Dominican Republic in 1 Week
This week I would like to write about Dominican Republic, one of the most popular destinations among the “All Inclusive” hotels. You will get a¬†wrist bracelet to enjoy the whole hotel without paying any extra.
After one of my latest trips to the Caribbean, in one of my favorites islands, Dominican Republic, I decided to go this time to an “all inclusive” and check it out by myself. Actually the idea isn’t bad but ¬Ņhow about traveling to know a new country? well, if you are one of those travelers, full of curiosity, you can enjoy both: the relax of the all inclusive and plan you own excursions.
Many tour operators will offer you excursions, some worth to do with them and others just do it on your own. One of the places you can not miss is¬†Saona Island, check out the picture I took there:
Another good excursion is Samana, actually is one of my favorite places in the island and maybe from the all Caribbean. Once there you can visit Cayo Levantado or Limon Beach.
If you are thinking about visiting the Capital, I would recommend you to go on your own, just take the bus Express Bavaro, and in 4 hours you will be in Sto. Domingo. Once there try to find a hotel in the Colonial area and visit all that area. To buy some souvenirs, much cheaper than in Punta Cana, I suggest you to go to Mercado Modelo. The highway from Punta Cana to Sto. Domingo is still under construction, once is done, we will need only 2 hours to reach the capital, but until then we have 4 hours.
Also for those who want to check the night life, there are few good places like Pach√°, Mang√ļ and the most populars Imagine (which is inside of a cave) and Oro in the Hard Rock Cafe Hotel.
I hope you get curiosity to travel to this country! Amazing beaches, good food and better people!
