Punta Cana - Club Med - Day 1

Whoo! We made it to Club Med in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic -- the site of our next travel adventure. The flights here were painless, even with our little guy.

On the 3 hour leg of the flight, the ticketing agent gave us 3 seats together, rather than the two we purchased -- and this turned out to be a gift bigger than an upgrade to first class. Having that extra seat to allow our little one to roam, made a huge difference. Him sleeping for an hour and a half didn't hurt either.

The Punta Cana airport was adorable. In theory you had to clear customs, though, I couldn't tell when we actually did so. It was just super laid back.

And as for Club Med -- well, to be perfectly honest, it feels tad bit overwhelming. I feel like a Freshman in college where I've missed the orientation, and everybody else knows what they are doing. But, the campus really is beautiful, the activities seem like they’ll be tons of fun, the baby sitting setup is quite impressive and I could really get used to this walk into a restaurant and eat and drink anything you want, and not pay a dime routine.

I’m excited to get into the swing of things tomorrow and hope we can really soak in some rays.

Some photos from the day...

Oh fooey, a bathing suite is required in the pool. Oh well, I'll have to come up with some new swimming plans.

This place really does look like a manicured paradise

  1. Very nice! Looks like you guys are enjoying yourselves...lucky! :-)

  2. Need more updates. How is everyone. We hope you are all enjoying yourselves. What does the little guy think of his trip? Is he having fun with the sand?

  3. Hey D!

    The little man is loving the trip. He's been to the beach and the pool, and has played there till he's been completely exhausted.

    Child care here is great, so Shira and I are even getting some alone time...
