As the world reopens after one of the most bizarre periods in modern history, there couldn’t be a better time for Advocates like yourself to dust off your passport and book a cheap flight to the Dominican Republic. Visiting the Dominican Republic is family-friendly, cost-effective, and will provide your family with memories that will last a lifetime.
Let the adventure begin! We’ve put together a few tips for your tribe to do this summer on your visit to the DR.
All-inclusive resorts are the way to go in the Dominican Republic! These resorts cover your lodging, meals, and might even include discounts on excursions that are offered throughout the DR. You don’t have to spend a ton of money to have fun, and sometimes you don’t even have to leave your hotel!
As you drive along the coast, you’re going to want to pay attention to the water! Every year a whale migration brings spectacular views of thousands of humpback whales off the coast of Punta Cana. They come to mate, give birth, and nurse their babies. It’s truly a sight to behold.
If whale-watching is your thing, you’ll be excited to learn that the Sanctuary of the Humpback Whales is located right here in Samana! Whale watching in Samana is a little different than in Punta Cana. Because the whales are protected by the government, the only boats that are allowed to operate in Samana waters are whale-watching boats. This keeps their environment as clean as possible and doesn’t scare them off. While you’re here it’s likely that you’ll see plenty of calves trailing after their parents!
We’ve got a lot to do here, but nothing beats experiencing the caves, rivers, springs, and zip-lines that Scape Park has to offer!
The park has so many attractions that you might need multiple days to cover it all. You can zip-line through a canopy, relax in water hammocks, swim through ancient caves, float on crystal blue water in a cenote, or take a tour through the animal sanctuary.
The family is guaranteed to love it!
Once you’re done enjoying the richness that our country has to offer, take a drive back to Samana and visit our children’s home. We love having guests, and the kids do too!
Come and experience the work that we’re doing at the Hogar De Ninos (children’s home). The kids will make you feel welcome and will enjoy playing a game or two of baseball with you!
A mission trip is more than a destination or stamp in your passport; it is an opportunity to serve and experience God moving in another
