    La Rancheta was a wonderful place to stay, with spacious bungalows constructed in a jungle garden setting. The owner, Ron and his wife were incredibly hospitable and helpful.

    After seeing our first booking, and turned that down. Ronald welcomed us with open hands to his La Rancheta. Wonderful place where you feel that Ronald and his family is happy to have you there and takes good care of you. The breakfast was amazing, and the swimmingpool with natural flowing water was a delight. We strongly recomend it!

    ... different shades of blue, green, and turquoise because of its clarity and the light and varying sand color in the shallows. So this is what a perfect beach looks like? I guess I have to admit that being more of a mountain man I’m not too much of a connoisseur of beaches, but lack of crowds, colorful water, palm trees near the shore line, and green hills across the bay works for me!

    ... but there aren’t many ways to
    make even a pretty basic living. The settlements all look a little
    hardscrabble, but maybe in a warm climate you don’t need much more to survive
    than a roof over your head and enough income to buy food. The peninsula is
    actually one of the main growing areas for the D.R.’s significant production of
    organic cocoa, but growing agricultural commodities usually doesn’t provide
    much income for too many people.

    ... s brains in. I hope they drink so much Ron punch tonight that they end up in Ron induced comas until we leave. I will add some photos to show you some bits of the resort that we hadn't told you about. The public beach is really nice - we have had some nice walks on there both at night and during sunset. After 6, the beach becomes hotel property so all the boats have to leave. This is the section of the beach that was the setting for the old Bacardi advert. We saw some ...

    After an epic journey to get here, we arrived last night about 8 to the hotel. The transfer took about 4 hours and we got to see quite a bit of the Dominican Republic! We saw all kinds of things on the way: lots of palm trees, the coastline, jungley bits, dusty towns, run down shacks, Jackie Nails, people standing in doorways looking, shops in sheds, lots of ...

    ... the tropics, how to you end up sunburned?

    We wait another twenty minutes, then another twenty more. The boy is doing his best impersonation of a world bank protestor - making lots of noise and messing things up without making a coherent point. Another twenty minutes have passed and we finally have our food…but is it too late?

    In addition to our order, we receive some white rice, and a bowl of beans. I am not a fan of rice and ...
