    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.

    Beautiful. The lunch was traditional Dominican and was delicious. The staff were friendly. We had a guide named Chicken. He spoke three languages which was amazing.

    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.

    Coco Bongo is Club you have to visit if ever in the Dominican Republic Area. Its beautiful and the shows were amazing. You don't have to buy the open bar if you're not a big drinker but if you want to drink until 1am, definitely go for that option.

    Please get these on time. Leave 2 hrs before the start time. The line up gets very long.

    Very interesting experience. It was my first time and didn’t know it could be tiring but it was great. Had fun with our driver/guide Sandre. Would go back again.

    Very fun times. Fun show and great experience with sharks and stingrays. Food was just a sandwich but can't complain too much since used to buffets all week at resort.

    We chose the mountain ride, which was a great choice. The sweeping vistas were incredible. We rode by many herds of gentle cows and even startled some baby pigs; their mother was nonplussed.

    We were matched with very well trained and well kept horses. I rode Risenoria. She was magnificent. She had an excellent working walk and enjoyed being in the lead of our group of 5, including Gabi. We had several opportunities to canter/gallop and she was incredibly fast and surefooted. I always felt completely safe and in control.

    My husband, who is a beginner rider (has only done some boring nose to tail trail rides), was able to canter as well. He said that this was the most fun he's ever had on a horse.

    My 2 daughters were also able to canter. My youngest has the most horse experience (does lessons) and she loved cantering/galloping in the open countryside.

    We were able to do a little river swim with Risenoria and some of the other horses. It was really amazing to sit bareback on her, while she swam for a bit.

    This was the highlight of my Punta Cana trip. Book with Gabi. She takes such good care of the horses and she also has an animal rescue, where she matches up rescue dogs with loving owners both within and outside of the Dominican Republic.

    Place was fun. I did eat some ice cubes and got really sick so while some resorts filter their water - this place does not. But I did have a lot of fun and would 100% go back. There are a lot of locals.
