And believe it or not, you’re just a few hours away from walking along the white, sandy beaches and swimming in the crystal blue waters. While a few days certainly isn’t enough time to see all that the island has to offer, it’s just enough to whet your appetite and keep you coming back for more. Today, Angie Orth welcomes Jessica van Dop DeJesús.
