The best vacation I have taken is my honeymoon this past June. My husband and I went to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. It was so beautiful and peaceful there. We had a great time just relaxing and having fun!

Sounds great. In fact I will be in Punta Cana on business next week and have been told that there is not too much to do there !?! I have afternoons free and plan on maybe scuba divind, jet skiing, etc....other water sports that are included at the resort that I will be at. Do you have any suggestions on what to do in town? I've looked at several travel websites though I would like to hear it from an actual vacationer, without the fluff.

We didn't really go into town... I don't think it's very safe... which resort are you staying at? We went on the outback safari and that was a lot of fun! Most of the resorts have stuff to do right on the premises... so you never really have to leave the resort! We had a great time!

Thanks for the insight. I am staying at the Paradisus Punta Cana all inclusive. Have you heard about this place?

One other thing: Do you know if I need to bring an electrical adapter to the DR?

I've heard that's a nice area, but it sounds pretty removed from the rest of the country, I guess because parts of the country could be dangerous. I went to Guatemala a few years ago, which I really enjoyed. Some parts can be dicey, but the places I went to were fine. I liked mingling with the people and walking through the local street bazaars, which are where most natives do their shopping. Guatemala is a very inexpensive place, too.

My favorite vacation is when I went to New York and spent a few days in Manhattan with two of my best online friends. It was a totally awesome time. Love them and hope we can do it again sometime.

What's a vacation? OK, I'm being a little sarcastic. I think the best one I can remember would be the anniversary trip my wife and I took to a small town here in Wisconsin. The town itself wasn't very memorable (the best restaurant was Subway, to give you an idea) but I had gotten us the honeymoon suite and that was fantastic. Our only regret is we forgot our camera.
