Dominican Republic was a Spring Break destination for my high school senior. It was a mother-son trip in Punta Cana and we were looking forward to the rest and relaxation after a productive high school career. “D.R” as we called it was a gorgeous beach resort trip for us and I’ll always remember how surprisingly warm the water was for March….you could walk right into it! This particular trip kept us at the resort instead of venturing off since we were herding teenagers and concerned about safety but we did pick up some cultural nuances. We learned about larimar, the unique stone of Dominican Republic and its healing effects. http://www.bernardine.com/gemstones/larimar.htm
Barcelo Bavarro Palace Deluxe was the hotel we stayed at in Punta Cana.
