WHY YOU SHOULD DO EXCURSIONS WITH LOCAL COMPANIES 

The hotels in Punta Cana use fear-mongering tactics on clients, portraying Bavaro Punta Cana as a dangerous place, instructing client's not to leave the hotel premises, I will let you in, on a little well-kept secret. Bavaro Punta Cana is very safe to walk around day or night, we encourage everyone who visits Punta Cana to go on excursions and activities and get the most out of your vacation, there is so much to see and so much to experience outside the hotel walls. By using a local excursion company you are supporting the local economy and at the same time getting a much different friendly experience from the locals who in most cases personally provide the service. Choosing the right local company is easy to find by following a few online searching steps you can easily identify a proper company to purchase your excursions avoiding fake online companies or an impostor who can steal your money or sell you an off-the-road activity with no insurance or proper safety standard, Make sure you do a little research on Google, Facebook or trip advisor under  the company's name if the company doesn't have reviews or a sound online presence do not use that company because most likely is fake or hasn't been on the business long enough

Here is a list and explanation of the excursions available in Punta Cana.

 

WHY IS ALWAYS BETTER TO PURCHASE EXCURSIONS BEFORE YOU ARRIVE?

Purchasing your excursions before arriving at the hotel is always better because 

1-You can take your time analyzing and learning about the activity you would like to do.

2- Once you purchase your excursions you will have all of your vacation time to do the things you want to do instead of using your vacation time to negotiate excursion prices in the hotel lobby 

3- Usually purchasing activities inside the hotel coat double in competition with a local online company due to the high fees the vendor has to pay the hotel for the in-house license to sell excursions inside the hotel. 

4- Usually inside the hotel vendors take advantage of the fact that they are the only option inside the hotel, for the most part, they can not negotiate a discount or better prices because they are part of a large company that only has set prices and set rules for all

5- Get a company that accepts tentative reservations meaning you don't have to pay in advance and can cancel the reservations at any time with no charges. 

 

Is easy to book excursions before arrival, as long as you don't have to pay in advance local companies offer better packages and they are for the most part the same excursion that the hotel offers, the hotel excursions are in most cases double the price compare with online companies there are few companies who offer tentative reservations, where the clients don't need to pay in advance using the tentative reservations method the client will have the chance to inquire and learn about an activity or excursion before hotel arrival, having the chance to cancel if they change their mind with no charges at all. 

 

HAPPY TRAVELS.
