    Hi Ladies!!


    Hope everyone's planning is coming along. We are scheduled to go to Punta Cana to visit 4 of the resorts we have on our list for our May 2013 wedding. I have looked on a map and of course the resorts are not close to each other. I have been trying to do some research about renting a car to get from one resort to another but everyone says, STAY AWAY!!


    Can someone who has been to Punta Cana recently to do the same thing shed some light on this? Are the drivers really that bad? Are the roads just dirt as most of the sites are making it seem? How did you get from one resort to another, taxi's? Are the taxi's reasonably priced? Any other transportation options?


    Sigh...I am afraid I will spend more money in taxi fare getting to and from these resort then we spend on airfare from NY!


    Thanks a bunch!!

      Last year I went and did site inspections before choosing Dreams Punta Cana. We rented a car from Budget and had no problems whatso ever. The roads were just fine. One time I did get lost and we stopped at a resort and they were so nice that a motortaxi had us follow him (a twenty minute ride) to the door of the resort we were looking for. I say go for it and rent a car, you have more freedom!

        We did a site inspection in March and we had our hotel get us a cab and the cab driver stayed with us for the entire day and drove us to each hotel.  He even waited sometimes for an hour outside of the hotel while we were inside talking to the wedding coordinators.  Although yes he didn't speak much english, he understood the basics when we spoke to him and got us everywhere we needed to be. He was very nice.  I forgot was the exact price was but we both felt it was very reasonable and tipped him very well.  If we were doing a site inspection again I would do the same thing again..

        Hope this helps at all!
