Home. The weather’s not bad because it’s summer. But there was no fresh-caught mahi for dinner, no sweet greetings in Spanish, no swaying palms and our currency is just freaking boring.
I have to say that the Northern Region of the D.R. truly does have a bit of everything. If you're looking for an extended winter sojourn, the price is still right for the budget traveler. Clearly the jet set is well taken care of at properties like North the Wyndham Heavens V, the new Gansevoort, and Casa Colonial, without any feeling of pretentiousness. For the dedicated waterman, there's something to do, no matter what the conditions. There are world-class opportunity for exercise and yoga. And if great meals in the evening can make your day, you will not be disappointed (or hungry.)
From the beaches of Encuentro to the Rio Damajaqgua, the restaurants and bars of Cabarete, the outback and the city of Puerto Plata, to the view from Mount Isabel de Torres, it's a place of endless adventure. Muchas gracias to the people of the Dominican Republic.
