What people are saying about Punta Cana
The guide, Benjamin, and the rest of the team were stellar!!! Everyone was so nice and friendly! The food was enjoyable as well! Our photographer, Leandro did amazing. He is an excellent coach for taking perfect pictures (poses, made sure to tell me about a tag sticking out, out of place hair, etc). The speedboat ride was a bit rough on the back but I appreciated the smaller boat with less passengers. Also it was a nice boat, unlike some other small ones I saw. We had about 10 in my group but I saw many other boats full of people. The beach speaks for itself. The team did an excellent job getting us dancing and having fun on the catamaran back. I enjoyed every minute of this experience.
Highly recommended!!! Remember to bring your own bandana/head scarf and sunglasses. They can be little pricey at the gift shop. I also recommend purchasing the pictures. I paid $40 (plus a $5 tip) for about 40 pictures!!! The memories are priceless!
Saona Island was beautiful! The Buggy experience was fun however it should have been communicated to leave things in the locker rooms behind to have dry clothes upon our return. The bags we carried were completely soaked in mud! :-P
The trip was realy amazing! Large, clean boat, cold drinks and great crew. Snorkeling point was full of fish and natural pool full of fun with our guide Ivan who knows how to do great party on the boat. Best trip we did in Dom Rep!
The driver was waiting in the front of the airport with my name on a sign. Minivan was clean and air conditioned. Comfortable, fast and realy relaxing tramsport to our hotel.
