You ready for vacation? This week we’re looking at Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Yes, I like Pina Coladas.
Currently browsing packages and flights to Punta Cana because I need to ditch this cold and soak up some sunshine! It feels like -30 in Toronto today! My sister went to Dominican a couple years ago and since I’ve been to a bunch of the surrounding islands (Cuba, Puerto Rico), so it’s on my destination list.
One of the things I love about the Caribbean is the beautiful blue water. I adore being near the ocean and salt water on my skin. It’s also a great opportunity to practice my Spanish. Since I’ll be travelling alone, I don’t really have to speak to anyone if I don’t want to! One of the best things about going on a solo trip is plenty of time to do whatever you want and/or keep to yourself in silence. You might be thinking ‘but you are so outgoing!’, truth is, I really cherish my alone time and everyone needs to recharge their batteries. I’m one of those ‘outgoing introverts’ if you can believe it. Travelling alone is an excellent way to explore a new city or country. If you’ve never done it I HIGHLY recommend it.
Does this not look wonderful?
I’m looking to stay at a quiet resort without kids. I’d rather be amongst seniors than people on family vacation! Aside from vitamin D and relaxation, this trip is to put finishing touches on my book before it comes out in March.
My ideal spot is an all-inclusive resort on the coast with white sand beaches where you can catch a few waves. Last time I went surfing was 2013 in Costa Rica so I’m dying to get back on a board. I dreamt about surfing last night.
Have you been to Dominican Republic? Have any reocos? I’d love to know. Ready to book ASAP!
Sending sunshine through the airwaves right to where ever you are!
