I am guilty of double dipping.

Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana is coupled with its identical twin resort.

The entire property is situated on an ivory sand beach. All guests are in wonderful Deluxe Junior Suites. The suites are in Villas. Nothing between you and the ocean but a huge lake pool.

The suite has a soothing Jacuzzi tub and furnished balcony. The resort offers unlimited dining and drinking with a choice of gourmet buffet or specialty restaurants.   There is a mini-bus to shuttle guests throughout the complex.

Relax in the spa, hang out at the swim-up bar, play in the ocean and enjoy the nightly entertainment. There are plenty of interesting, educational and thrilling excursions.

Here’s my number one thrill recommendation.

Grab your sunscreen, sneakers and sunglasses. It’s time to tackle the Farallon Zip Line in Cap Cana. This zip course is the most unique in the world.

Most zip lines are attached to trees. These 8 pulse jacking lines are attached to El Farallon Cliff. Take a look down.

You are overlooking the Caribbean. The adrenaline starts pumping when you are flying 250 feet above the forest and traveling 1,500 feet. Rocketing in space at the speed of life.

Now it’s time for a break. This is where they pass around the hotdogs, sandwiches, chips, sodas and water bottles. But your adventure is not over.

Your party moves on to Hoya Azul. One of the most famous cenotes in the world. Picture crystal blue water in a natural lagoon at the base of a massive cliff. Wrap up your rush with a dip in the fresh water.

The experience takes about 7 hours and then it’s back to paradise. Keep the fun going with a Sushi cavalcade at Mikado (the Japanese restaurant) and then take the whole family to a colorful live show at the theater.

Drift off to sleep with the melodies of merengue, bachata and salsa lingering in your head. Grand Bahia Principe Punta Cana is where you don’t have to worry about dreaming. You’re living the dream.

Yes, I am guilty of double dipping more than once.

In the pool, the ocean, and the Jacuzzi.
