What's close to the Iberostar Grand?

Can someone tell me if anything is within walking distance of this property? Shopping, sites.. any close by excursions?

Is it a place where we an run? Is the resorts/resorts big enough to do so?

Thank you!

We found that walking from ME, on the beach, we were good until we hit Riu, then we got tuckered. You can find some shopping within walking distance but others will have additional suggestions.


For excursions, there is transportation. You will be picked up and dropped off. Remember some tours are only booked online and in advance, do not wait until you get to the hotel. They also book up fast.








Also rated high among TA posters, and seems like fun.

Hiya Cruisin....

Yes there is beach vendor shopping, face the ocean, turn right and you will come to about 30 vendor shacks (Shacks 5th Avenue LOL) it's just a few minutes walk, right next to the Iberostar Grand.

As for excursions, there are many that you can book in the lobby or at the onsite Dive Center. Listed above by Taprice are also great options that are not bookable in the lobby or the Dive Center.

I suppose you can run around this resort, or you could run the length of the road that leads to the Iberostars... it's quite long and scenic, you'll also be running by the golf course.

I hope this helps,

Cheers, Debbie

Walk down to the Riu properties, between Riu Bavaro and Riu Macao is Caribbean street.
