We're looking at booking Dreams for late-April, 2014, we visited Bayahibe and Sanoa Island/Natural Pool on a Carnival cruise (Seavis was excellent) and we want to return to spend more time in the area. We didn't get a chance to see any of the Bayahibe area other than the beach we departed from, and of course we never made it to Dominicus.
I gather from earlier research there are some small shops as well as restaurants and bars to enjoy in both Bayahibe and Dominicus, is that right? I've read there is also some entertainment (music and dancing) in the evening in Bayahibe?
Is the shopping in Dominicus different/better than Bayahibe? That is, are there more of the US stores there and not just local souvenir shops?
We plan to take the full day Seavis excursion while there that also hits Catalina Island (I think), any yeas or nays on that? Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Looks like we'll have to fly into PUJ and pay almost $200 for RT transfers but still looking at that.
Thank you in advance, looking forward to spending a couple weeks there!
