Swimming with Dolphins in Punta Cana

Swimming with Dolphins in Punta Cana

I wouldn’t say swimming with dolphins is on my bucket list as much as it’s a lifelong obsession. While visiting Punta Cana recently, I was lucky enough to visit the Dolphin Explorer Park. I was hyperventilating with excitement when I first read the itinerary, but I had no idea what was in store for me. As we made the short drive from the Hard Rock Punta Cana, I started to imagine the setup of the dolphin park. Maybe there would be four or five dolphins in a large saltwater tank. Maybe we would be able to have some one-on-one time....

All-Inclusive, Punta Cana

I had never stayed in an all-inclusive resort. That is until last month, when I visited Punta Cana, the easternmost region of the Dominican Republic famous for its all-inclusive resorts. There are several options in the area, but I was staying in the biggest and brightest of them all: the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana. The lush, 121-acre property boasts over 1,000 rooms (each with their own double Jacuzzi tub in the living room), 15 pools, nine gourmet restaurants, a handful of night clubs, the biggest casino in the Dominican...

St. Lucia’s La Haut Plantation: Part II

After breakfast the mistiness persisted as I read my book. I was distracted only by the hummingbirds frolicking in the bougainvilleas and by the happy chattering of the room maids. The manager offered me the services of the plantation driver to get me to the airport, where my suitcase could clear customs only with my presence. The driver, Hugh Paul, made the journey pass quickly – we talked about West Indies cricket, Arsenal Football Club, and the devastating effect of the previous year’s hurricane on the banana crop. When we arrived at the...

St. Lucia’s La Haut Plantation: Part I

The road curved up and over the forested mountain sides. Heavy rain, pot holes, and a complete lack of lighting meant the night time journey of 40km from the airport to La Haut plantation lasted 1.5 hours. I was in St. Lucia, but my suitcase was still in Barbados. Damn! Eventually the taxi turned into what seemed in the darkness to be a huge bush. I then saw the white smile of the attendant who raised a metal barrier. He saluted me enthusiastically and pointed me towards the reception. I smiled for the first time in three hours. The unabashed...
