After 10 or so trips to Cuba in the last 5-6 years we felt it was time for a change and we are going to Punta Cana for the first time.
We are going to the Excellence El Carmen for our anniversary / honeymoon that never happened (5 years late!).
Any hints? Anything I would not usually pack for Cuba I will definitely miss if I forget? Or anything I should absolutely not bring?
Is the vip at the airport worth it? It is much more expensive than in Cuba (35$ vs 125$) to get fast tracked and I am really not sure I want to spend that much just to wait in a little more comfortable place.
Any recommendation on a private transfer? Again not sure if it is worth it since I would not mind the bus ride for our first time. I’ve heard about Punta Cana Mike and DAT but no first hand experiences.
We do not plan on taking any excursions since our main goal is to relax without the kids and get some much needed rest, but if we feel like going out, what should we go see?
Thanks in advance!
