Holidays to Boca Chica
A pretty tourist resort, set along a 1.6km white sand beach in a crystal blue lagoon, it's a great choice for children and families in the daytime - whilst having a late night party scene for couples and singles in the wee hours. The town is just 30 minutes from the bustling cultural capital of Santa Domingo (the first European settlement in the Western Hemisphere), but it's famous itself for its excellent diving and romantic idyllic setting.
Boca Chica Public Beach
Set in a calm lagoon created by the harbour's reef, its soft white sand and clear blue waters make a special beach.
Juan Dolio Beach
A thin, curved strip of white sand in the tiny village of Juan Dolio. Expect blissful peace and palm tress.
Cathedral Primada de America
The oldest cathedral in the Americas, it was the former site of Columbuss tomb and boasts beautiful murals.
The Museo del Hombre Dominicano
Santo Domingo's best museum is devoted to the country's anthropology, colourful carnival costumes and voodoo.
Whale watching in Samana
From January to March, thousands of whales travel to the Samana Peninsula to breed. Jump on a boat to get up close.
Catch a baseball game, the sporting obsession of the country's residents. The season runs from October until February.
Nearly all of the town's best restaurants are by the beach. Expect a great array of seafood and hearty local cuisine.
If you want a taste a closer to home there's a selection of Italian restaurants serving typical regional classics.
Juan Dolio beach nightlife
The best spot to avoid some of Boca Chica's rowdier nightlife, it offers beachside cocktails and local music.
Late night nightlife
The resort's wilder party scene, from 11pm onwards, centres around a few clubs and is a mix of tourists and locals.
