We will see you on that flight. I am taking my mom to Melia Caribe Tropical. I am so excited, I can't stand waiting any longer!! A plane is a plane really. I find they are all quite cramped. Oh well, I would ride a kite just to get to Punta Cana. LOL!!! Hope the flight is on time, so we land before dark. Always love watching the island descending into Punta Cana.

I was told the same......they had to disembark in the Soo for customs and then head on home. Took about an hour and a bit longer to get home.

It is your travel agents responsibility to tell you about Customs in the Sault.
