Last minute trip - many questions

I apologize in advance for having so many questions and not having done any homework yet

We have a few (kid-free!) days over spring break (March 25/26 - March 30) to escape SOMEWHERE! We were originally thinking Playa del Carmen but flights (from DC) were astronomical and not at convenient times. Found some pretty good deals to punta cana but I don't know much about the area. I don't want to be trapped at the resort - is it an area that is safe to walk around, with shops, other restaurants etc?

Is AI or non-AI better? Is there any good snorkeling in the area?

thanks so much!

Not a lot of snorkeling , cat royal has some off the beach, I understand it's kind of isolated though. The grand palladium properties are next to the village of el Corectio on the beach side and if you exit the resort at the main gate you can walk to the bavaro plaza and the punta Cana plaza ( I believe that is what is called)

If you're going during Spring Break... Check the reviews from same time last year of any hotel you're thinking of..

Punta Cana is quickly becoming a Spring Break venue.. It would be a shame if you went hoping for a "Kids-free" break only to find the hotel you picked overun with a load of Juvenile Delinquents..

By checking the reviews you should be able to see if the hotel had any Spring Breakers for the dates you're going..
