Let me give you a little history about the day -- Cinco de Mayo is commonly confused by Americans as Mexican Independence Day. That date is actually Sept. 16. Cinco de Mayo is to celebrate the victory of the Mexican Army over the French at the Battle of Puebla.

For your full history lesson for the day, check out this link: Cinco de Mayo
See - what Maura said! Thanks for the history and for doing your part to educate us all!

I'm definitely up for margaritas! I think I saw a skinny margarita recipe on here. For dinner I might make lettuce wrapped fajitas.


(I'm 6 weeks from the wedding, so no more carbs for me!)


Maybe I can go shake it with some slasa dancing as my cardio for the day!

I tried to convice our office to get a margarita machine for the day. I even said we could just make them "virgin." They didn't bite.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
