Paradise can be found in many places around the world and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic is one of them. With exquisite beaches, gentle breezes and rolling waves it is a perfect place for rest and relaxation. Our friends choose the Excellence Punta Cana, an all inclusive resort for their destination wedding. We were excited to join them and celebrate with friends and family.
The Excellence took great care of us with stiff drinks at the swim up bar, plenty of relaxing areas at the pool and gourmet meals prepared throughout the day. My favorite drink was the coco loco. It’s like a Pina Colada using coconut water. Some mornings I would order one without rum to cure my hangover.
Local vendors set up shop just around the corner from the resort. We picked up some jewelry and new artwork to hang in our house to remind us of the good times we had.
Our week long celebration ended too soon and we bid farewell to the newlyweds. I still dream about Punta Cana and can’t wait to plan our next trip to the Caribbean.
