I have read good things about the Coba tour. Also, what about taking the ferry to Cozumel and renting mopeds to see the island.

I read mixed reviews about Xel-ha. Some people says its wonderful, others say its crowded & you can find better snorkling for less money. Maybe it depends on the season or day. I thought I'd put it on the list for people iterested, but I figured I'd go snorkling at Yal Ku lagoon instead. I have not been to either of these places which is why feedback is great. I have only been to Cancun. I was 17 & all I wanted to do was buy T-shirts, drink at the hotel bar & go to Senor frogs. This time around I want an adventure!

 

Has anyone done the zip lines? All the excursions I could find involved bike riding. I fell off a bike in high school & haven't been on one since. I think I should learn to ride again so I can do the zip line.

I thought of another thing- ATVs through the jungle. I will have some guest who would be really interested in that.

I have mentioned this on threads before, but The Mayan Encounter by Altournative was AWESOME! It combined several activities into one day, and was just so fun. My fiance and I travel all over and do tons of excursions, and we both agree this is the best one we have ever done!

Thanks! I'll look it up & add it to the list. Currently I am looking at Paamul Bay for snorkling & scuba diving. I just found out its a very close walk from my hotel.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
