The first ever adventure immersion trip with Speak Better Spanish. After almost a year planning this trip, my dream became reality! When I started this business in 2015, I dreamed of growing it to the point where trips like this one would be a possibility, and it is such an amazing feeling to finally experience such a trip with my students!
Three of my adult Spanish students from all over the US joined me for a week in the Dominican Republic to practice speaking Spanish, learn about Dominican culture, enjoy Dominican food and beaches, and have fun!
We spent three nights in a hostel in Santo Domingo, where we went out to eat for typical Dominican food, enjoyed drinks in hammocks and at the hostel pool, visited Tres Ojos National Park for some hiking, walked around the historic Zona Colonial, visited Roman ruins, and took a day trip to Isla Saona via catamaran and speed boat.
Then we took a bus to Las Galeras in Samaná where we explored the town on foot, rode on motorcycles under the stars, ate dinner on the water, and spent time at the beach. The highlight of the trip was going on an all day horseback riding excursion to a lookout point in Cabo Samaná, with a traditional lunch on a farm, hiking to a deserted beach where we had fresh coconuts and went swimming, hiked up to an overlook over the beach, and explored a cave. We also watched the stars from the roof of an abandoned house and played Jenga over drinks at our hostel.
