It was the second day of the trip and I was revved up and ready to go! I was so tired when I first got there. I had to leave the house at 4am to catch my flight and I made it to Puerto Plata by 4pm. Switching planes, bus rides, and the weather change put a toll on me. I was in bed early Friday night after dinner and caught up on some sleep.
I woke up Saturday morning, packed up my stuff, put my workout clothes on and headed down to breakfast to meet the girls.
We had breakfast at the Veranda, which was located on the beach. You had the choice of eating outside on the terrace or inside. It was so beautiful outside that we sat on the terrace. The weather was flawless.
There were a lot of runners on the beach trying to beat the afternoon heat. The Dominican Republic is a very active place and it has so much to offer for fitness. It’s definitely inspired me to get back in shape for summer.
The Veranda’s breakfast menu looked so good. I had a hard time choosing what to have because it all looked so good.
I went with the American Breakfast because it sounded really good. It came with a tropical fruit bowl, basket of fresh baked pastries and toast, two eggs, has brown potato, bacon, and coffee.
As you all know, I love my coffee. The coffee in the Domincan Republic is so smooth and creamy. It may be the best coffee I have ever had, even better than the coffee I had in France. I ended up buying five bags of coffee at the gift shop to take home with me. I’m actually enjoying a cup right now.
Not only is the coffee so good in the Domincan Republic, but the fruit is out of this world. You don’t know what fresh fruit is until you have it in the Dominican. You can tell when fruit is full of chemicals and pesticides, but in the Domincan, it’s from plant to plate!
The eggs were so good and cooked to perfection. I ordered them over easy, just the way I like them!
The portion sizes are perfect. I feel like in the States, you get way too much food for breakfast and you just feel miserable after eating it all. I felt great after a breakfast like this!
After breakfast, we all got on the bus and headed to the Extreme Hotel for a day of Crossfit, Circus Training, and amazing food!
