I have been reading the forums on different subjects with regards to the Grand Paradise Samana and have come to the conclusion to go with an open mind and remember what we paid for the trip! My Wife and I are there for two weeks from Feb 23. Is it better to book excursions from the resort or from providers in Las Galeras? I have been told before that off resort providers are not insured and that's why they are cheaper. Has anyone boooked excursions off the resort? If so, what was your experience, what would you recommend and who did you book with?
