    If you don't mind me asking, where are you from?
    Also...call cheapcarribean.com directly. They do not do group rates per se. But they will give you a direct contact who can handle all of your guests travel arrangements and it will be a bit more personal and organized than telling everyone to book online.

        Does anyone know if there is anything that is outside the resort that would be fun to do beside excursions eg. shopping, clubbing, historical sites

          I believe that traveling outside the resort areas is not really recommended. This is from a couple of different sources including friends who are Dominican...not that it's "terrible" I was just told tourists are better off staying at the resort. A "Better safe than sorry" kind of attitude.

              Hiya!!! Please do not be afraid to go out of the hotel. The only issue with dreams is it is a little further out of the Bavaro village area, so a short taxi ride will get you to Bavaro. Once there, there are a few plazas with shops, bars, a cinema, hard rock cafe etc. it is small and still developing, but still worth an afternoon out of the hotel complex.

              There are loads of excursions to do which are sold at the tour desks in the hotels, taking one of the big open top trucks is a great way to see the real DR. Or theres plenty of boat options too, like a relaxing catamaran or swimming with sharks and rays :) HAVE FUN!!

                PS: The historical sights are mainly all in the capital, Santo Domingo which is 3.5 hours by road.

                  i definitely recommend the fodor's book on the DR. my photog actually sent it to me and it is the best way to see exactly where all of the resorts are with respect to other attractions. it also has fantastic tips and info for just traveling to the DR in general!

                    Are you Dreams brides using the resort photographer? I've looked at the pics and they look really nice! Just wondering what everyone else is doing?

                      i am bringing my own photographer, but that is definitely a personal preference. i loved her style and i know that the day is going to be such a blur that we need it captured right!! i think i was turned off by how few pictures they offer in their packages, but they still have decent prices are their pictures are very pretty.

                      like i said, defintely personal preference, but if you are at all interested in bringing an outside photographer there are a few choices in the DR and i can pass along names of some of the amazing photogs on here that i have talked to as well.
