December 14
Ocean World Puerto Plata
Dominican Republic

Dear Travellers,

Centrally located in the Caribbean on the North Shore of the Dominican Republic in Cofresi, just three miles west of Puerto Plata, Ocean World Marina and Casino are the newest additions to a US $100-million dollar complex that also includes Ocean World Adventure Park.

This incredible marine park which opened in March 2004 has already become the “must-see” attraction in the Dominican Republic. The Adventure Park features the largest man made dolphin habitat in the world, with the largest of the dolphin pools comprised of 12 million gallons of seawater. I had the opportunity to interact one-on-one with dolphins, sea lions, sharks, stingrays, exotic tropical birds, meet majestic tigers, walk through a tropical forests and enjoy the pool area.

Ocean World is an extraordinary entertainment complex dedicated to offering visitors a once in a lifetime experience that cannot be duplicated anywhere in the world.

Haiti Labadee
A Private Island

Dear Travelers,

A wide variety of activities and interests await me in this beautiful island of Labadee. The picture perfect coastal location of Labadee brings out the inner adventure seekers, the explorers and the beach lovers in each of us.

During our daylong visit, there’s plenty of time for a Sea Trek water sport of our choice... from a hair-raising ride on a personal watercraft tor relaxing all day on a floating beach mat.

Dragon’s splash water slide is my first activity that catch my attention, I embark on a short journey into Columbus Cove’s forest where a stone pathway meanders through the vegetation, climbing up to the head of the dragon. Slip and slide down this 300 foot long stainless steel custom built creation that ends in a splash in an 18 foot splash zone.

Dragon’s tail coaster I really enjoyed the breathtaking beauty of Labadee as I slowly rise up from the beach on Santa Maria’s lookout mountain. Once I reached 680 feet, I have just enough time to catch my breath and marvel at the view before turning and whooshing down at 30mph. As I race through 360 degree turns as well as dips, waves and curves, I can catch glimpses of the ocean. Roaring down the gorgeous mountainside forest, this alpine coaster is one thrilling ride you and your family will be talking about long after you get home.

I tested the trade winds on Labadee’s Dragon’s breath flight line. After a flight briefing and orientation, test your mettle on our shorter “Little Dragon” flight line. Then experience a short drive in a custom made safari vehicles to the take-off point for the Dragon’s Breath, 500 feet above the beaches of Labadee. At over 2,600 feet long, this is the longest flight line in the world over water. I really enjoyed the breathtaking views, as I sip down the flight line at speeds of 40-50 mph.

Georgetown Grand Cayman

9-10 December

Dear Travelers,

I’ve met a couple who became my friends here in Georgetown Grand Cayman. They were from Jamaica and working in this island. Noel’s  girlfriend Michelle escorted me to the 7 mile beach, one of the longest beaches in the world. It is my first time to visit the place and wow it was so beautiful, the water is so clear that you may want to drink it.

After swimming Michelle invited me to go to the turtle farm, drove me there by her car, I was so excited to see for the first time a big sea turtle. By the entrance I noticed, posted on the door that it was closed on Sunday and is open only for private function. I ignored it and goes to the front desk immediately and inquire how much is the entrance. The receptionist informed me that they were closed. Seeing my disappointment I asked them if there is any possible way to see the turtle because it is my first time to visit their country and will be leaving day after tomorrow and might not see the place anymore. After waiting for 5 minutes  they gave me an entry pass for free J..

Yahoo!!! I was amazed how big are the turtles are swimming effortlessly through the currents of the water. Michelle and I were both happy wandering around the farm. I took a lot of pictures and videos, unfortunately the battery of my camera died when we are about to take a look of the dolphins flying in the air! I thought it was only the turtles that we will be seeing... Well I was so blessed... J

Cozumel Mexico

Click here to see Ensenada Mexico

Dear Travelers,

I am here at Mexico’s largest island in the Caribbean, Cozumel it was settled by the Mayans over 2000 years ago.  Just 12 mi (20km) off the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, the island was home to a thriving population of some 40,000 inhabitants when the Spanish arrived in the 1500s. Sadly, the Mayans were decimated by smallpox or shipped off to Cuba as slaves, leaving just 30 non-Spanish inhabitants by 1570.

Thanks to a visit by Jacques Cousteau many years ago, Cozumel has grown to become a prime dive site, attracting enthusiasts from around the world. The placid, protected waters along the west coast are ideal for all things aquatic. Visitors with a penchant for archaeology may want to arrange a trip to the mainland (forty minutes by ferry) to see the Mayan ruins at Tulum or Chichen Itza.

See you there...

Rinell :-)
