Titled Adventure on the Coconut Coast, you can read the eight page article in PDF at this link.
The bulk of this piece explores Punta Cana and Bavaro beyond the beach, from caves and cenotes to fine dining and local nightlife. It also includes a sidebar on exciting regions of the Dominican Republic that you should visit, including Puerto Plata, Samana and Santo Domingo.
I was commissioned this piece while in the thick of my research and travels for Moon Dominican Republic, but miraculously it happened during the one week I had chosen to slow down and catch up on writing.
Being on the road in the DR while researching and writing Moon Dominican Republic has left me with little time for pitching–yet I’ve been blessed with a few writing opportunities for print publications.
Here’s what’s coming up the pipeline:
*A feature article (2,500 words) on Punta Cana for Here & Beyond Magazine, a travel trade publication (October 2015);
*A feature article for Delta Sky Magazine (in Despegando, Sky’s spanish version) on Montego Bay, Jamaica (October 2015); and
*A highlight piece on the Dominican Republic (about 700 words, part of an islands round up) in The Sunday Times >>
