Dominican Republic


Hey Lovelies!

I am sorry I have been absent for so long, however I just got back this morning from a week long trip to the Dominican Republic. We went to Rio San Juan (about an hour outside of Puerto Plata) and I could not have had more fun!! The weather was fantastic and the beaches and pools were amazing.  We got to meet so many great people from all over Canada and a few other countries as well.
 

 
Some friends we made on our trip!

On our third day there my friend and I decided we wanted to get a little adventurous so we made the hour and twenty minute trek to chill out with some dolphins, sting rays and sharks!


 

The Dolphins were amazing; however I was not a big fan of the stingrays. The minute you get into the water they begin to swarm you, trying to suck off your fingers and toes. As a result I panicked a little and sadly there are no pictures to share.

After regaining my confidence back a bit, it was time to snorkel with the sharks. I actually enjoyed this way better. They do not swarm and tend to just swim around minding their own business. I will post some pictures of this over the next few days.
 

Have you taken a trip south this winter?
