I’m just getting back from my vacation in Punta Cana! It was amazing! Me and my boyfriend had a great time! Before I start my recap and post my pictures, I’ll give a little information about planning. We booked our trip online in November through Vacation Express. We paid a deposit that was about $200 a person, and the remaining balance was due in March. Which made it easier for us to afford. Everything was included with this package, flight, food and drinks.
We stayed at the Vista Sol resort
and I was a little nervous because of all the not so good reviews I’ve read. But we had a great time and didn’t have any issues.
Our first day there (Friday) we got off the plane and realized I probably should have started my Rosetta stone Spanish lessons lol I was totally unprepared for the language barrier. But despite this, using my minimal Spanish I learned in college, we were able to get whatever needed. So we walked around the resort and tried to get something to eat. We found a sports bar located on the beach and decided to eat there. All of the restaurants were included in our all inclusive package. I’ve heard bad things about the food so we got something familiar to start with lol
Yep it was horrible lol but the potato wedges were good so we stuck to that. Now off to explore and get some of that all inclusive alcohol
That’s my boyfriend! It was his birthday! Yay lol anyway I’m ashamed to say that our 1st night there we passed out around 7 and didn’t wake up until the next day lol On Saturday we got a early start and promised no early bedtime
Breakfast at the buffet was pretty good. Everything taste different though. Not necessarily a bad way just different. You see that didn’t stop Terry though lol it took me a little longer to adjust to the food.
Lunch was even weirder but I did a little better.
Some type of seafood pasta and fish which was actually pretty good.
For dinner we ate at the Mexican restaurant. The resort had 3 speciality restaurants (Mexican, Italian, and French) that you had to make reservations for. The Mexican restaurant was amazing! It was so good that I forgot to take a pic of what I had lol but we took some pics after we ate.
Oh the best part. They served us tequila shots at dinner.
The Italian restaurant wasn’t good, but they still were dressed cute lol
The next day we did our first excursion. Riding the buggies through the country.
It was so much poverty! So sad to see the living conditions so poor.
We spent some time at a beach and then visited some cave. The locals were really aggressive at trying to get us to buy stuff so we just took a few pics and headed back to our buggy.
Yall know I’m a old lady lol so after that I needed a nap. But that night we went to a beach party. It was a bunch of drunk white people dancing so it was entertaining lol
The next day we did a happy hour snorkeling cruise. It was sooooo much fun! I recommend everyone try one! Terry was not feeling snorkeling but i tried it and had fun
Afterwards we turned uppppp. They parked the boat in a natural pool and we all partied in the water for about a hour…
Yep so we were done done lol when we got back to the resort we partied with a random band that was outside lol
That was our last night and we definitely went out with a bang!
Oh side note there were so many damn birds!
And other animals…
Oh and you know I had to bring back a personal souvenir lol
