Took this excursion from Carnival Freedom, very nice bus picked us up and took us to this replica village with very pretty views, small shops and museum. The replica buildings were pretty amazing. There is a small shop where you can pick up sodas and small souveniers at reasonable prices. The tour was a little long given there isn't that much to see, but you definitely want to remain in one of the resort or guided tours in the DR, some people the next day were telling us they ended up in bad places when they took unofficial tours / taxi's to see the "real DR".
