This is the fourth time that Steve and Mary Haller have been aboard Ciganka for a high adventure. They have sailed with us in the Bahamas three times and now they spent 11 days enjoying the Dominican Republic. We did it all! We snorkeled a reef on the north coast of Luperon, we hiked to the blow holes and caves, we ate fresh fish and lobster in El Castillo where is where Christopher Columbus built his first settlement, we explored several beaches, strolled the town of Luperon and enjoyed the hospitality of the locals, drank some beers in our friends tree house, hiked down to the 2nd largest waterfall in the Dominican Republic, and white water rafted down El Rio de Jimenoa. We lived life large. The pictures that follow will show you the spectacular gifts of this amazing country we were fortunate to experience. And once again – thank you Steve and Mary!
