Are there any excursions to take?
Of course there are excursions available!  While sitting on the beach and taking in the beautiful scenery is enough for some of us, others like to go out and discover the adventure.    When you arrive you can visit the excursion center and they will help you set up your trips for the week.  They offer excursions such as:  Ocean World, river rafting, jeep safari to the water falls, monster truck, Catamaran trips, tours of Haiti, Santo Domingo, and Puerto Plata City, Horseback riding, deep sea fishing, snorkeling trips, and much more. 

How do I go about booking my trip?
Simply send us an email or call with the dates and accommodations you desire and we will check with the resort and get back to you as soon as possible.  Once availability is confirmed you let us know if you want to proceed with booking.  When booking we will need the names of guests traveling to the resort.  You will make payment for your accommodations with us through paypal or sending a personal check.  A deposit (amount will be based off of type of accommodation) is due when booking and the remaining balance is due 1 month prior to your trip.  We will verify payment then email you a confirmation number from the resort. 
Upon confirmation we will send you a mail confirmation package and rental agreement.  We will also need your travel itinerary so we can arrange pick up at the airport.
