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...

The lush, 121-acre property boasts over 1,000 rooms (each with their own double Jacuzzi tub in the living...

Cofresi: Tranquility in the Dominican Republic

Okay, so it was dumb luck that I booked a villa in this tranquil ocean front oasis, three miles west of the clamor of Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. The road to Cofresi would be easy to miss if it weren’t for the billboard directing me to Ocean World, but more about that later. My home for the week, Villa Carolisol was reasonably priced and lovely with a large second story covered porch, 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a pool. Palm...
