The ideal hotel would have a large stage with lighting, good service, all inclusive a most, and a great value. Not looking or needing fancy, value is more important.

      We are leaving for Punta Cana in 2 days. My husband seems to think we need to leave the resort, and even more crazy he thinks we needs to flag down the guys on scooters to take us?? What are your thoughts on this, I personally dont think this sounds like a good idea. We are staying at the Catalonia Resort, and want to go up to the shopping complex by Melia Caribe. Any thoughts?? We would be with another couple as well, so four people.

    • Where to order online Flowers?

      Punta Cana Mar 31, 2014 at 7:02 AM

      Hi.

      I have "google it" a lot searching for Florist in Punta Cana but it seems that none have a website. I only found one (http://www.sisayonline.com/). All the other doesn't have a website or they have lost the domain.
      From what I read in some forums, it seems that the Hotel's can provide flowers but they are too expensive. I also try some international florist with international shipping but they are also very expensive.

      Can someone help me? I would really want to send some flowers to my wife who will be working in Punta Cana for this week.

      Thanks.

    • A week in SD

      by Corbama Online Now May 27, 2013 at 8:24 PM

      I am going alone in June to SD just to practice Spanish and meet some people. I want to lie on the beach but don't want to travel far from the city. I am thinking of staying at Buca Chica for 3 days and then to Zona Colonal for another 3 nights. Does that sound good? Any idea of good reasonable hotels ($80 max) that you recommend? I will arrive 11:30 pm, what's the best and cheapest way to make it to the hotel? I heard that it costs less thatn $5 for taxi from one side of town to the other. Why is it more expensive from the airport to the city? IS it safe to meet people on the street and make friends or there is a lot of scam people trying to get into your pocket?
      Also, if I book in all inclusive hotel, does that mean three meal and drinks (Dominican food)?
      Thanks for the help in advance.

      Dominica Republic, Hotel by the BEACH

      by tesoro77 Online Now Aug 15, 2012 at 9:52 AM

      Greetings:
      I hope you can help me. I booked Renaissance Santo Domingo Jaragua Hotel&Casino (Marriot.) It is WATERFRONT, but I doubt it is a SWIMABLE beach. I was in Julio Melia area years ago (and now it became so expensive that I had to opt for something else.) I remember that most beaches in the CITY AREA are not swimable.
      Could anybody clarify that for me? I saw it on the map and photos, and it is WATER front, but I wonder what KIND of water. I love the Caribbean and being there without a beach seems crazy.
      Could we get to a decent beach from this hotel? Taxi, guagua (bus)? how much if taxi?? Thank you much.

      Suggestions for place to go outside Santo Domingo

      by Ryan_NYC Online Now Jan 29, 2012 at 8:44 PM

      Hello,

      We are heading to Santo Domingo on 2/20/2012 and will be staying in the city for two nights (2/20 and 2/21). We will be checking in to a resort in Punta Cana on 2/23 so we'll have 2/22 free to travel close by to Santo Domingo. Does anyone have any recommendation as to where to go? We are debating whether we should stay outside Santo Domingo on the night of 2/22 and come back next morning to take the bus to Punta Cana, or stay the third night in the city and take day trip to nearby areas. We would prefer not to go to Boca Chica or Juan Dolio since we will be spending 5 days at the beach in Punta Cana. Many thanks.

      Hi guys my name is Gisela and Im a 22 yr old college student who just moved to old boring Knoxville Tn. I have been dying to go to RD since like forever lol. And finally I'm getting the guts to actually do it in May. The only thing is that I'm probably going by myself since my friends are pretty much broke.

      I was planning on going to Santo Domingo. My only thing is that I'm kinda worried that it might not be as safe there as I imagined before after looking at news on youtube of the crime there and it's pretty scary ,

      I am looking at some apartments on Malecon (Ocean Blvd.),
      Miramar Sector. Is that a safe neighborhood? I mean any advice is good advice jaja. I want to stay there for 1-2 weeks perhaps so I was thinking of renting a car but tell me if it's a good idea?. Im a native spanish speaker so I'm not afraid of wondering around the city I just want advice on what's the best way to do it.

      But please ! help me
