Definitely the best vacation we ever went on! Now we have so many memories, wallpaper pictures of palm trees and the warm Caribbean sea :D Definitely worth going and seeing :)))
Be Live Canoa probably has the best beach in the surroundings as it's wide with sandy surface and a beautiful view - perfect for taking lots of pictures!! It is very well taken care off, has beach beds and cocktail bars!! You can also dance various types of latino dances with hotels' animators, play volleyball, take kayaks, etc.
Food was amazing and we got to taste all different types of food in 4-5 different restaurants (Japanese, Mexican, Brasilian, etc.). Hotel is very romantic and you can have candlelight lobster dinner.
Hotel is lgbt friendly.
You should book all tours in advance as providers on site are not reliable. Tours and products are expensive.
Definitely would recommend going to tobacco factories - Tabacalera de Garcia or La Flor Dominicana. Also recommend buying cigars, cigarillos with flavours and, of course, rum (Barcelo and Brugal).
Do NOT go to Saona island! All the tour providers actually give you the same thing but for a wide range of prices, but all you see is a crowded beach full of bees that won't leave you in peace. Water is shallow for about half a mile in distance from the beach, and the tour operators don't really care who is or where who is in the water so they park their speedboats on the beach among the people - too crowded!!
Expensive local calls!!
