    I have been a few times in Punta Cana but had never been outside our resort. We did the Higuey City Tour, and it was really good. The countryside house was my favorite part of this excursion. they gave us coffee and chocolate there. The Basilica Cathedral is beautiful. it only takes 5 to 6 hours. 100% recommended.
