What people are saying about Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Pick up at the hotel was on time and smooth! Super nice and cheerful driver. We booked the tour and had the catamaran all to ourselves (2 people). The crew on board was very nice and took great care of us! We saw a lot of fish while snorkeling and the snorkeling equipment was perfect! At the stop at the "natural pool" we were able to enjoy a drink or two with music in the shallow water. we would book the tour again at any time! Absolute recommendation!

Very good experience, we discovered a lot of things about Dominican culture and the city of Higuey: Cigar making, cocoa, coffee, visit of a typical Dominican house, visit around a cathedral in the city of Higuey and visit of the Higuey market. It was a very comprehensive tour with our guides Gabriel and Junior.

Great experience, you’re in good hands with your guide. We had Danny boy and he was a great time! Buffet lunch was delicious, and transportation was reliable and timely. Would definitely do again!

Unfortunately the trip had to be cancelled due to weather however the operators were very easy to work with and very communicative keeping us updated on the current situation.

Cool experience, definitely worth the money and time. I do wish we could stay at the "swimming pool" longer. That spot is amazingly stunning. Buffet was ok. 9/10!
