5 Must Do Water Parks for Your Bucket List
Last Summer the kiddos and I headed to Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana (Dominican Republic). It was the grand opening of Nickelodeon’s newest and arguably chicest resort to offer an over-the-top water experience at Aqua Nick.
The kiddos had a blast with water slides, splash pads, spray grounds, and a lazy river, Aqua Nick is the place to hang out and get wild. Hit the mark with a water cannon, join a Mass Sliming, or meet poolside for a Slime Time photo opportunity.
The stunning beachfront resort reimagines the art of hospitality to offer upscale rooms and a Gourmet Inclusive Experience, perfect for Nickelodeon fans and luxe resort lovers alike.
