There are many things to do and see and eat. Check out the amazing deals currently to the Dominican Republic and see below for our favorite places to go. Our office recently had the pleasure of expiecencing this gem and visited Iberostar Grand Bavaro and also Eden Roc Cap Cana.

Some of our Favorite Things to Do

Bavaro Beach

Popular beach with calm, turquoise water & white sand backed by shops, restaurants & hotels. Bávaro is a tourist area in Punta Cana, located in La Altagracia province, the easternmost province of the Dominican Republic. Bavaro was developed together with the resort area and tourist region of Punta Cana, as a town for resort workers. As hotels started to rise along the east coast, north from Punta Cana, Bavaro itself became a center of services. Playa Corales in Bavaro is a white postcardlike beach. Fishermen, water activities and nice chrystal water make this beach a interesting place.
