Our Tropical Escape (and a Return to All-Inclusives)

After our initial experience with an all-inclusive with the Riu in Cancun, Rob and I had no trouble deciding on our "second official trip" as a couple- our only issue was deciding where to go!  However, since we decided that Cancun had been a bit chilly in October for our taste, we headed even further south for our February trip.  This time we were off to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for a relaxing week at the Riu Palace Punta Cana!

We knew that this trip, in the middle of a cold New York winter, was for us to relax and warm ourselves through and through.  And that is what we did, for six glorious days.  We sat on a beautiful beach.  We read.  We drank fruity tropical drinks.  We ate.  We slept.  It was, without a doubt, one of the most relaxing trips we have ever been on.

Needless to say, we loved the Riu Resort.  It was very similar to the Riu in Cancun-the restaurants and lay out were familiar, which made us feel almost as if we were at home.  The weather was perfect, the water was a beautiful turquoise, and we enjoyed all the amenities the resort had to offer.  In fact, we loved the Riu so much the second time, that we're headed to the Riu Ocho Rios for our honeymoon next month!
