    I’m bumping this for you 🙂 I voted Cancun, but extra restaraunts is worth a lot at an all inclusive for me, I tend to pick all inclusive vacations based upon restaraunts and options. But I think either will be amazing!

    I chose Cancun. You can always do a horseback riding tour from an independent tour company.

    Fiance and I booked our Honeymoon in at Dreams La Romana in the DR. I know they have a LOT of bars and restaurants at the all-inclusive resort, and the water is a little more typical “Carribean.” Not sure if you know about La Romana, but it seems to combine the aspects you like of each into one! (Sorry to get you off track if you were set between these two).

    I’ve stayed at the Excellence Riviera Cancun; if you’d like any info, let me know. We were there for 2 weeks in June 2009.

    One thing I would point out is that it isn’t actually in Cancun; it’s a taxi-ride away, around $25 each way to the Hotel Zone/bars, if I remember right.

    If you want to be in Cancun itself, look at the Royal Cancun, and Le Blanc (Le Blanc is pricey though).

    I vote the Dominican. If you both have been to mexico before, it would be great to see something new together for the first time. An extra bar doesn’t seem like that much of a perk to me.

    DR for sure! You’ve already been to Mexico, and as a fellow horsewoman myself, DR wins hands down!

    I’d say Punta Cana, especially if you and for Fiance have been to Mexico.  (I have to admit I might be a bit biased, as my parents are from Dominican Republic lol)  But putting that to the side, I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana for a possible destination wedding and they’re gorgeous.  So far have looked at Dreams Punta Cana and Melia Caribe. Good luck deciding!

    I’ve been to both and I voted DR. My fiance and I went to Punta Cana DR in May this year (where he proposed) and it was amazing! Since its your honeymoon you should go somewhere you guys haven’t been before. With either choice you will have a great time because Cancun is awesome too and I love the excellence resorts! 🙂
