Winter escape to the amber coast - Puerta Plata

As we kitted out to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic for our Christmas break this year, we kissed goodbye to Canadian treacherous winter and welcomed glamour for a week. Piecing together few snippets of our journey here for you.  

The sight that greeted us was hinting happiness. Lush tropical surroundings with plumped bellied clusters of clouds with chaos in the pool were good enough to woo us away.
Wild flowers were dotting every corner and every turn out was scenic at the resort. Plotted peridot green palm trees were a visual counterpoint summing up the energy and warmth in the atmosphere.

Bumming at the sandy shores in dazzling Caribbean sun was the best part. There is really something about staying closer to coastal proximity. Sandy shores with tropical air, feeling sand dust on my feet, breathing crisp beachy air ….this sunnier climes, I tell ya!

We choose the facilities which offered all-inclusive and family friendly ones. Our bedroom suites were quite lovely and pleasing for families.

Those bars cater our thirst of beverages by every pool and that made us piled on calories with slushy drinks and loaded guilty glasses of Pinacolada and Margarita. The culinary escape was not impressive for us being vegetarians but still we pigged out big festive feasts tailored as per our taste and spice.
The vacation turned out a true family affair as there was no internet for our socially butterfly teenagers and they had to essentially splash out with us in the pool ;)

With sun screen on and beach suite on, we hit the OCEAN WORLD for a day. The list of the activities during our day trip to this fab place is endless. The highlight of the trip was the “Dolphin Encounter”. See this beaming happy little face with dolphin :)  Yes, we got to touch, hug and kiss the wonderful creature.

Whales and Dolphins shows were total hit for any age crowd. Kids also tasted snorkeling while we just stopped and devoured the picturesque sights of the place.

Another exciting adventure is now added to our vacation itinerary, hoping to carry on the fun, laughter and sunshine until another vacation. We are now caged back in hoping this vacation therapy will help us to brace the long Canadian winter for now. Hope you enjoyed the snippets as much as I enjoyed sharing with you.

Until we meet again, stay connected lovely peeps, toodles!
