Dominican Republic a great place to spend the winter CHEAP!
Winter Fun in the Dominican Alps
Looking for somewhere a little different for your next winter vacation?
How about the unhurried ambience of a rural Caribbean village also brimming with opportunities for outdoor adventure? Treat your self to a glorious natural playground and to a lifestyle a million miles from the stresses of life at home. I stayed at Rancho Wendy is a friendly; family run lodge nestled in the Central mountains of the Dominican Republic. Extensive grounds, house several cabins looking out on a freshwater stream and charming gardens. I enjoyed horse riding, swimming, volleyball and Tarzan swings. More modern amenities such as Internet, DVD and Satellite TV are found in the main house and bunkhouse. With a million healthy activities so you can join in or relax and enjoy spectacular views of the lush mountain ridges. They like to let the guests roam as independently as they want, but was always on hand to help with any information or requests. There are kitchens and barbecue facilities on the ranch plus a number of good restaurants in the nearby town of Bonao. The neighborhood grocery stores are stocked with food produced in the surrounding area, including coffee, cacao and sumptuous tropical fruit. Beyond the ranch, a world of adventure awaits the intrepid family. They run various tours to waterfalls, dams, and mountains, though independent travel is also possible. Sports are offered nearby include golf, fishing and rafting. You would have never thought it possible to encounter such stunning alpine landscapes and temperate climate on a Caribbean island. Further a field; day trips are possible to pristine Caribbean beaches and charming colonial towns. Road access to all major towns and airports is quick and simple, though the serenity of the nearby villages will make you feel like you have wandered back in time. So let this safe, tranquil ranch is your base for a tropical adventure that will open your eyes and blow your minds. Come prepared to be surprised!
