Hi, my name is Danielle and I just joined this site.

My boyfriend and I are going to the Dominican Republic June 6th-12th ( we arrive on the 7th) and we're trying to find things to do in the Punta Cana area. We definitely want to do a dolphin encounter and we wanna do some adventurous things as well (no swimming with sharks or water rafting). I would also love to go zip lining, so if anyone's knows of a place we can do that, it would be appreciated.

We're pretty open to doing whatever so I'd appreciate all your suggestions :)

We were in Punta Cana last August. Two families with 17-20 year old kids. We booked a trip online before we arrived with -snip-. Charlie is the co-owner and was our guide. He met us at our hotel with our transportation...real sand buggies. They seat two or four and you drive. You have to know how to use a stick shift. They only take groups of about 4 buggies, so it is very personal.
We had the most amazing time ever. We went all over to a beach, to a cave for a swim, got coconuts from the locals, went on all these dirt, muddy roads!! It was a blast!!! You must take old clothes if you go.
We had so much fun we booked Charlie for another whole day and went on an all day trip up the coast. It was the HIGHLIGHT of our vacation.
