Day trip advice please...

Hello all,

We are travelling to Punta Cana for the first time, and were wondering if there is any good things to do THAT ARE NOT BOOKED THROUGH THE RESORT or TOUR OPERATOR..... We love to snorkel, and have no problem taking cabs etc.... We are also open to purchasing discounted excursions from smaller companies. If anyone has suggestions for us it would be greatly appreciated as we have searched for ideas and have not really come up with anything yet. We need a Punta cana expert or someone who as been there before with a good idea.

Thank you in advance for the help. Mucho gracias!

I would highly suggest that you look at the excursions available from This site:


All must be booked in advance - you are picked up and returned to your resort.

The excursions listed here are not available from your resort or your tour operator.

If you scroll to the bottom of the page after it loads, there are direct links to the various excursions that the outfitter, Mike Fisher, offers.

He operates a very credible and well operated company in Punta Cana and is used very regular by many members on this forum.

I am sure you will find an excursion that will be of interest to you and your family.

Another excellent excursion that can only be booked through the following site:


This is an excellent excursion that will give you personal exposure to the landscape of the Dominican Republic and the true life style of the beautiful Dominican people.

I hope that this is of help to you.

I have gone fishing with MikeF and have also done the boca de Yuma tour with PCMike and I can vouch for them both. Great guys, great tours, just pick your poison. I found out that I am more a land lubber and hence my affinity toward PCMike's tour. It was a wonderful day filled with all sorts of magic.
