... decent priced and tasted very good. After that we went and asked the motor taxis to take us to the cigar factory.
(I was very nervous about going on the bikes, especially cause it was the guy driving, then me, then Tarvo behind me all on one bike! After a few minutes though it wasn't so scary. Still I don't think I will be buying one anytime soon, although it might come in handy here in NYC.)
The motor taxi drivers told us okay and drove us to a cigar shop ...

... are really bad quality and not worth what you are paying in terms of what you are getting. I didn't listen, I decided to buy things from there. It was pretty cheap, I didn't spend more than 20 things for 5 items. Some items seems more expensive then I though but it was worth it. It was close and it was alright.

Our dinner ...

... Toronto to Punta Cana. So the pilots had to wait for a plane to arrive in Toronto. So they could fly the plane to come pick us up in Punta Cana.

OMG! So much work for one flight. So our flight was actually a whole day, if you calculate all the time that we spent at the airport and waiting for the plane. So it was about 7 AM when we arrived in Toronto on Sunday.

Sigh! The longest ride every. It felt longer than when I flew to Hong Kong. LOL!

... lion show that I keep calling, seals. LOL! oppzz.

But the rest of the day, I was just chilling with my friends by the beach and doing some of the free activities.

By night fall we had another "special dinner," it was the Mediterranean dinner. It was alright. It had seafood and pasta. Nothing really special.

Today is the outback trip. So our hotel is the last to be picked up for almost all the trips, so we could sleep in and not have to worry about missing our trip. Therefore, we are the last ones to be dropped off at the end of the day.

This outback trip is a whole day trip, I know whole day. It must be boring however, we did a lot of driving and a lot of looking. The trip includes alcohol of course, without alcohol how could we function. LOL! In addition, it also includes an ...

    Great Family Vacation


    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!
