December is the month in which my mom celebrates her birthday so we decided to celebrate it in Punta Cana together. I'm so glad she accepted my invitation.
Upon arrival at the airport, we were picked up by Renny Travel. Rafael was very warm and welcoming. He gave us knowledge about the DR that would be helpful during our stay...
We met Mr.Renny himself who gave us the history of Renny Travel and how it all began. Super fantastic company with a great leader.
We checked in at the Royalton Punta Cana. This is a family friendly Blue Diamond resort with exchange privileges to Memories Splash.
The food was delicious, there were many options to choose from for entertainment. Casino, theater, water park (next door), night club, sports lounge, life sized chess, etc etc etc.
We did several site inspections while we were there. Why? Because that's what great travel agents do. We don't just vacation - we work while we play so that we can familiarize ourselves with other properties and know where to send our travelers to and make connections with our business partners.
The highlight of our journey was when Outback Adventures picked us up to take a peek into the life of a few Dominicans. Why go to a destination if you're gonna stay at the resort all day? Trust me - that is NOT the true destination. You have to go outside of the resort to really get a true cultural experience.
So, here we are - a picture tour of the island:
