I assume you are looking at a package?

Westjet Vacations no longer offers complimentary checked bags (so it will be $60/per bag roundtrip)

I would stay away from this resort in La Romana for now there have been a few incidents recently and I can’t confidently say the hotel has responded well. ...also keep in mind I don’t believe they are offering direct service to La Romana in the summer (so you will land in Punta Cana and have over an hour commute).

Natura Park Resort is need of a Reno- and is a 3.5* at best. Mixed crowd from party atmosphere to senior clientele.

Given I’m aware of roughly what these two resorts are being sold at right now - I would look at the Impressive Punta Cana which is newer and a solid 4* (other options would be RIU Bambu or Grand Memories Splash/Grand Memories Punta Cana if you can catch them on a sale- they are 4.5* -5* and have a ton of kids activities including a full waterpark).

Pretty much every website will have the same prices if you want to deal with strictly Canadian company (staff /call centres all in Canada) look at (no specific order)
Sell Off Vacations - Itravel - Trip central - Red Tag
^they may have additional discounts off the website rate

^^Whatever you see on WestjetVacations.com & aircanadavacations.com will be the same on the websites above ^^
