Travel Tips from people who've been to Bavaro
My family and I just returned from Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We spent a week at the Bavaro Princess. I would defiently recommend bringing stomach medicine of all kinds. We had Montazumas revenge and it was awful!!! It must have something to do with the change in diet and the water. On a good note we went ziplining with Canopy Adventures and LOVED it! The scenery is absolutely beautiful and the ziplines are long and fast! We went to Sonoa Island which wasn't as good as I heard it was. All we did once on the island was relax and swim in the ocean. The beach was covered in seaweed and the ground was rocky. I wouldn't recommend this excursion. One thing I would highly suggest would be the swimming with the nurse sharks and stingrays! This is a once in a lifetime thing and it was so great! I had so much fun and it wasn't scary at all. Just remember it is legal for women to be on the beach topless and when shopping you must haggle. Other bits of advice: take motion sickness pills because travel to and from your hotel most roads aren't paved, you can use U.S. money, you don't have to exchange it for the local currency, get the all-inclusive package at your hotel it more than pays for itself and this will save you tons of money. Book any excursions through your hotel, they may be able to get you a discount and it is safer this way. The locals are nice but persistant. The most common language spoken is Spanish, but some do know English and French. At the Bavaro Princess there was a casino named The Tower. It is much like a smaller version of Vegas. It was fun and they take U.S. currency. All in all I would recommend going to Dominican at least once. It is very beautiful and i had a great time!

Bavaro is the town where the most of fancy resorts are located in Dominican Republic, commonly referred as Punta Cana, it is not the real location of Punta Cana. The town has nothing to offer besides the hotels if you're around you'd better take a look to Higuey where you'll find the Alta Gracia church, this city has a bit more of Dominican taste.

The long beach with blue water is beautiful. A hotel tip of mine is: "Iberostar Bavaro" or the "Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro" an adults-only hotel. The entertainment is really good, the people are really nice, and the food is exoctic and perfect. There are also discos.
Only recommendable!
