First time in Punta Cana

First time in Punta Cana

Hello all! I have a few questions.

What is the weather like in mid December? And what is there to do around the Majestic Colonial resort? Is the flea market near by? And what is the best transportation from the airport to the resort?

Thank you! =)

Not sure of the weather and not sure about the transportation (our travel agent always set it up but I know others on this forum set it up themselves) but yes there is a flea market right outside of the front entrance to the Colonial. You can walk to it from the resort. Its on the right hand side as you leave the entrance of the resort.

As far as things to do around the Colonial, not much other than the beach (which is great) and you can walk over and explore their other 2 resorts next door (Elegance and Colonial). But when you get to the resort there will be an opportunity to set up excursions to go off the resort.

The weather should be fine in December. You should have a look at Dominican Plus for private transfers. Very reliable and cheaper than taxis.

Private saves you $5 ... taxi's everywhere at airport and $40 one way posted over head as you exit the airport. Scroll up and look under things to do .. flea market in front is dollar store stuff. You can walk the beach or go out front and walk beside the roads. The reason why the Dominican ppl are walking on the other side of the road is because its the shady side..lol

Weather is nice enough to go swimming. We like taking a taxi since it is the easiest and fastest way to get to your resort.
