♦️Please share your #1 tip about Punta Cana

My tip: when you are at a resort and have a question, ask a fellow tourist.

Why? Well...

1) The fellow tourist will likely understand English better.

2) There is a good chance the fellow tourist is a repeat visitor with resort experience so you have a good chance of getting a accurate answer to your question.

3) If you hit it off, you just made a new friend.

Now its your turn. What is your #1 tip?

If you do not get what you ask for keep asking until you get it. I know it is a pain to do on vacation but it is better than going home and complaining.

Treat all people (including hotel staff) how you would expect/want them to treat you :)

You are on vacation so take a deep breath and relax. Not everything happens as fast as you would see in your home country but there is no rush, you are on vacation. Don't sweat the small stuff.

Take a great big smile with you. Smile and people will almost always smile back. And please don't forget please and thank you. The staff are just that staff not servants. So treat them with the respect they definitely deserve. 😎
