|HiI would like to take my wife on a trip where we can do some snorkeling. We have never traveled until last year we went on a cruise. She has never snorkeled before. We are a couple in our 50’s.I have been trying to read as much as possible but still at a loss of where to go. I was wondering which would be best for a quiet vacation where we can do a couple snorkeling excursions. I have it narrowed down between Riviera Maya and Punta Cana.Any help would be appreciated especially if somebody has been to both places. We are planning for Feb or March so we still have some time to decide.Thanks
|Your much better off going to Mexico IMO….I was not impressed with the snorkeling or the diving in the Dominican.Punta Cana does not sit in the Caribbean, it is in the Atlantic…I think you would be extremely happy staying in R.M
|wossa Guest|| Your much better off going to Mexico IMO….I was not impressed with the snorkeling or the diving in the Dominican. Hey Peteyork
I would definitely agree with the Dawg…
We dove the Dominican this year and it was terrible……Mexico is so much better for seeing marine life etc…..you’ll have a blast !!
I would pick the beaches of the Dominican Republic over the Riviera Maya easily. As for the diving, the last couple of opinions may be correct.
|You will spend a little more to go to Mexico, but it is worth every penny. Look for a smaller resort (if you want quiet), and you should be fine. There are lots of places to pick from, so enjoy the hunt, it’s a "gooder" way to get your vaction started. Good luck….
