My girlfriend and I are going to Punta Cana from 04/19 to 04/25. It's my 3rd All Inclusive Caribbean vacation and I wonder how it stacks up to Cancun and Aruba. We are staying at the Majestic Elegance and have the Elegant Club package, because we definitely wanted an adult only area. I have a few questions and would love all opinions from people that have experience on the island.
First, what are some of the best excursions to get out and explore the island? We like to zipline, explore, and see things that we can't see on other islands.
Second, I saw that Spring Break ends around the time we are leaving, the weekend of April 25. Any experience with Spring Breakers and it being too much drunk partying? We like to drink and have a good time, and we were college aged too, but not really looking forward to a rowdy party week on our vacation. It's why we picked so late to go, hoping to get there after the partying has ended.
Third, I've been reading other posts on Tripadvisor and there are a lot of bad reviews of leaving the resort, Punta Cana not being as good as other Caribbean islands, rough beaches, and not much to do if you go off the resort. I would love to hear about other experiences from people that have gone to the island and compare to other all inclusive resort islands in the Caribbean.
