Things to do off resort
Save

Hello all and TIA! We are set to arrive May 18th, staying at Hideaway RPC. We had been going back and forth on whether or not to do the excursions, and the ongoing alcohol issues have made my mind up for me as a "No". We do plan on exploring the other Royaltons, but hubby likes to explore a bit (and drink!) LOL. So I am wondering what we might find to do possibly one day? He also likes Black Jack, so we were planning on checking out Hard Rock Casino for an afternoon. Are there any other safe things we can do off resort, while still enjoying a safe cocktail? And do we need to purchase a pass for Hard Rock or is it a pay as you go type of thing? Thank you all in advance!

First off, you can most certainly enjoy a "safe" cocktail off a resort. Thousands of us Expats do it daily. Too bad that you will not experience the Dominican Republic due to a precautionary law temporarily put into place. There is so much more to see and do that does not involve alcohol.

Punta Cana Mike, I have no doubt there is more to do and see. And that there are places to safely have a cocktail. I have never been to PC, which is why I'm asking. I'd rather avoid the drama that is currently happening with alcohol and excursions, so suggestions would be helpful as to WHAT to do and see. Not trying to offend or be afraid, just wanting to make the most of a 6 day trip.

Laurel A I grew up in Parma! Check out Punta Cana Mike's website for tour info. We really enjoyed the tour to the city, checking out a beautiful beach, watching magnificent hands rolling cigars, etc.

If you are going to the Hard Rock Casino on Arrival just go to the reception and they will give you a wristband permitting you entry into the Casino / Drinks all complimentary as long as you are playing.... Enjoy
