Found it!!!
With 2 friends (they were muggels at all :-)) we found it after a nice wlak from our Hotel "Bahia Principe". But a pencil wasnīt in the box, so we took some photos. They will be shown here, when our friends are back (they got our photo-chip).
If you are not in a hotel near, you can drive to the Breezer-Hotel, there you can get to the beach. From the Breezer-Hotel itīs a walk along the nice beach about 45min.
Have fun in the DomRep!!!
Sorry for the bad English :-)

Wreck Diver and I made several trips up the beach to locate this cache and though it was difficult to inconspicuously search the rescue tower, we enjoyed the walk and the view.

Dive Princess and I arrived at the Iberostar Dominicana in Punta Cana on Sunday, July 10 and where we are both rescue workers by trade, we had made it a point to walk the 1,500 feet up the beach to check the Riu rescue float the next morning.

There are several kinds of common micro hides in Massachusetts, but looking around the unoccupied tower, nothing familiar was immediately evident.

Not wanting to draw too much attention to ourselves, we departed and made an effort to locate the Unterstand micro with just as much success. With the number of vacationers growing, we departed for breakfast at our own hotel.

Returning again in the afternoon, we found the tower occupied by uniformed hotel staff. A third return in the early evening still provided beachgoing observers, but we used the tower climb as a photo opportunity to conceal our true intent.

On Tuesday, I had logged on at the Iberostar Dominicana's Internet Center and noted that Truckie45 had located the cache the day before. I also noticed the owner's photographs of the hide and though they helped clarify the search area and the type of hide, I wasn't too keen on trying to locate it.

The next morning, we returned before breakfast and found the tower unoccupied and the beach relatively deserted. We resorted to the photo opportunity ploy and I climbed the tower and searched between pictures. This time I was successful in locating the micro container.

We signed the log and re-hid the micro as found.
