Top Answers To Punta Cana Travel Questions
Hi Jan, I think you're best bet is to contact the hotel concierge and see if he/she can point you in the direction of some good local shops.
Weather at this time of the year tends to be very comfortable, staying in the mid-70s to 80s, with not much humidity. Punta Cana stays a little cooler given its more exposed setting on DR's eastern end, though not by much (its breezier location also spells great windsurfing and kiteboarding!).
Two great choices should meet your requirements (and both of which are reviewed in Away.com's guide to family vacations in the Dominican Republic at: http://vacation.away.com/dominican-republic/travel-v2-cid309-dominican+republic-cid350262-family-vacations.html): Paradisus Palma Real and Club Med Punta Cana.
Not to throw too many more options into your DR all-inclusive soup, but I'd look at the Paradisus Palma Real and Club Med Punta Cana into the mix. The Paradisus features a newish Reserve annex with big Family Concierge suites that offer adjoining rooms, sprawling living areas, and extras like PlayStations and milk-and-cookie turndown service. The Reserve is also site of the kid's club and children's pools and play areas. Here's a link to our expert review on the place: http://bit.ly/dKHgOq
