Our Trip to Punta Cana (Dominican Republic)

Just 20 days ago I made one of the most impulsive decisions of my life and I cannot recommend it enough for every couple.

While this was super last minute we had been saving and planning for a trip like this for a while now. So when everything lined up so well to take 5 days and go on a trip for Riley’s birthday birthday and to reconnect as husband and wife.

My biggest thing I want you to understand is how doable this is for you to do too. Here is our trip breakdown of everything.

Total Cost: $2,545.93

Included: Flights, All Inclusive Hotel (5 days, 4 nights) and Shuttle Transfer.

Hotel: Dream Onyx Resort and Spa- All Inclusive

Plan a getaway at our incredible all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana that is set on the palm-fringed Uvero Alto beach between the rainforest and the ocean. A luxury retreat perfect for families or couples, Dreams® Onyx Resort & Spa offers 806 elegant

We stayed in the Junior Suite with a Partial Ocean View. We booked our stay with a travel agent and was able to save money and not stress about our plans knowing someone else was taking care of us.

FREE PERKS: Free bottle of Wine, rum or tequila. 25% Discount on Spa Service, 1 in room breakfast.

AMENITIES: Kids’ club, teen club, and water park. Enjoy limitless gourmet dining and top-shelf beverages at 11 dining options and 11 bars

Our favorite restaurant was by far the steakhouse which we discovered unfortunately on our last night there. So be sure to hit that up as much as possible when you go. But you honestly can’t go wrong as even the buffet was AMAZING!

Our Why

This Trip was a little getaway for Riley’s birthday, but also to take time to “date” each other bc we haven’t been great at keeping up on date nights, we also had a $500 voucher expiring from a cancelled Mexico trip.

It is so important to us to continue to date each other and grow together. We strongly believe that dating shouldn’t end when you get married. It’s important to slow down and be present with each other in this fast paced season of our lives.

I’m so glad we were able to do this and don’t take this opportunity for granted. I’d do it in a heartbeat again. I hope that you can have the opportunity to do this as well which is why I am providing a savings breakdown so you can plan your next trip with your Partner!
