The Punta Cana Mike tour was exactly what we wanted and was a GREAT day. David was our guide and we really enjoyed his stories and information. We were picked up at our resort at 8:30am and our first stop was the Dominican school Centro Educarivo Shalom- Dios De Paz – Hoyo de Friusa, Bavaro DR that has 200 children attending with a split session each day. We did take school supplies and sweets. When we arrived the children that were waiting for the afternoon classes to start surrounded our van and had open arms to greet us to the school. I did pass out the candy but gave all the school supplies to the founder Magdalena, who was so grateful for all the donations she receives. Then we went to Mund Autentico- Don Lucas where we got to watch them make the Don Lucas cigars, then went into the show room where we could buy cigars. Also there in the store I bought some beautiful Larimar jewelry that was stunning, tee shirts and tote bags. Our next stop was the Car Wash where they not only wash cars they have the coldest beers (Thanks David) and a good game of Domino s, what a blast!!!! From there we went to Higuley and went shopping at their Walmart where we bought rum, coffee, vanilla, domino's, cookies, sun tan lotion, tee shirts and a pair of sandals, the prices were great. Then a stop at the Haitians store to buy wood carvings, almost everything was $10 and such beautiful work. Next we stopped at the Open Farm Market where the villagers brought their produce to sale; it was a site to see. I did buy fresh cinnamon & coco beans. Our last stop was at Macao Beach one of David’s favorite places to hang out on Sunday’s, it was beautiful. We arrived back at our resort around 2:30pm, which I paid David at that time. This was a GREAT tour and I would encourage everyone to do it, save all your shopping for this tour and bring an extra suitcase to get it all home. Thanks David for an awesome day trip, we will never forget it!!!!
