Dominican Republic!


This weekend I learned that I am going to the Dominican Republic on a family vacation in December. Woo hoo!

Numerous people have explained that the beaches there are extremely beautiful. Many claim the most gorgeous in the world. When I went to Tulum in the Riviera Maya (you should totally check out that link to see my amazing trip a few years back) I was blown away by the color of the water. I cannot wait to see how this area of the Caribbean compares.

The trip will be all-inclusive and you best believe I am going to get my fill of food and alcohol. I am craving a Miami Vice already! The cool part about where we are staying at is that there are several hotels within the resort. We selected the highest hotel which means we can visit
any of the other hotels to check out the pools and eat at the restaurants.

I am super giddy with excitement. Here are pictures of the paradise that they call Punta Cana, all of which are from the resort.
