Travel Thursday: Punta Cana, DR

Conversation I had with Mr.K, he’s not a “pretty boy” type of person. So when I heard this from him, it’s hilarious.

Mr.K: Looks in the mirror with him making crumpled face and says. I got wrinkles baby!
Me: umm…you’re not suppose to crumple your eyes like that…everyone have wrinkles that way. Plus you’re “inserted his age” you know. Do you want to use my night cream?
Mr.K: No, but I thought I was still young, like 17.
Me: HAHAHA…you’re funny. Why are you bargaining down your age so much?

Punta Cana, DR for his early 30th birthday a few years back.We stayed at the all-inclusive Majestic Elegance Punta Cana and it was an amazing resort with awesome food & drinks, stunning view, magnificent room and friendly staff. It was the best resort we’ve ever stay, I was debating between Majestic Elegance and Excellent. But end up with Majestic Elegance because there was a good deal due to its grand opening. December weather is hit or miss there, we had a couple nice sunny days, and some days with occasionally overcast.

Please excuse the quality of the photos, my Sony T7 at the time didn’t take good photos in low light environment.

We did two excursions while we were there:

First one was ATV excursion, riding all-terrain vehicles (ATV) through towns in the Dominican countryside and on Macao Beach. There was a stop at a cave with a souvenir shop, where we were given sometime to cool off in the cool cave water. I only dip my feet in, but people were having a great time jumping in it. What I like the most about this excursion is to be able to see how the local live. We rode the ATVs on dirt roads and through puddles of muddy and puddle. If you decide to do this excursion, make sure you wear clothing you don't mind getting dirty.

Second one is an all day excursion on a catamaran to Saona Island, with a stop at what they called 'Natural Pool' lagoon, famous for its abundance of starfish, crystal clear hip deep shallow water with white sandy bottom. We had a buffet lunch and spend few hours on Saona Island.
