      Good day everyone. We are coming from a cruise ship and shore excursion from La Romana are fully booked so I was looking if there's any tour companies you can recommend? Our ship is docked from 9a-4p so time is limited. I've read of casa de campo and altos de chavon. Is altos de chavon in casa de campo? Do you recommend it for sightseeing? How much are the taxi fare? One way? Or round trip? Would love to do the river cruise but Carnival is sold out and wondering if we'll still able to do it with other tours. Thanks for any info.

      we are traveling by cruise ship and don't want to pay the expensive shore excursion prices. Once we arrive at the pier is there anything that you would recommend doing? beach, snorkel, etc that can be purchased once there? or do we have to purchase the excursion through Carnival?

      Going to Punta Cana Nov 10 for 7 nights at LTI. Scuba Diver wanting to dice at Ilsa Catalina. Is there a public bus to La Romaina and is that the town they leave from for the scuba trip? I was told a company called scubs Caribe will take you to Catalina but don't know how to get to their location from Punta Cana. Don't want to spend alot on the trip since not going for senic- just to get to the island.
