Punta Cana has been on my list of places to visit for a long time. I got bit by the all-inclusive travel bug recently and was really excited to be traveling to the Dominican Republic to stay at a few Club Melia properties. The moment that I stepped foot on the island I felt relaxed and at peace. As I was looking out the window as my plane started to descend I was awestruck by all of the vibrant colors of this island; from the lush greens of the jungles to the aqua blue ocean. One of the first things that you will notice about the Dominican Republic is just how full of nature it is. From the mangroves which surround the properties, to the birds and wildlife that live freely in the area, Punta Cana is breathtaking. I had never been to this area of the DR before and had always heard such great things about it! I traveled with one co-worker who flew in from Orlando, Florida from the RCI Business Development team. Lee and I had both never stayed at the Club Melia properties in Punta Cana before so it was exciting to experience this together.
