4 Times to Punta Cana for me. Had wanted to visit a few others places/resorts around the country, especially in Samana, but never happened.
I now travel much more often to Cuba, with a few Bahamas cruises in between each year. Can't beat the cost. The D.R has become very pricey, especially when travellng solo!!
Loved my time in Punta Cana and would go back. But I value maximizing my vacations south and I can no longer do that in the Dominican.
But I will be back one day.....as it was the beaches/resorts of Punta Cana that made me fall in love with travelling south!
