My family of 4 are planning to stay in all inclusive Majestic Colonial resort for 5 days. My question is - Is it really necessary to rent a car for 5 days versus hailing a taxi for transportation. Most of our days will be consumed in the resort not unless there are some famous places( a must see while in Punta Cana) that we have to use a car for convenience? Is it worth also to rent a car basing from the scenario I stated. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks

My son and his university buddies are going to Punta Cana in March. They are staying in a condo. I went last year and stayed for six weeks. We found the grocery stores 3 times the price of ours in Canada. I know that the people that work in Punta Cana cannot afford to live their let alone buy their food . They have to eat. Does anyone know where they buy their food ? that is where I want my son and his friends to stalk up > They simply cannot afford to sell their kidneys to buy from the Punta Cana grocery stores ....haha

Hi, after several years in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, I'm moving to Punta Cana next week. We (my wife and me) plan to stay for about 3 years, same duration as her work contract. As from my profile, you can see I like MTB, cannyoing and mountain in general. Other than Pico Duarte natural park in the center of the island, is there other place near Punta Cana to enjoy good trails and mountain hikes? Any other advices will be welcomed. Thanks!
We are a family of 4 including 2 young children and are going on holiday to Punts Cana the last two weeks of July. Just wondering if it's cheaper and easy enough to book trips and activities with the locals when we are there rather than booking with our travel company.
I would like from this year Puntana Cana in the month of August, but my friends not recommended it to me because of the rainy season. Looking for a destination that resembles Puntana Cana where I can go in August and enjoy the sun. My budget is more at least 1,200 € and I am from Belgium.
Thank you in advance for your help.
Has anyone stayed at this resort? If so, any feedback/
Is the weather good for the most part this time of year or did we make a mistake to book late July and are the crowds a bit less? Also, I see some people warning of a lot more mosquitoes this time of year. Is that particularly true?
Thanks for the help.
I will be having my wedding at Dreams Resort and Spa in January 2016. I would like to hold a brunch for all of my guest. Does anyone know of a good place that can accommodate up to 30 guest near the Dreams Resort?

We have stayed at Bahia Principe in Mexico and have been happy.
Wondering how the beach is, crowdwise & chair availability, at the Punta Cana area complex. We are up fairly early and get to the beach around 9ish - will we be able to find lounge chairs?
Is the food any worse than typical AI food? I am a vegetarian and picky beyond that so I basically eat salad and bread for a week, but want to be sure the rest of our crew is ok with the food.
Is it worth paying to stay at the Esmeralda for the room service and to be closer to the beach? We don't mind walking, kinda nice to walk off some of the food & alcohol, but if it is crazy far from the Punta Cana part, we may pay. We like room service anyway.
Any other info would be great - we range in age from 28 - 72 yrs old so quite a mix - but just want to relax and have fun.
