What are the best things to do in Punta Cana?

Hi, everybody! I'm going to Punta Cana on 17 of July, and I will be staying at Iberostar Grand Bavaro, with my boyfriend, for a week. We would love to see something outside the resort. What are mos beautiful things to do and what are the prices? This is our first time there and we want to make the most of our trip. I want it to be perfect :)

Thanks in advance

ajla09,

I would highly recommend a tour through Punta Cana Mikes Dominican Adventures.

A very credible tour - with memories that you will retain for a lifetime. You will learn and experience the local culture and the countryside. The tours are very specialized and tend to cater to small groups from 2-9 persons.

Here is the link to the site where I am sure all your questions will be answered and you can communicate with the owner - Mike, directly.

You may find like we did that the Grand is so relaxing going elsewhere is a pain. I agree with Mikes though as it's the only excursion we did in 2 weeks. Never even played golf as so nice just to plant my my a$$ and do nothing. Oh the Star Friends are really nice as far as getting you up to do things and remember it's a job for them and try to play.

Enjoy

Santo Domingo and Saona Islands are a "must do/go" IMO.

Husband and I are in our 50's and we actually took surfing lessons from Macao Surf Camp (found this on TA) We weren't that great, but the people were awesome and where/when else would we get the opportunity? Think it was about $40pp and they picked us up at the Excellence which is the furthest hotel out. We also did an offroad tour which stopped by some caves and we drove 2 person buggies. That was a blast going through the mud puddles, prepare to get dirty and rinse off in the cave pool.

HI! Did you take one of the day tours to Santa Domingo? I am anxious to see it but can't do over night. Thanks
