Dominican Republic

“Dios, Patria, Libertad”


Sometimes the place that you don’t have on your radar is a pleasant surprise.  From the music to food and people, the Dominican Republic leaves you wanting more. The colors are vibrant just like the folks on this gorgeous island. It exudes positive vibes and I think it has to do with their laid back approach to life. Or maybe it’s just the ron.

Puerto Plata

San Felipe de Puerto Plata and Amber Cove, a Carnival Cruise Port

I spent only a few hours here, but made the best of the situation by hiring a taxi tour guide who took me and a friend into Puerto Plata. Don’t stay in Amber Cove, you’ll miss out on all the fun! I have to come back to fully experience the night life. Hell, I just need to come back to fully experience the D.R. If you have time, go to the rum factory, the chocolate factory, and bathe in those Caribbean waters. Mas Macorix por favor!
