We are trying to do some research about excursions in Samana. We have 2 kids (2 and 5) and my parents who will be traveling with us in February on the Pearl. We don't like to do organized excursions with the cruise line because we have found that they cost a lot more and you loose out on time most of them. We called the Hotel Gran Bahia Principe Cayacoa direct and spoke to the front desk about doing a day pass. They said they did them and it wouldn't be a problem for the time we are there. The problem is that the young man I spoke to didn't speak very good english and I don't speak spanish so some of the conversation was hard to understand. Has anyone ever done this in Samana. We have done the same thing in other ports but have never been to Samana. The guy at the hotel said it would be easy for us to get a taxi at the cruise ship tender area and from the view on the map it should be fairly close to there.We would like to do a day pass at this resort as well. We will be ther the week of 2/13. Did you get anymore info? Do you have the phone number to the resort you could provide to me?

We would like to do a day pass at this resort as well. We will be ther the week of 2/13. Did you get anymore info? Do you have the phone number to the resort you could provide to me?There is a phone number on their web site that I called and the person that I spoke to had very bad English but we were able to communicate somewhat. The number is (809) 538 3131. I have no idea how much it cost to call them but you just have to dial it direct just like you were dialing any other long distance number in the states. This is the US toll free number but they were not very helpful 1-866-282-2442. They just said I needed to talk directly with the hotel. My plan was to call them again right before we left. If you find out anything please let us know. I will be getting emails while we are gone so if you do go and can let us know anything about it after you get back that would be great too. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.

I emailed them yesterday. Thought I might do better in an email as I have alot of difficulty understanding accents. If they do not respond I will call them.I tried emailing several times and never got a response. Let me know if you find anything out.
Never responded to the email....I called and could not understand him....we are there next Wed and have decided to do something else....Goo LuckWhat did you decide on instead? Have a good cruise.
