Booking Excursions

Hey all,

Just 5 weeks to go until we fly to Gatwick for the night then head to Puerto Plata the next day.

We have decided on the excursion we want to do and I was wondering if anyone can give me the best place to book them and any idea of a rough price.

We are looking to go to Monkey Jungle and up the Cable Car.

We are staying at BlueBay Villas so if there are any reliable beach vendors we would happily use them but we are also up for a wander into the plaza if you can recommend anyone there (I've read James there is a good shout).

Thanks for any tips.

Can you do the Monkey Jungle without the Zip Line?

Yes you can just do the monkey habitat and many do just this. It is an amazing experience.

For your cable car trip you might want to consider booking a 1/2 day trip with a taxi, usually $50. They could take you to the cable car, Haitian market, Brugal Factory, ambar museum, etc.

There's a mall that's only a 5minute walk from Blue Bay, they also have lots of vendors there for the excursions.. Last time I went James was right there in the mall :D Maybe we will cross paths there, I'm going on the 16th of January for a week, my brother will be there for two :D

We are here now. James is a great person but we got better prices with Alvwyn from Dova tours. He's also in the same plaza as James
