Sailing Life Day 69 to 72: 4 Days in Grand Laguna Beach, Puerto Plata (between Sosua and Cabarete towns)
After few days of not leaving our sailboat because of the sad news of Ishi The Sea Cat passing.. Jonathan and I decided to continue our pre-arranged trip to Grand Laguna Beach which is less than 2 hours away from Luperon 🏢⛱🚘 We rented a big SUV car for $27 so it’s easy to bring Captain Ahab with us.
We’re currently staying at this Condo-Hotel in Cabarete in Puerto Plata! Our first time to stay in a place where it’s pet-friendly so we’re able to bring Captain Ahab. Well, the main purpose of this trip is to bring him to the Veterinarian which happened to be just accross the road of this property. When we checked in, the staff already loved our kitty cat.
Puerto Plata is in Northern part of Dominican Republic it’s known for Expats (mostly from Canada) moving here during the winter season.. yes, a foreigner can buy condos or any land properties in this country which could help getting a permanent residence. Cabarete is also popular for kite-surfing.. maybe we’ll try it next time. While Punta Cana (where we were last week) is in the East of DomRep was popular for all-inclusive resorts & destination weddings!👫
Our kitty cat is unexpectedly loving running around the massive space that we have.. we’re on the 3-Bedroom Penthouse with a rooftop infinity-plunge pool overlooking the ocean. There’s also a massive infinity pool at the ground floor.😍
The Penthouse suite has all the ammenities that we needed and they even provided us a daily cleaning service!! First thing we did is laundry, had to wash our clothes that we used for almost a month now since we arrived in the country!🙀
It’s just the three of us (me, Jonathan, and Captain Ahab) staying here. My husband has been the one cooking our food this week.. really convenient to buy beef and chicken because there are 2 big supermarkets here compared to small stores in Luperon! Easy to cook as well since we have a big oven, microwave, dishwasher and BBQ on the rooftop! 👍
Jonathan and I spent the last 2 days just watching TV while eating popcorn! Yep! 3 massive TVs with cable (so with English channels) which is perfect for staycations! The property is fully-airconditioned..Ha! It’s getting hotter and more humid here lately, I think we’ll buy one for our boat next month! 🤗
We have our sailboat as our home but I think that whenever we go to more trips within this country, we’ll make sure it’s pet-friendly so we can travel with Captain Ahab. He’s enjoying it! ❤️
