“Life begins when fear ends.” These are words to live by, according to Thiago Correa, an Instagrammer who is revolutionizing social media. With more than 434,000 followers and a passport full of memories, this Portuguese man is going all out. Today we sit down with him to chat.
If we close our eyes and imagine the Caribbean, scenes of a beach with crystal-clear water and white sand probably come to mind. Thiago Correa, an all-terrain individual, decided to make this dream a reality by setting out on a republican adventure in June 2016.
Upon reaching Punta Cana, this Instagrammer stayed at the Barceló Bávaro Grand Resort, where he enjoyed a few days of rest and tried some of the activities available at the hotel, such as sailing, exercising in the fitness area, and getting a relaxing beach-front massage from the hotel’s wellness center.
Thiago, who is an expert in 360° videos (making him a Go Pro partner, by the way), created a video that perfectly summarizes all the experiences of his trip: “When I travel, I don’t leave my drone at home. Now that I have this technology, I can’t imagine traveling and taking aerial photos and videos without the drone.”
Like a true adventurer, Thiago likes to explore every hidden corner of the destinations he visits: “Of all the activities I did at Barceló Bávaro, my favorite was the day trip to Saona Island. It was amazing. The island is gorgeous: crystal-clear water, countless palm trees, white sand… What blew me away is the fact that the area is practically untouched and unchanged, with very few buildings. This is what I liked the most.”
He also visited Hoyo Azul, a natural pool with crystal-clear water below a huge cliff located on the southern end of the coast: “I jumped and absolutely loved this blue lagoon.”
