    Playa Rincon

    12 reviews

    Arrive at an open beach that is 3-4 miles long, with white sands and palm trees stretching as far as you can see, and lush green mountains in the background. You have it all to yourself as there is absolutely no one on it. No development, no lifeguard, restroom, nothing. Untouched beach with waves gently lap the shores, and soft ...

    Playa Limon

    3 reviews

    Way off the beaten track is Playa Limon, a long, sweeping, and gorgeous beach lined with a thick forest of coconut trees--a Caribbean beach at its best. Though tour groups occasionally stop here, you'll pretty much have it to yourself most days. Be sure to BYO drinks and eats--there are no businesses or vendors on the beach. (No worries if ...

    Fortaleza Ozama

    Calle Las Damas at Padre Billini
    3 reviews

    The Fortaleza Ozama is an interesting stop, especially if you enjoy clambering among old military buildings, checking out cannons and rifle embrasures, and imagining what life must have been like for the soldiers who lived within these walls over 400 years ago. A short guided tour is the best way to learn about the fort--plus it's totally affordable and offered ...

    Playa del Macao

    13 reviews

    Playa Macao is a beautiful, classic Caribbean beach just north of Punta Cana/Bavaro. It's the best--and closest--surfing spot to Punta Cana with a bunch of fast and hollow waves from both beach and reef-point breaks. Watching the surfers and just chilling out on the beach also is a popular sport--the only downer is that ATV tour groups occasionally come tearing ...

    Calle El Conde at Isabel la Catolica
    9 reviews

    I have a soft spot for public squares in Latin America--places where people of all ages meet up, shoot the breeze for a while, feed the pigeons, eat a churro (or elote or cotton candy or....), and watch little kids in big sneakers chase each other around. Parque Colon is all this plus a historic cathedral, street performers, tour guides, ...
