Booking was great! But my daughter was asked to change flights when she got in the airport for 7am flight. The British airline told her she did not have a ticket from Glasgow to London , they did not let her board at all. She is still in Glasgow even she had packed everything and returned her apartment keys. At this time, she was told she can leave on May 27th. How does she know the same thing would not happen again on May 27th? She had bad experience with this trip. Would you be able to help her to make sure she can board on 5/27? I am her Mother, I booked the round trip flights. She did not have any troubles from Nashville to Glasgow. But she is past due to come back. Please help her to get back ASAP. Thank you so much!

I didn't like anything and would probably never fly on Spirit again. I cannot blame anything on the crew because they did their best given their limitations. Boarding was late and poor. Airplane lacked any modern facility (USB, No monitors, etc.) - it looked old & outdated. Spirit Airlines charge lower to bait potential travelers. Worst they do not answer telephone calls and if they do, only give excuses. They are crooks; thieves.

      How to travel around Punta Cana

      The best way to get around Punta Cana is definitely on foot. Many tourists don’t stray far from their all-inclusive resorts, perhaps wandering up and down the beach to the adjacent resorts. If you want to explore further, taxis are easily arranged by your concierge, or you could brave the bus system, which is unreliable, to say the least. Here is some more information about modes of transport around Punta Cana.

      Taxis

      You can have the concierge call you a taxi, or walk down the road to the local taxi stand and arrange it yourself, which will be cheaper. In either case, you will be charged a flat rate, negotiated prior to getting in the car.

      Car rentals

      If you want to explore the Dominican Republic on your own, you can rent a car, but be warned, drivers in this country treat traffic rules as though they were just suggestions! Signage is often poor, reckless driving is the norm, and within Punta Cana, the traffic is often gridlocked.

      Best things to do and see in Punta Cana

      Things to do and places of interest in Punta Cana

      With nearby beaches fronting both the Atlantic ocean and the Caribbean sea, Punta Cana is for those who love the surf, sand and sun. With resorts lined up and down the beaches, you’re never lacking for entertainment. Here are a few ideas for your sunny getaway.

      • Get your toes in the sand on Bavaro Beach, where you’ll find 6 miles of sandy beach and nearby amenities such as bars, restaurants and shopping. The people-watching here is always interesting too!
      • Visit the Isla Saona, which is a government protected nature reserve, so the white sand beaches and palm trees are unspoiled by tourist trappings. Many resorts offer excursions here, with ferry tickets and a meal to go.
      • If you need a break from the beach, take a Super Truck Safari. See the countryside from atop one of these gigantic vehicles, stopping to visit school children (depending on the time of year) and see the church of Our Lady of La Altagracia. On this excursion you’ll also enjoy a horseback ride and an authentic Dominican lunch.
      • For the adventurous, try zip lining. The Zip line Canopy tour will have you sliding down 15 platforms and 8 cable lines at treetop height across beautiful open valleys, culminating in a ride on a 2,500-foot cable. That’s about 7 blocks long!
      • Enjoy a catamaran snorkeling tour. Hispaniola Aquatic Tours gives private and semi-private four-hour catamaran excursions to famous local dive sites. Your day will include drinks, a meal, transport to and from your hotel, snorkeling equipment and professional photos so you can remember your experience.
      • Explore the Hoyo Azul (blue hole) in Scape Park, a natural sinkhole filled with crystal-clear water. This spectacular lagoon sits at the foot of a 200-foot high cliff, and the turquoise waters have a depth of over 120 feet at their deepest.

      Tips and tricks for visiting Punta Cana

      When you visit the Dominican Republic, you are required to purchase a tourist card for $10.00 USD. You can do so at the airport after you land, but there is often a long line of tourists doing the same thing. You can save yourself some time by purchasing your card online before you come.

      If you plan to stay within the resort area, as many visitors do, there is no need to convert your US dollars into pesos. Almost everyone happily accepts US dollars as payment, including tips and excursions. It’s a good idea to bring a bunch of small bills, for convenience when tipping and buying small items.

      The Dominican Republic is economically disadvantaged, so theft can be a problem. Use common sense and be observant outside of the resort area. Don’t expect your valuables to be safe within a locked vehicle.
