Beautiful tropical rain forest and rural Dominican countryside. Went on the "jeep" tour excursion...which is actually an open bus which takes you to a number of different sites across the island...such as fresh cocoa sampling shop and a waterfall and rustic beach. I absolutely loved this tour. So much to see from the "jeep".
GORGEOUS. Felt like we were at a private resort. Beautiful pool and surroundings.

Went to the whale 'museum'. $3.00 admission. Small but had a nice skeleton of a humpback and some interesting pictures and information. Had a nice walk back to the tender pick up area, avoided most of the horse droppings along the way. Weather was very warm for November. I would like to return when whales are in the area. Jan-Feb.
I honestly don't know why this is a stop. I felt like we deserved our money back from Norwegian. It has a very unsafe feeling, and there really is nothing to do. Our two year old son was with us. The kids followed him around trying to take his sippy cup. We ended up going back to the ship early.
Took a ''tuk-tuk'' taxi to get to Cayennas Del Mar beach, which we see from the ship, about 20 minutes away from the dock. Quiet area.
