Every day many people ask about Punta Cana through our social networks and there is a question that is always the same. Should I Book My Excursions Online or Once I Arrive in Punta Cana? While the answer is very clear to us it’s somewhat hard to answer because we offer Punta Cana excursions online and it feels like we’re trying to sell you on the idea of buying online from us. Honestly, We all know that when we plan things ahead of time we make sure that there will not be a surprise that can complicate our precious vacations.
Here are 5 Reasons Why You Should Book Before You Arrive.
1. Excursions Sell Out
Popular excursions like Hoyo Azul, zip-lining, highly-rated Saona Island tour and Dune Buggy adventures will sell out quickly. The same goes for most excursions, especially during the busy season. Don’t miss out on an unforgettable experience because you waited until you arrived to look at excursions only to find out that your desired date is no longer available.
2. You Can Pre-Pay and Save some Money
Pre-booking your excursions is yet another way to minimize your expenses by purchasing them before you arrive. Most tours in Punta Cana offer discounted prices if you book online ahead of time. These discounts can range from 5% up to 10%. This way, you’re not skimping on drinks or souvenirs in order to squeeze excursions into your budget because you already took care of them ahead of time.
3. May Require Outside Transportation
Sometimes, excursions require transportation outside of the Punta Cana resort area. Maybe you’re participating in an excursion that takes place several hours away. The point is, there are the types of excursions that you want to pre-book to make sure your spot is solidified.
4. Allows for Research
Booking ahead gives you time to research the excursions you are purchasing, from home. Allowing you to read other tourists’ reviews, see social media posts, and determine if the excursions you’re looking to match your needs.
5. Know What to Pack
Pre-booking excursions also come in handy for when it’s time to pack. It will help you decide whether you should bring your own water shoes or snorkel gear, or if it will be available to rent where you’re going. Likewise, if booking something like zip-lining you’ll probably need a pair of tennis shoes or closed-toe shoes. Be sure to read the descriptions and understand everything your excursion involves.
