Flying from BWI to Punta Cana? Here is what you can expect!

One of our Apple Vacations Sales Reps James Reese flew down to Punta Cana to do some hotel site inspections. I asked him to tell me all about it and here are the highlights!

I caught the Apple Vacations Charter on Airtran out of BWI. Check-in at Airtran was very smooth and very quick! I was approached by Carol, one of our BWI Airport Reps, as soon as I walked up to the Airtran counter. Carol made sure I had luggage tags, the Emergency Contact slip and double-checked that I was on the Apple Vacations manifest.

After being checked in, she directed me towards the security line — Quick and Simple! The Airtran flight-crew were fantastic! They were engaging, friendly and extremely courteous. The plane itself was modern and clean. Couldn’t have asked for a better flight! When we got the Punta Cana Airport I got my $10 Tourist Card and went straight through Immigrations — VERY FAST! Our luggage came out immediately — no wait.

There is a “Big GIANT Fan” in Baggage Claim that kept us cool! Funny — people are taking pictures of the fan now. Must be one of the new “sites” to see in Punta Cana!

After telling many people that I didn’t need assistance with my luggage, I walked over to Amstar and was promptly directed to my transfer bus. The driver had water and a cool towel waiting for me — NICE! The bus was clean and cool. Received a brief history of the island in route to my hotel. Amstar does such a great job!

Keep checking back for hotel reviews!
