The vibrant destination of Punta Cana lies on the Eastern coast of the Dominican Republic, complete with its own international Airport, and lined with over 40 miles of breathtaking beaches. With more than 40 beachfront hotels, a great choice of world-class golf courses, endless water sports activities, and exquisite dining options. Punta Cana is one of the most popular and by far the fastest growing destination of the Caribbean.

l Punta Cana is in the Eastern Time Zone.

l Weather in July ranges from 76-90 degrees.

l You DO NEED a passport to travel to the Dominican Republic (no exceptions, even for infants & children). However you DO NOT need any immunizations to travel to Mexico or the Dominican Republic.

l It is not recommended to drink the water from the tap. All water and ice served in the restaurants and bars is purified. Bottled water is also readily available (even use this for brushing your teeth). Please be careful if and when venturing outside of the resort.

l Most resorts do not accept cash payments, so please remember to take a credit card for excursions, etc. Also, make sure to call your credit card company before leaving to make sure they know you are going to be traveling.

l American dollars are recognized and accepted in the Dominican Republic (tips, taxis, local gift items found off property).

l It is not recommended to use traveler checks - as you are often charged a percentage to change your checks to cash.

l Most all-inclusive resorts do not have ATM machines on property & if they do it will produce local currency, not USD $.

l There is a $10 per person tourist card fee payable in cash upon arrival at the airport (USD). Hang onto your travel card that they give you on the plane as you'll need this as you go through customs. Also be sure to have your passport or other identification ready.

l Electrical outlets are the same at Dreams Resorts as they are in the U.S. You may want to bring a surge protector if you have multiple things to plug in.

l Dreams Resorts tries their best to honor room requests, adjoining rooms, etc. based on availablility. Please e-mail Aida E. Cabrera or Eileen Ostos at concierge@dreamspuntacana.com.do to make your requests about one to two weeks before your trip. Also, if you are unhappy with your room upon arrival, please tell the front desk and request a different room.

l If you will be traveling solo and would prefer to share a room with someone else (to take advantage of less-expensive rooms), please contact our Wedding Coordinator, Charlotte, and we will try and work something out.

Traveling with Children:
l Eileen Ostas, Chief Concierge E-Mail: concierge@dreamspuntacana.com.do

l You DO need a passport to travel to the Dominican Republic (no exceptions, even for infants & children). However you DO NOT need any immunizations to travel to Mexico or the Dominican Republic.

l Transportation from the airport to the hotel is usually by a van or small bus. You will need to bring your own car seat. However, this is up to you...it is not mandatory (legally required) in the DR.

l Bring plenty of diapers and medical creams (for diaper rashes, etc.) as toiletries are quite expensive. Diapers may possibly be available in one of the shops in the lower lobby, in Guest Services, or in the small shopping center down the road (read in reviews); however, this is not certain and again may be pricey.

l Cribs for your rooms are available. However, there is a limited number, so please e-mail Eileen Ostos, Chief Concierge, a week or so before you go to make arrangements.

l Laundry service is available at an extra cost. You may consider bringing a small container of detergent, doing small loads in the sink, and hanging clothes over the tub/shower

l Explorer's Club for Kids provides activities for children 3-12. Parents can spoil themselves with some alone time while kids are entertained with arts and crafts, exploration, science, a pirate ship waterslide and rock climbing wall, campout adventures and more fun in the sun. (Reviews have stated that parents are not allowed into the Explorer's Club - only children 3-12; however, parents are given a pager and have to stay on the resort grounds (no excursions) while your children are in attendance. From the reviews, we have read nothing but wonderful things about the Explorer's Club and the resort being family-friendly.)

l Explorer's Club Caretakers are very good about reapplying sunscreen throughout the course of the day (read in multiple reviews). Please pack a bag for your child with sunscreen, water shirt, hat, floaties/lifejacket, etc.

l Babysitting is available for infants under 3 years of age. Reviews and forums state that it runs $10-$15 per hour. You can set this up with guest services...the earlier the better.

l There are no microwaves in your rooms (to warm up formula, etc). If you are in need of one, please contact Eileen Ostas and see what she can do for you. Also, another option is to warm the bottled water up in the coffee maker.

l Reviews state that there is no dress code for children at the restaurants. Along with this, World Cafe seems to be the favorite pick for children.

l If your child has food allergies, please contact Eileen Ostas and she will work with you to make sure your child is safe throughout your stay.

l Items to consider packing for infants/toddlers: car seat, stroller, sunscreen, water shirt and hat, sunglasses, swimmers, diapers for length of stay, medical creams, life jacket/floaties (rather than rely on the resort having your child's size), small container of laundry detergent, sippy cup, fruit snacks, etc.

l hat
l wedding outfit
l lots of $1 bills for tipping

Set sail and loosen up on deck soaking up the sunshine while relaxing on the catamaran's net. Float and relax in the endless shallow turquoise waters of Saona - here you will experience perfection! Dance Merengue 'till you drop, relax in a hammock under the shade of a nearby palm tree or join a game of volleyball, go for a swim or work on your tan, truly the most versatile of excursions!

Be sure to indulge in the mouth-watering barbecue lunch and refreshing cocktails that just keep coming. An exhilarating speedboat ride will take you to a natural swimming pool in the middle of the ocean. Here you can swim in the shallow waters and search for huge starfish. You can also enjoy cool drinks while dreaming away in the shallow water.

Professional staff with top quality equipment will heighten your chance of "catching the big one!"
