    Was there for my weddingmoon in 2011, was a lot of fun. Definitely get out to do some excursions. We visited coffee, sugar, cocoa, tobacco plantations. All very touristy but was still a nice break from laying around the pool listening to corny music all day.

    If you want to go into the city, skip the tours. Hire a reputable cab for the day. cost only a few bucks more than a tour and you get a private driver. Ours was awesome, took us all around and was a cool dude. We went down into the local market. I bought two 2-ft long cinnamon sticks for 50cents...shits expensive here...haha

    The dune-buggy/go cart tour was fun. I would do that again as well. The zipline thing was ok, nothing special.

    Do the go cart tour that ends up at the blue hole (swimming hole) at the end. It was pretty awesome

    I've been but the extent of my exploring was only walking the beach a few miles in each direction. Its a nice place, but everyone is hungry for tips/money, unlike in Mexico where they don't usually ask, they are a aggressive asking for $$.

    Pummeled or Puerto Rico'd? I got the feeling that it wasn't any worse than other hurricanes. Hoping it's back to normal before February
