Spotting in Dominican Republic

Post by PhillyG » Sun Dec 16, 2018 8:32 pm

Hi there,
Am booked th go to Dpmincan Republic later in the year. Am staying at Bavarro, not far from Punta Cana.
Can anyone please advise on spotting at PC and whether it is 'safe' to do so. Are there any good vantage points around the airport.

All comments gratefully received.

Many thanks
Phill

Hi Phill

I can’t help with spotting information at Punta Cana as I only passed through on my way in and out of the Dominican Republic – although the terminal building is unusual and there was a smoking area for departing passengers that overlooked the ramp.

However, when you’re not spotting at the airport, or lounging by the pool, you could check out the DC-6 Disco in the Iberostar Dominicana Hotel in Bavaro which has parts of DC-6B HI-474CT. The nose and some wing bits are in there, or were there a few years ago. Admittedly, it’s not too exciting but after you’ve walked there you can reward yourself with a drink.
