If you’re wondering if you should stay in an AirBnB in the Dominican Republic – this post is just for you! I’m going to share with you my entire experience staying in Punta Cana!
I’m Candace Junée, and if you didn’t already know, I absolutely love traveling. I love traveling so much that I picked up and moved to Mexico in 2021 for 4 months.
But first… take a look at my Punta Cana mini vlog of my experience! I spent only $500 for a 5-Day stay at an AirBnB. Take a look at this video below to see what $500 got me for a week in the DR.
If you didn’t bother watching the video, I show you how I spent $500 on my AirBnB in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for five days. And of course, I’m gonna share the pros and cons of my experience.
I chose to go with an Airbnb and I usually travel and stay in Airbnbs because it allows me to experience the place as I want to experience it not feel like I’m in this resort feel.
I really enjoyed this Airbnb because it was really nicely decorated.
The host was pretty cool. There were a few things that I wasn’t really used to. in the DR. But one really great thing about this particular space is that it was steps away from the pool and this is just one of the 3 pools that this particular AirBNB has.
And of course, if you have a group, like, there’s lots of functional space. So I was the only one here for $500, but if you imagine splitting this with a friend, you know, it’s super cheap for the week.
But I like that it was nicely decorated. Like I said, there are some things in Punta Cana that I wasn’t familiar with, like, having to pay for electricity every day, but it ended up turning out pretty fine because I only paid $20 for electricity in total for the five days.
But the other really cool thing about this particular space was that it’s steps away from the beach, as well, and it’s literally gorgeous. Like, the entire property is beautiful. It’s pretty quiet. And the security staff is really, really nice.
(This is my experience at one AirBnB, but other areas may be different.) One of the cons of traveling during Seaweed season to Punta Cana is Seaweed is literally all up on the beach. So that’s one of the big cons of going with Airbnb. From what I’ve heard, the hotels and resorts typically clean the seaweed off of the beach, but this Airbnb didn’t necessarily do that.
I really enjoyed this place, but if I went to Punta Cana again, I would probably just do an all-inclusive resort, but this was a pretty cool experience and this view was priceless.
Alright, I know you’re wondering what exact Dominican Republic AirBnB location I stayed at… but don’t worry, I am going to share the link!
I really hope you enjoy your experience if you choose to stay there!
