You mean, aside from the fact that we had an amazing time? Most of our days were spent sipping on fruity drinks and lounging by the pool/beach, catching as many rays as we could!! Our nights were spent drinking a few more drinks and entertainment by the hotel staff that we of course couldn't wait to be part of!! Let's just say our names were well known by the hotel staff!! haha!
We met a lot of great people while we were down there, heck we even adopted a "nana" - she was there as a babysitter for her grandchildren, we thought she did such a great job, we called her nana ourselves. But on Nana's night off, we showed her how to PARTY and she showed us some sweet dance moves!! That lady had the moves!!
We did one day trip which included going to the Fort San Felipe - which was built in the 16th century to fight off pirates, we went to the Amber museum, as well as the factory. We also took a cable car up 2600 feet to explore Mount Isabel de Torres, which had a botanical garden and a huge statue of Jesus. The view was absolutely amazing. We went to the Brugal Rum factory, where we purchased 4 bottles of their finest. We went down town Puerto Plata, stopped at the Catholic Cathedral Church and we stopped at a beautiful orchid garden!!! We had lunch in Sosua and then hit up the market on Sosua Beach and lounged for a bit. It was a full day, but a fun one.
Another great thing about our trip was that I got to spend it with my MOH and her boyfriend!! We don't get to see each other all that often, so this was the perfect reunion!! I will admit I was a bit nervous about travelling with friends, but I would travel again with these two any day!!!
So, that is my trip all summed up!!! As I said, I would highly recommend staying at the VH Gran Ventana. It was affordable and very accommodating. The WiFi was not free, but who cares, you are on vacation!! The beach vendors were pesky, but you didn't HAVE to go to the beach!! Overall, great time!!!
Oh and by the way, this was my 200th post!!! Wowzers!!!
