We will be travelling for the first time to Republic Dominican in March 2015. It will also be the first time we will not be travelling to an Adult Only, AI resorts.
Let me give you a bit of context. We decided we would retire to the Caribbean and we are exploring different island living. We love Jamaica and Mexico but not sure if this would be a place we would like to retire so, DR is our first as a non AI on our list.
We have rented a Villa on a gated community (may want to purchase something similar, less kids) for a week and a Beach condo on Bavaro beach for two weeks so form March 7 to March 28 in Punta Cana. Here is where I am getting a bit concerned, food supply.
1- Where should we purchase food safely? Should there be places to avoid?
2- What are the most see around Punta Cana?
3- I have read in a forum that there was some expat that would take you on a tour ($$). Would you recommend doing that? If so, anyone in mind?
Thanks all in advance
