      segway tour of Playa Blanco: $60 each, 3 hrs. If you have ever wanted to try a segway, this is the way to do it. You get to see a pretty neat beach/celebrity hotspot and an ecological reserve. One word of caution though, when they tell you how NOT to use a segway/ get off a segway, listen. My Father in Law tried to step off the side and ended up in the Bavaro Hospital for 3 days with broken ribs. Missed his flight home, fortunatly has good travel insurance

      Trip to Santo Domingo: Ok, I will make this short and say if you want to go to the capital arrange a trip for just you and your group with a knowledgeable driver through the hotel. There is lots to see and if you charter your own driver you won't have to waste time seeing things that don't intrest you (ie the very dirty boring financial district) and spend more time on this worth while (the old city and cave of the 3 eyes). I believe that there was a way to have an 8 passanger van for $400 usd. We used Hotel Bed's tour and it was terrible

      Manati Park, $30 pp: a fun way to spend 3 hours, but any more then that and you will be bored it's a zoo with some great seal, dolphin, parrot and dancing horse shows. The Taino village they have though can only be described as politically incorrect.

      Thanks so much for the info, I like the sounds of the segway, minus your father in law getting hurt. Sorry again!!
      very helpful, and reasonable price. Where did you get this excursion from? any website?

        I second the "Outback Safari excursion" it was amazing. You really get to see Dominican life and get a sense of the culture. You ride around in a truck and you don't have to walk or hike at all - you go to several locations. You go to a home, see some farms, then have then have great dinner, relax in some hammocks, go to some local shops. It ends in this amazing swim on the beach. They serve drinks the whole time and it was a ton of fun.

          Hey...I actually haven't booked anything further...I'm kind of holding off until a couple months before. I think because we're going in July it won't be difficult to book a trip. We're offering our guests a half day snorkeling trip to the Marinarium if they would like. We decided to go with the half day because of the heat of being on the ocean for an entire day! I'll keep everyone posted on what we decide!

                I think I may offer the Outback Safari for Saturday as an option. I know a lot of our guests are already asking about things to do. Thanks!

                  Hi! We have done the Bavaro Runners full-day tour and that was great! Highly recommend! We have arranged a tour for our guests through them during our wedding week. We also have done the Buggy Tours-- it was okay, but I would not recommend it. The buggies are very loud, muddy (fun, but not combined with sunburn!) and there are several sales pitches along the tour- much less educational than Bavaro Runner. Good luck!

                    Hope I don't sound stupid... but how do you get to Saona Island? It sounds like a great place to visit.

                      Here is a question for you guys:

                      Do you think of the excursions around the DR would be a good place for a TTD session? Thought about trying something different rather than the traditional pics...

                      Any ideas are welcome!!!
                      Thank you!! :-)
