Heyyyy fren! I'm Kimberly Cherrell but you can call me Kim. I'm a Natural Hair, Beauty & Lifestyle Influencer and I create content for YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok. I'm a dog mom to Skye and I LOVE to travel. What I enjoy most about travel is being able to experience new places, cultures, food, and meeting new people. I've traveled all over the US and internationally to Jamaica, Aruba, Cuba, and Tulum. Can't wait to check this destination off my travel bucket list!


Day 1

Bienvenidos and welcome to the DR fren! TrovaTrip will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the fabulous 4-star beachfront hotel. After you check in, take a moment to settle in. Then, get cute because it's time to meet the entire travel squad and head out to the welcome dinner so we can toast to an amazing trip full of adventures!

Day 2

Buenos dias boo! Today, you’re off to explore the beautiful town of Samana. On the guided tour, you'll learn all about the town's history, walk across the Samana Cayo bridge, and marvel at the colorful streets.

Next, you'll hop on a speedboat and travel from the peninsula to Cayo Levantado. Just three miles from the bay, this charming small island boasts white sand beaches and lush palm trees. Enjoy a tropical cocktail on the beach, take a dip in the turquoise water and relax!

End the day at the secluded beachfront hotel by relaxing by the pool or enjoy paradise from the comfort of your room.

Day 3

Ready for some adventure? Today we are going to the El Limon waterfall!

This towering waterfall, about 130 feet tall, is surrounded by a thick, verdant forest. To get there, you will ride on horseback (or hike) a 1.5-mile trail down the hilly terrain. Keep an eye out for the flora and fauna that will surround you! You’ll see tons of palm trees, pineapples, and national birds! Once you reach the falls, you can cool off from the journey in the freshwater emerald pool.

After this refreshing adventure, you’re off to Las Terrenas, a popular section of Samana. It’s the perfect blend of a dreamy beach village and a bustling town. Get your shop on at the boutiques selling local crafts, grub at the local restaurants, and drank at the bars!

Later that evening, be sure to wear your dancing shoes and be ready to move your hips! You're going to learn how to dance the Bachata, a music genre that originated right here in the DR. We're going to have a ball dancing the night away sipping on Cubra Libre cocktails!
