I am back! Back from what was one of the most amazing trips I have ever been on. Sister and I had the great pleasure of spending a week in Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic. It was so hard to leave this tropical paradise knowing what we were returning to back in Connecticut/New York... frigid temperatures and snow.

Punta Cana has become my favorite destination in the Caribbean, especially if you are planning a destination wedding or honeymoon, you will want to consider this at the top of your list. From the minute we got off the plane we entered a world of complete luxury, natural beauty, and relaxation. With some of the most pristine beaches, turquoise water, soft white sand, crashing waves, perfect weather, bright sunshine, five star service, hospitality and cuisine, Cap Cana is a place you must experience!

We spent the week in a luxury condo on the top floor at the Marina in Cap Cana. In the condo every amenity has been considered, from the marble floors to the granite counter tops, flat screen tvs, large fluffy couches, whirl pool bath tubs, huge master sweet, rooms designed with meticulous attention to detail, it was absolutely amazing!

Other favorite spots include:

  1. Secrets Sanctuary Hotel (Love piano bar, Blue Marlin, gorgeous waterfall pool, private beach, and private villas, also offer all inclusive packages)
  2. Farallon Restaurant (sits on a cliff overlooking all of Cap Cana, incredibly fresh fish and 5 star service)
  3. Blue Marlin at the Sanctuary Hotel (table side serenade during dinner, again 5 star service and the freshest fish caught that day, a little more casual sitting out on the water you can see and hear the waves crash)
  4. Caleton Beach Club (One of the most beautiful beaches in the country, gorgeous pools, great beach bar, amazing ceviche, and frozen banana drinks- our favorite spots on the trip)
  5. Aquare Mare at the Marina (great sushi, great vibe, outside on the dock at the Marina)
