What people are saying about Punta Cana

We had a fabulous time doing the duel trip or Zipline and monkey land tour. Transportation picked us up right at our hotel and got to the park at a reasonable time. The Zip lines were great, 12 total! (Some high and long others short and quick). Our guides name was Melvin-he was wonderful. Very enthusiastic, energetic, funny, and knowledgeable. After ziplining some of the other guides help describe some local products which you get to try and buy some souvenirs if you want. The last part of the day was our favorite, the enclosure with the small monkeys was awesome! They jump and crawl all over you. You have lots of time in the large area with them (probably 45 minutes!) and you get to take your own pictures and videos. The guides take your picture with a beautiful backdrop for a small charge. All in all this was a great day- highly recommend!!

Such a wonderful day … our guide was Kevin , really kind and lots of knowledge and the most important part really funny . Very organised activity . Went and did the zip lines first, then the plantation and monkeys at the end . It’s a must do activity !! Thank you guys

The excursion was very nice, but the organization for the departure was completely shoddy. We changed buses three times before heading for the boat.

So helpful very good English and made us feel safe and comfortable after a 9 hr flight recommend highly rather than a coach

great service, great personal, thank you for making everything easy
