HELP!!!! Visiting Resorts in Punta Cana BUT.....

Recommended Posts

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!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
