WE rented a taxi for the day and we went to a private ranch so we could do some mountain Horseback riding it was great for a good price.

Jungle trek, was 11/2 mile trek to get to meeting point. we waited 45 minutes for 1 coupe couple , never showed. Nice guide, nice new bus. Trek was about 2 miles to pitiful waterfall, and pooled water, muddy where you could swim, climb ladder and slide or jump into water....passed. Guide showed us many different fruits which we tasted and differnt trees and leaves that they made medicine out of. Extremely rough rock paths, wished I had worn heavy sneakers instead of water shoes.... feet were beat up and could have easily sprained an ankle in rocks. $45 BBQ lunch, everyone passed. Rum punch on bus back....30 minute bus ride each way, most under construction and rough roads....spilled my PUNCH! Read Less

Amber Cove is a great place to walk around, use the wifi and spend some relaxing time at the pool and swim up bar. I wish HAL would tell more people about the free facilities. We met several folks who had no idea what was offered.

Beautiful area, we went to Playa Bachata for the day, walkable from the port, approx. $37 pp for the day, food, drink , beach and pools. There is no beach at the cruisedock area, just a large pool area with chairs.

we took an excursion with a third party operator of the 27 waterfalls. My wife and I did I think the 13 waterfalls, which was actually almost all of the way up as the 27 waterfalls wasn't that much further apparently and had just a bunch of smaller ones. There were some really high jumps and before jumping it was pretty freaky but it was very memorable and fun. I did end up with a sore bottom after this excursion though. Read Less

This was an easy port day as you just walk off the ship and they have a giant pool with water slides and a lazy river and loungers. The only thing they charged for was zip lining. I didnt go but heard it was $20 was an all day pass.

Waterfall at Danajuga was hard and scary. Thrill seekers will love this. Long hike up, up, up. Rock water slides and platforms into the water 20 ft below.

I almost didn't want to get off but I am so glad we did. This port is wonderful. So up to date and wonderful for families with children. My beau went zip-lining and I had my hair braided. Hair braids was $17 and zip-lining was $20 ... Read More
I almost didn't want to get off but I am so glad we did. This port is wonderful. So up to date and wonderful for families with children. My beau went zip-lining and I had my hair braided. Hair braids was $17 and zip-lining was $20 for all day long. The port was not crowded since a Carnival ship had gotten there and decided the seas were to rough and changed their mind about docking and went onto somewhere else. Sorry for what they missed but LUCKY US! Read Less

View from the ship was beautiful. Did the Panoramic City Tour booked through HAL. Glad we did it - if you stay in the cruise ship center, you will not really see the culture of the Dominican Republic.

During this port, we did not take excursion with the ship. Instead we walked outside the Amber Cove gate and took a taxi to the 27 water falls. The cab ride last year cost of 50$ for the day. This year it was 90$ but we had two additional people. The waterfalls tour through the cruise cost 130$ per person. It cost us 27$ per person with a meal included. I would highly recommend the waterfalls, but on your own. Read Less

Didn't care for the excursion as it wasn't described right by the shore excursion representative.
