I think nobody is immune for stress, although some of us stress a whole lot more than others. I think everybody knows the serious side effects stress can cause, not only physically, but also mentally. But no worries: I have the answer for you! Of course, it is a bit of a luxurious remedy, as you could expect from me :) So, what is it, you might think. Well, it's booking an all-inclusive vacation to Hotel Riu Palace in Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic! There you will enjoy endless white beaches, lukewarm ocean water, the kindest people, top-notch service, culinary food, fabulous cocktails and of course...the sun! You don't have to worry about a thing at this hotel. Everything is well taken care of! The only thing you have to do, is get up in the mornings, have the most amazing breakfast and stroll to one of the pools or the beach...oh, and order a mojito :)
The Dominican Republic offers you a variety of day trips to choose from. You can swim with the dolphins, go to different small idyllic islands by boat, go on a bustour to Santo Domingo (the capital), race in a James Bond speedboat and so on, so you will not be bored for a minute!
Feeling it already? To convince you just a bit more, here are some pictures from the hotel!

I have been in the Dominican Republic 5 times now and for me, this is one of those vacations that really eases your mind and your body, so you will be totally recharged when going back to your home country. The last time I went was in 2008 and I stayed in this particular hotel, which in my opinion is one of the best in Punta Cana in its price range.
Have you ever been to the Dominican Republic? If not, are you now thinking about maybe going?
