    We used Transekur on three occasions during our trip to the DR. They were excellent each time. For each trip, we were sent an email confirming our trip the day before. On the day of our trip, we were sent an email with the drivers name, picture, and description of the vehicle and plate number. We were picked up at the airport PUJ on time and as detailed in the email. The service was excellent, and our driver was very safe taking us to the resort. Halfway through our trip, we transferred across the island a 90-minute ride to our second resort. The driver Rogelio was outstanding. He was on time, drove very safely, and was able to find a good place for a quick bathroom break. Our third trip was also excellent, on time, and very safe. Maicol is another excellent driver and delivered us on time to the airport. Transekur is consistent, very clean, and has outstanding communication. We travel out of the country 4 to 5 times a year, and Transekur is one of the best transportation companies we have found. They are prompt on responding to emails, and they provide an in country phone number if needed. The drivers are safe, clean, and courteous. The vehicles are clean, in good repair, and comfortable.

    Beautiful reserve to learn about their foundation and the importance of conserving the land! We had a wonderful tour guide, Mo! He was so passionate in his work that it draws you into everything he says. He was very friendly, knowledgeable and great personality. He made sure we were both on track literally with time and on the paths (several people kept wondering off) to ensure we were learning and spent good amounts of time to see spend at the lagoons. Thank you Mo for your wonderful work! The lagoons are the cherry on top of the trip! Beautiful & worth the tour!!
    *Bring cash to Tip your tour guides generously. Show your appreciation for their handwork and kindness. They remind us of teachers… patient, knowledgeable, giving everyone what they paid for BUT have to stop to ask those politely not to wondering off, don’t touch things they shouldn’t yet and deal with them asking for more time to play! (And these are the ones that don’t tip, smh)

    Macao Beach is something of a hidden gem of Punta Cana beaches, being relatively untouched with clean sands, watersports opportunities, and an escape from the city crowds.

    It’s a popular surfing spot and was listed by UNESCO as one of the Caribbean’s best beaches, mostly down to the clear waters and lovely white sand fringed by tall palm trees. waves are not as smooth as the main beaches of Bavaro, but it’s for those who desire a day at the beach free of crowds. also, sands particles- It’s huge, and not as fine as Bavaro's beaches.

    It's also highly popular with surfers due to the great pipes that form here. It's a favorite among locals, and a nearby all-inclusive resort lets you be pampered between beach excursions. It is much quieter than Playa Bavaro, and it is worth visiting, especially if you want to try awesome freshly caught fish at affordable prices

    Entrance: Google search for Restaurant El Fogón de Doña Mery, that’s your entrance.

    Parking: some guy will stop you at the entrance, and he will guide you.
    Parking Fee: As per guard wish ;) try 50 or 100 Pesos.

    Great day at the water park. The kiddos and my husband really enjoyed the slides even though they were rough we went back a second time. Buffet was pretty good there as well.

    The beach is sand and next to the water. Many clouds for shade it is warm and fun.
    A dog likes snacks on the sand. There are many waves in the water for you fun time.

    The waves are strong but once you pass the place where they break out you can just lie on top of the waves and let yourself go for hours.

    Very nice tour that is ran in groups consistently as I stopped to utilize the restroom my group had moved on. The one stop tour will explain how to make cigars and then the natural stone that is blue turned into various jewelry items. The rum tasting was good as you go on the tour. The vanilla is what I went there for! The vanilla is so pure and real so I stock up on mamajuana and vanilla its great for your health. Cacao Tea was something I taste and it was not bad. The chocolate was so soft and fresh! This was a great tour!!

    I read about this mall having a shuttle service when deciding on Punta Cana. Ironically my husband forgot his shoes at home so we needed to him a pair right away. Our hotel couldn’t provide any information, so they said. I found the phone number in a local travel info blog. That was the hardest thing about the process so I’ll put it here - +1 (829) 521-2388.
    A quick text, a pick up in less than an hour and a new pair of leather shoes found.
    By simply going into 3 shops our return trip, of basically equal distance as the airport, was free. This is a great savings.
    While not a lot of shops or multilevel, we were able to kill a couple of hours. The ice cream stand had amazing varieties. Driver was very nice and the trip felt very safe.

    This church is amazing. We own a condo in the area and go to Sunday mass. Very uplifting and the parish is so welcoming. Gospel in Spanish and English. A sanctuary to visit with The Lord!

    From the moment we landed we were greeted by Reimon Benitcz. He was kind and made us feel very welcomed. Reimom took our luggage and loaded into a beautiful SUV. He had water for us and the air conditioning on as it was very hot outside. We had great conversations on the way to the resort. Overall 10/10 rating for Reimon Benitcz. Highly recommend.

    We loved Elvis, he has the best personality.
    The lagoon was wonderful especially after walking around in the heat.

    After touring the island, we went to cool off at the pool, where there was a water slide, zip lining and opportunities to go snorkeling or water skiing. The weather was gorgeous and the shops were exquisite! Lots of of opportunity to take photos, watch the natives perform and play music. I also had my passport stamped too.
