Isla Saona-Dominican Republic

In May 2015 we headed happily and a little stressed to Munich Airport, because this was our first trip outside Europe and we were going to fly 8 hours. To our satisfaction, the flight went smoothly and when we arrived at the airport in the Dominican Republic we were deeply impressed. The airport seemed covered with straw and there were open spaces, we already had the beauty of Caribbean buildings.

Top hotels we recommend:Majestic Colonial Punta Cana,Majestic Elegance Punta Cana ,Majestic Mirage Punta Cana,Bahia Principe Luxury Ambar

This time we also traveled with Booking.com, because we had traveled before and we were satisfied.

We chosed the Bahia Principe Luxury Ambar and we were very satisfied. I can just recommend it!

We stayed in Dominican Republic 11 days and we really enjoyed or time there.The only thing you would know from the first day is that,if you will leave the hotel ground you will assume the consequences.

It is assumed that if you leave the hotel area of ​​Punta Cana you may be in danger. We decided to listen to these tips and all the trips we made we had transport from the hotel and back. When we went to the club, we chose to take a taxi.

We didn’t think we could be really in danger, but when we returned from the trip on the islands we passed the town of the inhabitants and unfortunately, we saw a completely different world than the luxurious one in the hotels. They lived in great poverty and that made us very sad.

We ordered our trips with Viator and Get Your Guide.We always got cheaper tours here and we always managed to save money.

We chose the tour to Isla Saona, Isla Catalina,Buggies Tour ,Santo Domingo and we also bought a ticket for Imagine Punta Cana ,a club in a cave-it was very nice and they had good music.These are our memories from this amazing vacation:
