We stayed for a week at Iberostar Bavaro Punta Cana resort. This was the first diving experience for my 12 year old son. Diving instructors Giacomo, Angela, and Sasha were very patient, supportive, and made it a great unforgettable experience for us! The trip to Isla Catalina was well worth the extra money as this is truly a diving paradise!!!... More
