    Our day was long but Nacho our tour guide kept it exciting! It was a long commute from Punta Cana to Santo Domingo, but the coach bus ride kept us comfortable with a stop before and after. Take comfy shoes and lots of water.

    Not sure but your resort should be able to let you know if they have tours that pick you up from the reception or whether it is elsewhere.
