    Default Young travellers travelling to Bavaro

    Hi Everyone,

    Great online community and very informative. I was hoping to get some advice from you all. We are a group of 10 guys coming to Bavaro for a bachelor party. We will be staying in the Cocotal Golf course. I understand that many changes have happend since some of the previous posts regarding local attractions.

    We are looking for local bars that are popular and budget local eats in or around Bavaro (seafood preferred). Also, we are looking for nightclubs that are popular and what days they are best to visit.

    Since it is a bachelor party we are looking for recommendations for a strip club in the area (strictly dancing) to comply with customary bachelor party activities.

    All recommendations welcome. Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, can't give you any specifics on the Bavaro area. I am sure others will but please, please remember you will not be in Kansas anymore. No problem having fun but when you have alcohol and other things into the mix and you are bar hopping in a foreign country things can quickly go the wrong way. Watch each others back and try to use some common sense. The Domincan police are not overly tolerant to "gringos" who become public nussances. Have a lot of fun but just keep this in mind. Not trying to be a downer just don't consider the DR as one big strip club.

    Popular party places in Punta Cana are: Coco Bongo (in Downtown Punta Cana), Imagine (discotheque in a cave), Mangú and Pachá (Riu hotels).

    I would stay away from seeking out a "stripper bar," as advised by LTSteve above.

    Feel free to send me a DM when you get to 10 posts regarding the night life.

    Across from the beach side entrance of Cocotal is the Palma Real Mall, it is within walking distance from the Golf Suites. There are eats, Hard Rock Cafe, Outback Steak House, Pizza joint, and others. There is shopping at big name vendors but at tourist victim prices. Good area to get your feet wet and explore when first arriving.

    You would have to travel by taxi or other to get to the bars and nightclubs. Other posters will have recommendations for those.

    Follow LTSteve's advice: "you will not be in Kansas anymore"

    Have a good time.


    Regards,

    PJT

    Hard Rock is not in Palma Real any more. They moved to Blue Mall.

    I agree with everything that was said above. I just came back from there spending roughly 10 days in DR. Not a place I would come to for "tittie bars". Keep in mind that just about every security guard sports a pistol grip shotgun and very few people speak fluent English.

    I agree with all the posts as well. We will be of course be sensible in the foreign country (many of us have travelled to cancun/varadero/S.America/Panama for events). We heard great things about the night life in Punta Cana, but so far no one has suggested any places to check out.

    I believe poster said he wanted local eats. Those hardly classify. cocobongos is a ripoff IMO; a cheesy cruise ship type of show. Is you intend to go, take plenty $$.
    There is a "strip club" of sorts (can't remember where), but when I went with gf a couple of years ago, it seemed pretty lame, and we left within minutes. Steve's bar, while not a strip club, can be pretty entertaining at times.
    For seafood, I would try the shacks at Macao Beach.
    Even though the Bavaro/PC area appears relatively tame, use common sense and be safe.

    I haven't heard that Punta Cana is renowned for its nightlife. Maybe ask those who told you it was, where you should go.
