Incredible Bavaro Beach
My last year’s ultimate relax vacation was Bavaro, a beach paradise on the East Coast of the Dominican Republic, knowing that the white sand beaches, turquoise water and the luxury resort I am staying at, are all I needed for the real refreshment. El Cortecito, one of only a few original villages left in this area, is amazing. Higüey, the capital of the Altagracia province, with its amazing church, La Basílica de Nuestra Señora De La Altagracia is also worth a visit. People rave about Bavaro Runners Safari Adventures which offers day tours that include a variety of activities like horseback riding, a visit to a school, cigar and rum factories and include a buffet featuring Dominican food. When you travel with kids there are some excellent theme parks to consider like The Marinarium, a marine park on the sea offers snorkelling with sharks and rays, Dolphin Island where you can swim with trained dolphins and Manati Park Bavaro, which offers a permanent exhibits of birds, reptiles and fish as well a show with parrots, dolphins and dancing horses. Guaranteed fun for the little ones!
