Tours

All-inclusive resorts have their own tour desks, and if you're staying in a resort, you can reliably use the company that runs the tour desk. It makes sense to use your hotel's tour operator unless you hear negative comments from other guests or the company doesn't offer the tour you prefer. The primary tour operator on the Southeast Coast is Tropical Tours (with headquarters at Casa de Campo in La Romana), whose prices are even less than some non-pros and some cruise-ship excursions. Their vans are new or nearly new and well maintained. Also, most of their staff speaks English as well as other languages. They can take you on a tour of Santo Domingo, to caves, on outback safaris, zip lining, or even out to a ballgame. The company also operates boat tours to the islands and provides transfers to the three area airports.

Information

Tropical Tours. The primary tour operator on the Southeast Coast is Tropical Tours (with headquarters at Casa de Campo in La Romana), whose prices are even less than some non-pros and some cruise-ship excursions. Their vans are new or nearly new and well-maintained. Also, most of their staff speaks English as well as other languages. They can take you on a tour of Santo Domingo, and to fascinating caves. Although most water-based excursions (outback safaris and zip lining too) now go through the concierges at Casa de Campo, they do have a new trip to the Marineaquarium and Reef Explorer where brave-hearts can swim with the sharks. The company also provides transfers to Las Americas and Punta Cana International Airports; $140 for 1–4 persons or a mere $28 per person for 5 or more. Casa de Campo, La Romana, 22000. 809/523–2029 or 809/523–2028. tropicaltoursromana.com.do.
