We booked this day long excursion from a booking agent T our hotel in Punta Cana. He failed to mention that it was a 2+ hour drive to get on the boat....including an hour of riding around to other resorts picking up people. Stopped at a junky souvenir stand on the way only to get nagged constantly to buy something. Catamaran trip was nice but way too long circling the island and trying to get tourists drunk on cheap rum. At the end one of the mates came around putting doo rags on everyone's head then a few minutes later asking for $10 for hat. The food on the island was mediocre at best. The only reason I gave this trip 2 stars was because the beach is gorgeous, but don't waste your time or money on this trip...the ret of the beaches at punta Cana are just as pretty. The constant nagging to buy something else really gets old in this country.
