Here are photos of the daily activities and dress code for the week we were there this year. I'm putting the dress code info directly below so you don't have to read the agenda for each day if that's all you're interested in!

  1. What is the dress code? I've seen it on a few sites but no explanation. Is the dress code for dinner or for the entire day? Is it a mandatory or fun thing? Your site is great for planning a CM vacation. I'm working my way through back posts.

  2. Dress code is the evening (dinner and later) color theme. It's totally optional, and admittedly a little corny, but at the same time kind of fun - there probably aren't too many occasions when you'd go along with a color-themed evening at home!! There's no obligation, and you might do it for some of the evenings and not for others. The GOs do follow the color themes (since they are providing ambiance). There are usually white evenings, and also a jeans evening, and maybe an elegant black evening, so even if you don't have all the other colors in your suitcase, you can usually find something. If you want to know the theme closer to the type of your trip for any CM, post to appropriate forum on Club Med Planet and ask - usually someone there will know.

  3. HI Punta Cana mom! Your blog has been very helpful, thank you. We are going to Punta Cana next week and meeting three other families there, so we are excited. One question--I am finding it difficult to find mealtimes? Do you have that information?

    Also, any tips on good excursions with young kids (ranging from 2-5) would be wonderful.
    Thank you!

  4. We haven't done excursions (family or otherwise), to be honest, but the folks at Club Med Planet might be able to help there: http://www.clubmedplanet.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8890

    Meals...dinner is late by US standards - maybe 7:15PM; all the parents w/little kids line up to get in! I think breakfast opens at 7AM. Lunch is @noon, but lasts for a while. You can also get something to eat at the all-day cafe, Celeste, near the water, though; service is not fast, and it's menu-based (selection is more limited) but you can get simple things for kids, like quesadillas or something with fries (as a snack). If you're worried about snacks, take bananas and a few boxes of dry cereal from the breakfast buffet for later. Before dinner, we usually have a drink and either ply ours with her own beverage+cereal or items from the aperitif line-up (such as cheese cubes, salami, etc.) until it's time for a real meal.

    Enjoy your trip!!! Sounds like to fun to meet others there!

  5. Interesting this thing of the dress code.

  6. We leave Saturday for a week...wife and I and our two teenage boys (16 and 13). We also went in 2006 and loved it - will be interesting to see how the boys adapt now that they are older. Your site had some very useful information - thanks. Hope you make it back to the Club soon!
