Excursions in the Dominican Republic

The resorts organize numerous activities for all ages on a daily basis. The representatives of the travel organisations also offer many excursions. Remember, trips booked through the Internet or from local tour operators outside the resort are up to 50% cheaper than in the resort (the travel organisations require 35-50% commission!). If you book directly with the provider of the tour, it can be much cheaper and you will have more choice.
