|We arrived safely in Punta Cana and found a decent place to spend the night. It definitely wasn't a 5 star all inclusive, but it was clean, included breakfast, had a pool, AC and was just across the street from the beach. Check out the photo of the hotel gym (once I find a way to post them)! We went out for a seafood dinner (paella) and soon learned how little English everyone speaks outside of the mega resorts! Most people think of the Dominican as being a touristy place, but most tourists stay in their resorts, so it seems so far that it might be tougher to get around than anticipated. So far we're relying on my limited Spansh and the kindness of others. Tomorrow its off to the capital of Santo Domingo.
