Today is actually our last day of our trip.

We didn't do anything interesting today, however, we did have an amazing dinner at the end of the day. We went to the spa, and we to the sauna.

Shopping is really important, the guide and the man from the airport told us not to go the Haitian's stalls at the end of the beach because ...

Adiós Amigos

Made tons of friends, had tons of fun. I did not really want to leave. But I guess I have to. The morning of, I packed my bag and was ready to leave. Brought our bags to the front of the lobby waiting to be picked up by our travel bus.

Spoke to my parents after breakfast, and guess what our flight is delayed because there was a horrible snow storm in Toronto on the day of our departure. So our flight was delayed till 8 PM. That wasn't that bad, so we ...

Today, my boyfriend and I went to the Dolphin Explorer adventure. It is amazing, I got to swim with the dolphins, it was only 4 hours. I wished we got to spend more time with the dolphins. But it was really short. Included in the Dolphin Explorer was the bird show, and ...

... can eat lunch. Amazing! I was so full after every meal to the point where when I got back home, I felt like I didn't need to eat for days.

So the trip consists of visiting a local school, if you like you could bring notebooks or any other school supplies. But try not to bring money, it is really hard to split the money for all 10 children because their currency is low compared to American and European dollars. But school supplies everyone could benefit from.

... what the websites say, they do scare you. It really isn't that bad. So my boyfriend and I signed up for two events.

Dolphin Explorer and the Outback Trip. I am a fan of learning about other people's culture and learning about their way of life. I found this Outback Trip is really interesting, it did give us a hands on experience of the Dominican's way of life, the tour guide also talks about the island, how ...

    Great Family Vacation

    from

    We choose the Gran Bahia Principe Bavaro for a vacation with our son, daughter in law and two grandsons ages 6 and 4. The trip was long and the children were amazing travellers. When we arrived at the resort we were given great service as they really do tend to people travelling with children first. The check in and trolly ride to our room was very smooth. We arrived in the evening, and did not think to check to see when the buffets closed. Unfortunately we did miss out and had to go to the only place open after 11 pm. That was a hamburger place in the back corner of the Pueblo Principe shopping center. It was not the greatest meal, and not a good introduction to the resort. But we were tired, and at least the kids got to eat something before they went to bed.

    Good and bad

    My wife and I stayed at this hotel for the week of Jan 26th/08. We travelled with 3 other couples. First of all we arrived at the hotel at 11 PM that night. The workers unloaded the luggage off the bus, and asked us to pick our bags out. It was so dark behind the bus, that I couldn't tell one piece of luggage from another, with my old eyes. There was no air canada rep there to greet us, so we had no idea where to go. We went to the front desk, and they directed us to another room where this huge party of people were congregating, we were there a while and found out we didn't belong there. Went back to the front desk, and this time they helped us? Our travel agent didn't book us as wanting to stay close together, each couples room not being far from the other. It was nice of the resort to upgrade us to the Ambar section, to keep us together, but it still took us a while for the trolly operator to get us all to our rooms. We were totally lost that first night, and the maps they gave us didn't even have the Ambar section on it. Finally we got to our rooms, and the rooms were beautiful. King size canopy beds, whirlpool tub, etc. Our rooms were also fairly close to the beach which was nice. The only problem is that our rooms were at least a 10 minute walk from the main buffet ( off the lobby ) which was the only main buffet we could eat at, because even though our rooms were upgraded our bracelets weren't, meaning we could not eat at the ambar buffet. So you had to either walk, or wait for a trolly. We didn't find the trolly operators that eager to please when it came to rides. Many of them spent most of their time talking to other employees, of talking on their cell phones, rather than ensuring the guests were taken care of. Also, good luck finding a ride late at night coming back from the disco. The beach was nice, and the water got deep pretty fast. It was crowded the week we were there, which made it hard to find chairs at the beach. Impossible to get chairs at the pool, unless you got them early. The grounds were beautiful, and the maids were fair. Sometimes we didn't get towels replaced. Also it rained one night, and we had quite a puddle in our room. Yes the roof leaked, and dripped just inside our door. The room service was free, and it was nice to get personal pizza's at 3 in the morning, after bar closing. Also, having a continental breakfast delivered in the morning, eliminated the need to waste time travelling to, and eating at the main buffet in the mornings, giving more time at the beach. We enjoyed the french a la carte, and the japanese one, but the Brazilian BBQ was just the beach buffets, with the waiters delivering squewers of meat to the table. The beach buffets were OK. Not a huge selection, but most of it was good. I went parasailing on the last day with my best bud, and that was fun.

    Amazing Trip!

    We stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe in the Premiere section from February 4-11, 2008. I was very impressed with this resort!
