Hi, thinking of a first trip to Punta Cana. Have never stayed in an AI but I guess that is the way to go in the Dominican. Looking for (1) gorgeous beach (2) good food and variety of dining options (3) smaller resort feel (not a high rise), (4) adults only preferred but not a must. When visiting Punta Cana do you stay put at your resort or venture to other resorts? Is it safe to walk along the beach. Are there stores for getting groceries/beverages/liquor if you wish? We are a couple mid fifties that have been to Turks and Caicos for the last 4 years, looking to change it up, and trying to save some money while we are at it. Thanks everyone.
