10/3/2009 - 10/10/2009
Location: Boca Chica, Dominican Republic
Lodging: Oasis Hamaca Resort
Travelers: Steve & Christine
As you can imagine, we spent a lot of time on our all inclusive resort, which included beaches, pools, a spa and casino. The few times that we left the resort were to participate on excursions. Our first excursion was a trip to Santo Domingo. In Santo Domingo we spent time exploring the city and Parque Mirador del Este. Our next excursion was a tour of the Dominican countryside and included visits to: a sugar cane plantation, a Dominican market, and a Dominican home, where we made our own coffee and witnessed a cock fight exhibition match (not my favorite to say the least!). The Dominican tour ended at a series of beautiful waterfalls, where Steve and I exfoliated with natural clay. This vacation was the perfect mixture of culture, the outdoors, relaxation and fun!
Oasis Hamaca Resort
Our resort was located at the heart of the Bay of Boca Chica,
one of the most famous beaches of the Dominican Republic.
These canopy beds were great for lounging in the sun with a good book.
