Is there a particular company I can hire an economical driver to show me around?
My friends and I are looking to book a trip to Puerto Plata early next April. There will be 5 adults (early 30's), 2 couples and 1 single. Initially we were planning to book Cofresi Palm Beach through CheapCaribbean. But now we have the option of going through my grandma's timeshare company at Blue Bay, for 1 extra night and a slightly lower cost. We can choose between "Silver Deluxe" or "no concierge." If we went with this resort, what more is available with the Silver Deluxe, and would we really need it (a concierge)? We are having a difficult time deciding which is better for us. We would prefer less dining at buffets (seems like this point is for Cofresi, but I don't know about availability to reserve), pools (what are pool hours?), beaches, and plentiful drinks (variety and included alcohol) and activities (included as well as paid for). We do not necessarily plan to go off resort, although we are not opposed to it, and may rent a car to do some self-guided sightseeing. Which resort is nicer and has more options for people in their early 30's?
can we purchase these before we go or only in puerto plata? and the luggage fee, is that for carry on luggage as well as checked luggage?
i have seen on here stuff to do anyone have a favorite?
Also any clue how much a taxi is from POP airport to Cofresi Beach?
the hotel shuttle is 55 one way just wanted to compare
We just booked a trip staying in the Life Style Crown Residence Suites, can anyone give advice on how to get from the airport- cost ect. and what might be close and a good experience close to the resort... THANKS ;)
I will be staying at the Iberostar Costa Dorado in May. I was wondering how to get transit without going through the resort. Usually resorts have higher taxi prices.
Is there a bus stop or scooter pick up near the resort gate?
Any reliable drivers or guides I could hire? Looking to visit Sosua, Isabel de Torres and Porta Plata Malecon.
How far to Santiago de los Caballeros? What would be typical taxi fare? Any buses from Costa Dorado?

I am travelling to Dominican Republic next week and will be staying in an All Inclusive hotel for two weeks, but I don't plan on taking too many clothes, and will basically be chilling within the hotel only (just need to rest and recuperate) but should I have spare baggage allowance, would love to bring some nice things for some local children... I have read that DR has some very poor areas, and whilst I don't have much spare cash, if coloring books / pencils / notebooks etc would help a local school, I'd be happy to oblige.
Am I just being daft, or do you think this might make a difference to someone?! I got the idea from an advert for a website called "www.packforapurpose.org" but my hotel is not one of the 4 listed in DR on this website.
What do you think?!
I'm reading a lot of conflicting reports on the distance (in time and mileage) between Santiago and Puerto Plata. We will need to make the journey a number of times on our trip and I'm trying to determine just how long it will take to take a bus between the two communities. Can anyone help me?

We'll be in a resort around Puerto Plata next week and since my wife is pregnant and has had a history of pregnancy problems, we wanted to be ready to fly back to the US if an emergency arises. So I've been trying to figure out what flights back to the US are available.
Vamos a estar en un hotel de Puerto Plata la semana que viene, y ya que mi esposa esta embarazada y ha tenido problemas con embarazos en el pasado, queriamos estar preparados si alguna emergencia pasa. Asi que estaba tratando de averiguar que vuelos van desde Puerto Plata a los Estados Unidos.
So far these are the only 3 daily flights that I've been able to research / Estos son los 3 vuelos diarios que he encontrado:
Continental, 1:10pm, New York, 4 hrs
Jetblue, 2:50pm, New York, 4 hrs
American Airlines, 4:30pm, Miami, 2hrs
Do you know if there's other flights from POP to anywhere in the US, or is there another big nearby airport? Saben si hay algun otro vuelo ademas de esos desde el aeropuerto POP hacia los Estados Unidos, o hay alguno otro aeropuerto internacional cerca?
Senores: Estare en la RD 7/26. Me gustaria ir a ver la pelea contra Miguel Cotto vs. Antonio Margarito en HBO PPV. Sabras donde lo tendran ensenando? Gracias. MAC

I am going to puerto plata in the summer. I've been there before but stayed with family in the city. Right now I am looking at Villa Taina or Hotel Kaoba and wanted to know if anyone had information or as to how they would rate these two hotels? or if they knew of a better place to stay in that area?
Could someone provide some nice hotel,activities and sights in this area.
