    Default La Romana Dive,Hotel,fun...Help

    Hi, everyone. Really like the dr1.com seems very open. I am looking for acomidations in La Romana, for 2 weeks in July. Looking to scuba and see the land, it will be my first trip to DR. I don't want to spend all my money on a high price hotel, can you lead me in the right direction for a place to stay. Also I have read that baseball is all over the Island so I was planning on bringing some with me for the kids is this also a good idea. Thanks for your time, keep the good work on this site.

    Check out the all inclusive hotels in the Bayahibe/La Romana area. If you have plans to travel with the kids, there is no better choice than an all inclusive hotel.

    There are many small non- all inclusive hotels in Bayahibe town. Check them out, one by one, until you find one that is good enough for you. Overall, the Bayahibe area is a good one for diving.

    theres hotel olympio and hotel fran right next door that are decent hotels for cheap. They are on the main drag in La Romana. Bayahibe is about a 1/2 hr drive from the hotel. then there is Catilina i think is how its spelled, that is a private island you can do scuba. We did last year but went on our own little motor boat. Don't know where you would go to catch a ride over there but im sure you can somewhere. Watch out for the agua vivo tho...stung the crap out of my back when i was snorkeling boy that didn't feel too good!!

    Better to stay in Bayahibe, La Romana is too far away from the snorkeling. In Bayahibe you can catch a boat to Catalina, Saona, or even the sunken ships and diving areas off Dominicus beach area. Also visit the Dominicus/Laguna Blue Flag beach with public access between Dominicus Palace and Iberostar Hacienda hotels.

    Default keep it comeing

    WOW, These are great ideas, and Bayhaibie is were I would like to find myself. I have read the diving in this area is the best around. Also I have found that renting a suv for travel is not a great idea becouse of YOU crazy Dominican drivers, LOL is this as true as I have been reading, Id like to hit some of the other areas in the Dominican Republic. Does anyone have a contact number for these hotels, also I am trying to leard spanish, we will see how that goes. I have Aquwa down so far.LOL
    Thanks again everyone for all the help

    If you really want to see the country, driving is highly recommended. Just be sure to not leave anything that you value inside the car, to purchase the extra insurance or have extra insurance on your credit card, and to not drive at night. You might want to check out Boca de Yuma, also that is further east, but before you get to the Punta Cana area.

    Reservations will not be necessary if you are traveling mid week as most non all inclusive hotels cater to the locals and independent travelers and you should find a place to stay. Like that you can check them out and decide. Go traveling day by day.

    Dolores,audboogie.
    Thanks for the help, if travel is this hard maybe staying of the road and flying to different areas is the way to go until I am traveling with a group.
    Are their any Habanas in the Bayahibe are. Looks like I will have to put off till July. Will or should I expect alot of rain, its not an issue if they will still take me out diving, but on days when they will not. well you understand.
    thanks again

    Villa Iguana in Bayahibe is the place that I've espyed as the one with the most things that I'm looking for. They cater a lot to Europeans, not just locals and you may have to make a reservation. They have a number of options for rooms too: a great penthouse with private pool and air conditioning to a suite with kitchen facililties to a room with a fan! The owners are also knowledgeable about the dive operations in the area, being past owners of one. Check them out at http://www.villaiguana.de/e_iguana.htm

    Don't know if it's what you're looking for though...
