Aruba vs Dominican Republic??

Trying to decide on either Aruba or Punta Cana for August or September 2003 vacation. Where is the weather better? What are the prices like? (we were in Aruba last August, so we know their prices). Also, would like to stay somewhere with not a lot of kids. We're leaving our's at home, would like somewhere that's more adult oriented. Thanks

Kathy, in Sept. you run the risk of huricanes. You will be safer in Aruba. Typically Punta Cana is probably more cost efficient. It is off season. I only know of one adult AI in Punta Cana. Secrets Excellence. I have never been though.

The only way to guarantee no kids is to stay at an all inclusive resort such as Sandals Antigua.
You might also consider the quiet Bucuti Resort in Aruba located on an expansive beach.
My travel agent recommends Paradisus Punta Cana in D.R. but no guarantee of how many kids will be there.
Have you also considered the Riviera Maya area in Mexico?
You can get prices for resorts by simply typing out the resorts name and island in Google or Lycos and accessing their website. Also try Where2Stay.com for travelers comments and information.

I have a great recommendation for you! Petite St. Vincent! It is an island and a resort, extremely charming, that part of the world is pretty much out of the bad weather built so August or Sept. should be okay, it has secluded lodgings (individual, spread out cottages) and basically only couples and has been very well rated on this website. Check out their website and request a brochure, you will love it if you want a romantic, weather-safe vacation.
