There are sunsets and then there are sunsets. This was definitely the latter. Both the sky and water looked as though they were on fire with a kaleidoscope of colors.
It was the perfect introduction for the even more vibrant colors I would be witnessing later in the evening at Ocean World Casino. I was there to see Bravissimo, a Vegas-style show that takes spectators on an enchanted journey throughout the Caribbean. The show is located on the third floor of the the aquatic themed casino.
Bravissimo has been given the title, “Best show of its kind in the Caribbean,” by many and it is easy to see why. The twenty-six dancers and singers definitely know how to entertain.
Between the electrifying music and costumes, I was instantly transported to an exotic and glamorous world. My favorite act of the night was the much beloved song, “Por Amor,” which was passionately performed by the two main singers.
The finale was spectacular as well. It was a representation of all of the animals found in Ocean World and the costumes were works of art. With performances every Tuesday – Saturday night beginning at 9PM, this show should not to be missed if visiting Puerto Plata!
Make sure to stay until the very end of the show, because that is when you can take pictures with your favorite performers. I only wish that I had been able to try on one of those headdresses!
