BBGE Cancelled trip 5/21-5/28th- Going to DR

My husband and I decided it was wise to cancel out trip to Mexico. We were able to cancel the resort with no fee and change our airline tickets. We ended up booking at the Catalonia Royal Bavaro in Punta Cana. The beaches look awsome there!!

Careful in DR... I hear that "Panda Botulism" has a very high infection rate in the DR.

Just kidding. IT's a shame that you won't be going to PDC and BBGE, but it sounds like you found a good alternate place to go.

If only the media didn't go so nutso and insane on the reporting and doing their best to scare the daylights out of everyone, many wouldn't have cancelled their plans.

I've been to Punta Cana. It's nice, but not PDC. I felt like the people in PDC loved us much more than in Punta Cana. Too bad you cancelled. I hope you have a really good time and am glad you were able to change without losing your money.

I do think it's a shame that people are cancelling so quickly. We leave same date as you and have no intention of cancelling.

I have been to DR a few times and always enjoyed every part. I am really going to miss PDC this trip. I love going there every May.

I have to make the most of my changes and I am sure it will be awsome!!!

Did you book w/a travel agent or on your own? We are going to BBGE on 5/23 - 99% we are not cancelling but just wondering?

I am a non professional travel agent. I spend hours making sure I get the best value and the 1st class vacation for less. Trust me, I do get the best prices!!! I have friends following with us.

Ah Kristen, that's such a shame to hear. We don't know what we are doing yet. Our travel agent won't give us a refund, we are hoping they'll do it next week so we can rebook for either Dominican Republic or Maldives. Louise
