dominican republic 2018

OUR ANNUAL FAMILY VACATIONS IS ALWAYS ONE TRIP FOR THE BOOKS. The family vacations are AN ADVENTURE AND WITH AN EXCITING FAMILY AS MY HUSBAND, there is ALWAYS SOMETHING FUN & DIFFERENT TO EXPERIENCE WITH THEM.

LAST YEAR MY HUSBAND’S FAMILY HAD DECIDED ON A TRIP TO the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC AND MY INNER SELF SCREAMED FOR JOY. I LONG FOR PLACES WHICH ARE FILLED WITH CULTURE WHILE MY HUSBAND LONGS FOR BEACHES AND PALM TREES, SO THIS WAS THE PERFECT DESTINATION FOR both of US! although we mainly stayed in a town called samana with our family of almost 30, my husband and I took a short & sweet little day out to santo domingo to really explore the culture that the Dominican had to offer, this hip city was full of the colonIAl architecture, historical sites, glimpses of local life, fruit vendors, courtyard cafes while watching the worlds best cigars being hand rolled at the local cigar shops.

our family vacations usually consist of boat excursions to different islands and sites for snorkelling or to see the best beaches, this time around, it was completely different, we ziplined, horseback hiked to a one of the samana’s best waterfall, we tried local cuisine by our amazing in house chefs all while swimming in our indoor/outdoor pool. safe to say this vacation was ONE OF MY FAVOURITE TRIPS WITH THE FAMILY.

come explore with us to see what really dominican republic had to offer!
