We spent most of today on the beach, wandering up through the other properties to the main shopping drag, called Caribbean Street. Lots of real stores there, and no real pressure to buy — now that’s my kind of shopping! We picked up a couple of trinkets, and wandered along the beach, shooting photos of the amazing beauty on the beaches.
Tonight was the first night we signed up for one of the signature restaurants and got ourselves out of the buffet lines. If you wanna have something other than the buffet, you have to stand in line at 10am to sign up for the signature restaurant of your choice. For us today, it was Italian. By far, this was the best meal we’d had since we arrived in Punta Cana. Nice food, plenty of it, and great service.
We closed out the night at the piano bar, playing cards and drinking whatever the waitstaff would bring us. After trying quite a few drinks from the menu — including some nasty Cuban drink — we decided that pina coladas were what they did best. That was a nice quiet way to end the day.
