Well it's now Sunday and sadly we leave tomorrow. We've had a lovely last day with our time split between the beach and pools and enjoyed lots of lilo fun. We are sad to be leaving because we don't want to have to go back and do thinking and jobs. The only good thing about leaving tomorrow is that the world's most annoying group of Americans arrived last night with unbelievably loud voices whooping and hollering over the most ridiculous things, carrying massive flasks and ...

But the reason why I came to Las Galeras was Playa Rincon - one of the nicest beaches in DR with white sand, tiny lapping waves and palm trees ...
... for a girl who loves the beach), I was debating where to go. The top beaches are in British Virgin Islands, Turks & Caicos, Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Aruba, Cuba and Grand Cayman. But I had a friend in Dominican Republic and as I speak Spanish and I had heard how hospitable Dominicans are, I decided to head there. I booked a flight to Punta Cana and started learning about the country (i.e. locating the nicest beaches). I knew I didn't ...
