Vaca w/ our best friends in May, 2 couples, No kids, Dominican Republic?

Jump to last reply

We have never been to the Caribbean and we do want the AI experience. We are all in our early 30's and plan to relax and have cocktails on the beach daily. We like some nightlife. My husband is in the military, so Mexico is out.... Not allowed to travel there right now.

We have heard good things from 2 sets of friends who recently honeymooned in DR (Secrets and Excellence). But I am seeing very mixed reviews on DR online.
We would like:

1. Under $4300.00 total per couple (incl airfare)
2. 8 hours or less total travel time to our destination (from Arkansas)
3. Luxurious, updated AI accomodations
4. Adults only
5. Excursions available (guys will want to rent a boat or jeep or something probably)
6. Beautiful beaches (Isn't this a given in the Caribbean?)

** I am worried about the mosquitoes in DR in May. I hate mosquitoes and really want to be able to sit on the beach or our patio at night. We can handle some mosquitoes, but some of the reviews I've read said mosquitoes ruined their trip!
**I read that Aruba was really the only island w/ no mosquitoes. But the winds there are fierce. That doesn't sound good either.

Any help/advice is appreciated!

Thanks for your help in advance!!!!!
