Must eat at:
If you’re tempted beyond the walls of your resort, try Capitan Cook in town for huge roaring grills and excellent lobster by the beach.
Must be there for:
If you’re after sunshine and blue skies without the humidity of mid-summer, travel in the Spring or Autumn for a different perspective on the island.
- It can sometimes be difficult to change your local pesos back into sterling... so change your money (or visit the ATM) little and often rather than in one go.
- You can rent a Segway at the Bavaro Hotel, which, for the princely sum of $30, includes an hour’s hire complete with local guide.
