So, last week my inlaws from Florida were visiting us, and during casual conversation, my mother in law says "why don't you drive down, drop off the kids for a week, and the two of you can take a vacation somewhere" (While my father in law was shooting her nasty looks with a glazed confused look in his eyes, I was working on having her re-submit the offer in writing. One day and 70,000 frequent flyer miles later, before my father in law had the chance to realize what had just happened, all arrangements were finalized.)
So, it turns out we will be going to Punta Cana in October. I was wondering if anyone has any information on takeing a Plantation/Factory tour in the DR. From what I understand, the nearest factories are a couple hours from Punta Cana, but I am considering checking it out. Are tours offered at the Fuente Factory? Does anyone have any experience with this at all?
