The Dominican Republic Offers a New Place in the Sun

Postby Anthony » Sat Oct 28, 2006 8:15 am

New article from the <a href="http://travel2.nytimes.com/2006/10/29/travel/29dominican.html?pagewanted=print">NY Times</a> - mostly about Tortuga Bay:

"I WAKE up in my golden-yellow Oscar de la Renta-decorated, $650-a-night villa, throw off the 350-thread-count sheets, and pad over to open the balcony doors. In floods the Caribbean sunlight, nothing but a long-fronded palm and a patch of manicured grass between me and the sugary sand beach, which gives way to water a shade of aquamarine that I thought had existed only in Crayola boxes. It’s as if I had woken up in a travel brochure ... or a Corona commercial. But really, it’s just morning in Tortuga Bay, the new luxury resort on the eastern tip of the <a href="http://caribbean-on-line.com/islands/dr/">Dominican Republic</a>."

A lot of good stuff for the traveler mixed in with this <a href="http://travel2.nytimes.com/2006/10/29/travel/29dominican.html?pagewanted=print">article</a> - definitely worth reading.
