is that people can rate the photos you use. This also comes in handy for using other dating apps as well. But…
Reason number one on why I’m not a huge fan:
The quality on here is pretty lackluster if I do say so myself.
You won’t find many tourists on Badoo that’s for certain. As far as Dominicanas, don’t expect anything better than a “6” on a good day. Most of the girls on here are just barrio Dominican girls.
Reason number two:
It’s practically useless unless you’re on a small beach town, as most of the attractive women are just using other apps.
If you do find yourself in one of these small beach towns, then give it a shot. But you’re better suited just going to the beach instead, gaming all the girls in real life. In my very humble opinion anyway.
As for the final verdict, Badoo gets a 4/10 in my eyes, coming in just below average.
On to the next….
I’m sure everyone reading this is familiar with Tinder. Tinder is the most popular dating app in the entire world, and that isn’t an exception in the Dominican Republic.
Maybe you’re reading this and have never used a dating app before. That’s okay, no one is judging. That also means you probably don’t know how Tinder works.
All you need to know is to either swipe left or swipe right. Once you get the hang of it you will start getting matches and be able to start messaging girls. Muy facil.
In the Dominican Republic, I only like to use Tinder in tourist-heavy areas or Santo Domingo. In small cities with low speaking English populations, there are much better alternatives.
Tinder doesn’t work well in Santiago or San Fransisco.
You’ll mainly find more affluent, gold-digging, gringo hunter types on Tinder. Now in my opinion, this isn’t a bad thing at all, especially if you can’t really speak Spanish.
You will have tons of competition, however.
Thirsty gringos LOVE using Tinder and will be flooding girls messages all day. So, if you do decide to go with Tinder, make sure that you stand out somehow.
As long as your game is decent, you shouldn’t have too difficult a time in a place like Santo Domingo or Punta Cana. These are the two places where I would focus my Tinder attention anyway.
In small beach towns, the only women that will be using Tinder are prostitutes and backpacking tourists. Language/cultural barriers have a lot to do with this I would assume.
My overall verdict on Tinder would be a 7/10.
A solid option in places like Santo Domingo and Punta Cana as stated before, but pretty useless anywhere else.
Now, these aren’t the only dating apps and sites to use in the Dominican Republic. In fact, you can also use paid dating sites in the country too.
While this may seem weird, it’s actually incredibly effective in the DR.
Here’s why – along with my favorite site in the country:
Dominican Cupid is easily the best dating app to use in the Dominican Republic, and I know countless people who can vouch for that. As far as the Dominican Republic goes, Dominican Cupid is the most popular Dominican dating site.
Although it’s technically not free.
The site pretty much works exactly the same as Badoo. You create a profile, add a bio, a photo and send/receive messages to girls. The downside is you can’t talk to girls unless you get the gold membership. It’s not really that expensive though and is well worth it.
It’s really easy to pipeline with Dominican Cupid more-so then Tinder. Just make your account a month before you leave and start messaging up girls. This gives you a chance to practice your Spanish and have a whole bunch of dates lined up before you even touch down.
The quality, of course, will be top notch, as one could expect. Literally everyone and their mom is using Dominican Cupid. It definitely has some gringo hunters for sure, but you’ll notice of a lot more regular, more lower-class girls on here as well.
There isn’t going to be as much competition on here like there will be on other apps. A lot of gringos probably aren’t even aware that Dominican Cupid even exists. That or they just refuse to pay the fee because “principles” and stuff like that. But that’s their loss.
If I were you, I’d just try and go after the alternatives and find the girls that just want sex and not money. That shouldn’t be too hard on Dominican Cupid. On Tinder, it’ll for sure be way more of a challenge.
Another important thing about Dominican Cupid, is you need to make sure your Spanish is at least conversational. A lot of the girls that use this app don’t really come from affluent backgrounds, so they’re more or less lacking a bit in the education department.
This holds especially true in places like Santiago, or some small beach city that sits on the coast. If you want to get laid in these places, you NEED to know Spanish. If you don’t then good luck, because these girls probably won’t even give you the time of day.
You should see this as an opportunity, as doing an “intercambio” with a Dominicana might be the easiest opener there is. On top of that, you get to learn Spanish as well, which is used for more than just gaming women.
Free Dominican Dating Sites | Our Verdict
So, do free Dominican dating sites actually work?
Well, the answer to that question is…
Outside of Tinder in Santo Domingo and Punta Cana, the free dating sites in the Dominican Republic won’t be too useful.
In order to have success with online dating in the Dominican Republic, Dominican Cupid is essential.
Yes, you need to pay for the membership.
But it’s well worth it.
Dominican Cupid is the easiest way to meet Dominican girls while traveling around the country.
The only downside is you have to pay.
Which isn’t a big deal, as the site is around $20-30 USD a month – depending on which membership you get.
Oh and one more thing…
I can’t restate this enough, but seriously, LEARN SPANISH. Eso es muy importante pendejo.
If you already know a bit of Spanish but can’t really flirt all that well, I recommend checking out the Pickup Spanish course. Before you know it, all the girls down in the D.R. will start treating you like the gringo Romeo Santos.
Yes, they also love Bachata here, that’s another easy in with the mujeres, if I do say so myself.
Your adventure awaits, so what are you waiting for?
That’s all for today, fellas.
