But i must say i have now been so excited to talk about my guide that is full with! If you’re preparing a journey right here quickly, great deal of thought for the honeymoon or are merely dreaming up new places to go to later on then make sure to pin these pages to your travel board for future use! I’m going become sharing places to check out, where we remained, my favourite moments and what you ought to pack!

We invested a couple of weeks at aspirations Los Angeles Romana additionally the accepted spot certainly was gorgeous! It had literally all you could ever wish from an all comprehensive resort, we had been ruined with 7 restaurants, 8 pubs, a restaurant, a spa, different levels of private pools and a lovely stretch of coastline over searching the ocean. The resort because no matter where you were it never felt crowded in itself is absolutely huge which was one of my favourite things about it. My other favourite thing was that that they had resident flamingos on web site. Hell yes. Oh in addition they also served amazing fruit every day from a motorboat on the coastline thus I was cheerfully getting an everyday fix of watermelon and pineapple!


Saona Island was the very first spot we visited although we have there been plus it certainly was breathtaking! It’s a tiny island about a 40 minute boat trip far from Los Angeles Romana where we explored the coastline, had meal and drank from fresh coconuts! They will have a few individuals coming around offering you things made on the island and I purchased the essential ring that is beautiful! You might buy coconut oil, cigars and a good amount of other gorgeous jewellery! Afterward, we went snorkelling and also saw some starfish!

I became absolutely gutted through it one day and I managed to snap a few of my favourite scenes on the way through that we didn’t get to explore La Romana properly, we did however get to drive! Certainly one of my closest buddies utilized to the office on a cruiseship and she’d stop right right here most of the some time strongly suggested it! There’s tons a very good pubs, lovely restaurants and you will look at luxury cruise ships getting into the harbour that will be an awesome sight!


We invested every day when you look at the capital of this Dominican and I also need to say it absolutely was certainly one of my favourite times!! we positively liked checking out this city! We visited Christopher Columbus’s old home, went in the basilica, wandered the colourful roads and also visited only a little chocolate factory where i got myself some SUPER YUM chocolate tea! Anyone that knows me understands that I’m enthusiastic about tea so combining that treat with chocolate was a significant result for me! This particular journey we had been on additionally stopped at a cenote along the way house that has been a very good touch, it is constantly therefore good to see some normal marvel’s while you’re in another nation.


I will be notorious for more than packing and never interestingly I did it once again this journey! Realistically for as long as you’ve got a few swimwear, some sandals, a hat, a few lightweight dresses and some comfortable hiking shoes then chances are you have actually everything required! I’d additionally recommend using some type of cardigan or place with you if you’re thinking about visiting the basilica in Santo Domingo since they ask which you mask. I did son’t get one plus they offered me a shaw but i acquired the impression it absolutely was more straightforward to have one thing to you! Demonstrably a coastline bag is vital too and where would a woman be without having a flowery top or two?!

Admittedly we only sought out one evening but never the less it was one hell of per night! We headed towards the newly built CocoBongos as we’d been into the one out of Cancun a times that are few knew the show will be great! For anyone who don’t understand Cocobongos, it is like a theatre show that is show/acrobatic night club which is EPIC! They have great dancers recreating scenes from films such as for instance Chicago, Moulin Rouge, Tron, Spiderman, Pirates of this Caribbean and impersonators for Michael Jackson, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Queen and a whole lot more! I would personally strongly recommend it!


Some more items to think of with you, bizarrely I got stung by wasps twice on the trip and a friend of ours had quite a few mosquito bites (even though James had none if you’re visiting the Dominican Republic soon, I would suggest taking some sort of insect repellent! I assume this will depend as to how delicious you’re ha!), we utilized dollars that are american there rather than as soon as had an issue utilizing those everywhere! If you’re staying in this resort make certain you simply take a vacation to your spa! We literally had the most useful massage of my very existence here for $50 and I also swear the lady worked miracles on my back! It absolutely was additionally therefore relaxing having the ability to make use of the remaining portion of the spa facilities such as the sauna additionally the jacuzzi! Obviously don’t drink the water from the taps, stay glued to bottled and make your best effort to produce your time and effort to speak only a little spanish when you can! i recently believe that’s a courteous thing to do regardless if it’s no more than saying ‘gracias’ and ‘hola’.

Woah! If you have made it this far then we salute you! What exactly are you waiting around for? Go and pack that suitcase, there’s A dominican that is exciting adventure for you personally! xx
