We then stopped at a store for some Presidante...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Bahia Principe from April 4-11. We arrived late in the evening on the 4th (sunwing). It was just over an hour drive from the airport, with a stop off at another resort to drop off some people.

Just returned yesterday from the Bahia and we all loved it. We are 2 couples in our 40's with kids, but we didn't bring them... We loved the beach, playing in the waves and at the rocks.
