The months leading up to Troy and I’s wedding were really crazy. I was finishing up my degree at Kent State, while working as a resident assistant, completing an internship and finalizing details for our upcoming wedding. Troy was busy working full-time and remodeling a house for us to live in once we were married. Needless to say… we were really excited for our 10 day honeymoon in Punta Cana following our wedding!

Most days we spent poolside or on the beach…

We also went on two really fun excursions while we were in Punta Cana.

The Seaquarium excursion consisted of walking on the ocean floor called “snubing” (cross between scuba diving and snorkeling), swimming with sharks and stingrays, visiting the natural pool and getting kissed by a sea lion (ew, no thanks).

The La Hacienda excursion consisted of traveling to the Dominican countryside, a horseback trail ride, buggy riding, swimming in a river and visiting a coffee & sugar cane plantation. This excursion was our favorite. I had never rode a horse before this so riding a horse on a 45 minute trail ride was quite an adventure for me but I loved it!

We had a really fun time traveling and relaxing together. However, after the 10 days were over, we were excited to get home and get settled in!

Have you ever been to Punta Cana? What did you think?
