Punta Cana, Dominican Republic expert cruise advice
Often pegged as a destination for nature buffs and adventure seekers, Dominica remains the lush isle the colonial powers lusted after centuries ago.

I read many negative reviews about Punta Cana before going. Many said don’t get off. Tendering in was an awful process. I’ve been to 18 Caribbean islands and Punta Cana was one of my favorites 😍 water was a little rough so they could only take half the people at a time and they also said they had to go slower. Was not long or bad at all. We were in a gated community when we got off, so very safe. The beach was absolutely beautiful. We went to little Jon, Cap Cana. I could have stayed there a full week!!! Not many stores so shopping wasn’t the best.
The excursion was supposed to be a tour of Rum factory, Chocolate factory, Coffee factory and Cigar factory. They were all within one compound. There was no factory tours at all. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! MONEY WASTED!

Beautiful. When you get off the tender there are booths set up where you can buy transfers to different beaches. We went to a beach that had a pool and bar/restaurant had a fantastic day.

Went deep sea fishing, the water was very high and not much fun. We had a few bites and landed a few fish. The crew was outstanding and very helpful.
Took a shuttle to Abi Beach. Smaller beach, all new, pool, bar, great staff. $15 per person
