We are going next summer and wondered if anyone has been.
I stayed on the north of the island a few years back but have heard that the south is much better for beaches and its the carribean sea rather than the atlantic.

Stayed in an iberostar resort in the south several years ago and it was absolutely fantasic. The weather was gorgeous, the sands white and the sea was not that cold at all! You'll have a fab time.

Where abouts was it countto10 can you remember?

ooooh ive been to bavaro and the year before we went to san juan in the north.
the beaches were white in the south and gold in the north but it didnt really make a difference to us. whilst in the north we went on an excuusion to the 'bounty island' which was absolutely beautiful, sugar white sand and turquoise water. aahhhh....

we found the people in the north more friendly than the south, other than that, i think we enjoyed both ends equally.

we stayed in the bahia principe in the north and the occidental grand flamenco in the south.

at you going again!
we want to go again but as i am now a sahm and we think it would be cruel to make the kids have the injections (they are 1 & 2 years old, plus the flights with them! arrgghhh) we probably wont be going back until we are well into our 40's or early 50's!!

yes I've been to the Breezes Punta Cana when I was pregnant. It was ok-we all got a bit of a dodgy stomach but thats only to be expected in Domincan apparently! Take your diacalms and you will have a fab time. Beach was just beautiful and plenty to do.

We will be taking ds who will be 2.4 and ds2 who will be about 7 month by then, and taking both sets of parents as we are thinking about getting married there as well.
Do you know if you can still do the dolphin swim at ocean world from the south??

sorry I have no idea. You could try google?

I can't remember but I will try and find out - there were a lot of excursions and I'm sure one of them was dolphin related but a lot got canx due to rough seas - they'd had a bit of a hurricane before we went (autumn time!)
