Hi friends! Thanks for stopping by! I have decided that every Thursday will be “Travel Thursday” on my blog. I have been incredibly fortunate enough to do some traveling and I want to share it with you! I will include amazing restaurants I ate at and great deals I found. I hope that it will inspire you to take a trip somewhere new!
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, today’s Travel Thursday will be on my trip with Andrew to the Dominica Republic. We went exactly a year ago and will never forget the amazing food and beach. So why Dominica Republic? Well being the financially savvy girl that I am, I came across a great deal on Groupon. It was an all inclusive resort getaway to Punta Cana in Dominica Republic for $500. It included 4 nights in a beachfront resort, unlimited meals and alcohol, and resort entertainment. We flew out of Atlanta and paid $350 for our round-trip direct flight to Santo Domingo. From there we took a taxi to our seaside escape. The people were immediately warm and welcoming. We spent every day under a cabana, swimming, eating, drinking, and even taking naps on the beach. It truly was the epitome of a relaxing getaway.
One of the days we even got to go scuba diving! We were able to feed the fish and see all sorts of marine life. I have been scuba diving since I was a little girl and its truly a remarkable experience. You feel so small when you are underwater. I strongly recommend scuba diving whenever you go on a beach getaway.
Dominica Republic should definitely be put on your travel list. It is a very popular honeymoon destination because of the beautiful beaches, romantic sunsets, and affordable prices. But if you are like me and want a fun place to go for a long weekend, head to Dominica Republic.
