Juan Dolio – More than a beach town

Juan Dolio

More than a beach town

JUAN DOLIO

Guayacanes and Juan Dolio are beach towns that mainly cater to residents driving in from Santo Domingo on the weekends for the beach, attracted by the very good restaurants and good golf. Two large residential communities, Metro and Guavaberry, plus a handful of recently constructed apartments, and its hotels keep the community alive during weekdays.

 

Juan Dolio is also an option for visitors wanting to make side trips to see Santo Domingo and La Romana attractions, both around an hour west or east. Las Americas International (SDQ) is the recommended port of entry for those headed to Juan Dolio hotels.

BEACHES

 

PLAYA JUAN DOLIO

This beach has both waves and calmer areas. Juan Dolio has two roads – Calle Principal and the Boulevard, around which most of the residences and restaurants are located. In recent years, high-rise beachfront apartments have gone up that cater to affluent city dwellers who drive in on weekends, attracted by the many good restaurants. Go for the sunset, and stay for dinner.

 

PLAYA GUAYACANES

A yet to be developed beach town. Its golden sand beachfront is walkable and fronts beach homes. Good beach shoes are recommended because there are some rocks on the way. It is a lovely stroll to do early in the morning with the rising sun or late in the afternoon to see the sunset.

JUAN DOLIO NIGHTLIFE

Eating at the many good restaurants in Guayacanes at Calle Central and Juan Dolio at the Boulevard or Calle Principal, with or without a view, brings thousands of city residents to this beach area, especially on weekends. Many of the restaurants double as bars and lounges. Try your luck gambling at Dream Casino at the Coral Costa Caribe resort in Juan Dolio.

CUEVA DE LAS MARAVILLAS

The Cave of the Wonders is located west of La Romana on the San Pedro de Macorís-La Romana highway, near the Soco River and Playa Nueva Romana. It has some of the best and most numerous examples of indigenous Taino rock art (dating back 500 to 800 years) found in the eastern part of the island. Around 500 paintings and engravings on rock have been counted and many can be seen on the 787-foot (240-meter) trail inside the cave. The cave art shows human figures, iguanas, snakes, owls and bats. Visitors will go down 82 feet (25 meters) to the cool inner chambers of the earth. The path can be covered in around an hour and is recommended on days of intense heat or rain.

GOLF

 

LOS MARLINS GOLF COURSE

Los Marlins is part of the Metro Country Club residential complex in San Pedro de Macorís, half way between Santo Domingo and La Romana. It’s a fairly short course, just 6,410 yards from its blue tees. However, players who know it well warn that it should not be taken lightly. That’s because some of the fairways are extremely narrow and others are protected by sand traps and water. Its signature hole is the 4th hole, a 193-yard par 3 from the white tees. It’s a totally straight hole with out of bounds on both sides. Because its very small green is surrounded by traps, this hole is difficult even for the most professional of golfers.

Location: Metro Country Club, Boulevard de Juan Dolio

 

GUAVABERRY GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB

Located 30 minutes east of the Santo Domingo airport and close to the Juan Dolio tourist area, the course borders a tropical forest and nature reserve. The 13th hole is its signature hole, a par 3 with a crystal-clear waterfall that can distract even the most expert golfers. The 16th hole, for example, blends right into a natural tropical forest. The final hole then provides a different challenge, asking you to play against strong crosswinds that come from 200,000 year old coral rock formations. The course is located at the center of the Guavaberry residential development.

Location: Autovía del Este Km. 55, Juan Dolio

Cueva de las Maravillas National Park

Cueva de las Maravillas National Park

between San Pedro de Macorís and La Romana

The Parque nacional Cueva de las Maravillas (English: Cave of wonders National Park) is a national park located approximately 3 kilometres (2 miles) west from La Romana, in the south-eastern part of the Dominican Republic on the Caribbean island of Hispaniola.

Named after the Cave of Wonders, it was previously known as the Cueva Jaguar until 1949, and it is well known for its ancient paintings by the Taíno Indians.

The park is located on the road between the town of San Pedro de Macorís and La Romana, near the Soco River and Cumayasa. It is 800 meters long and is 25 meters underground, and has an area of 4.5 square kilometers. The caves were declared a national park on July 22nd, 1997.

Inside the cave you can see about 500 paintings and engravings on the walls, painted in black and red and made by the Taínos, the ancient inhabitants of the island.

According to reports, it has about 10 petroglyphs (rock engravings), and 472 pictographs (paintings on the walls). Of these 472, 144 pictographs were classified as cryptic or abstract and whimsical groupings at 69 points. In addition you can see 135 pictographs with a human face, 18 animal, 41 human and animal form, 18 and 38 geometric and human.

The attractions of the caves of wonder are pictographic, The Water Mirror Gallery, which consists of an artificial lake that reflects like a mirror the top of the cave and The Great Panel, in the latter you can see a cave painting created by the Taínos, which represents a funeral ritual, among others.

In the variety of flora include 48 natural species arraijanes, guáyiga, yellow caya, lignum vitae, pegapalo, jasmine, cat’s claw, carboy, stick hen, black Cuba, yaya brown, bighorn coffee, cane juice, stick donkey, Pringamosa and bitter stick, among others.

The cave opens in limestone reef belongs to the geomorphological unit known as South East Coastal Plain.

In 1926 it was called Cueva Jaguar, and in 1949 Professor Francisco Richiez Acevedo assigned the name of Cave of wonders for the beauty revealing inside and everything visitors could imagine by looking at the figures created by the stalactites and stalagmites, as well as its wide variety of pictographs.

Some of the most beautiful places in the Dominican Republic

Back in 2008, the Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Tourism glossed the DR as the country “that has it all.”

The country is still sticking with that slogan and it’s easy to see why:

MULTIGENERATIONAL TRAVELERS FIND THEIR BLISS IN DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Dominican Republic

The best destination for all

Dominican Republic

Wide variety of unique attractions for guests of all ages make the Caribbean country the perfect family getaway

Known for its wide variety of accommodations and attractions, Dominican Republic remains one of the most popular Caribbean destinations for families, offering something for groups with any interests or budget size.

The country is continuing to grow in popularity as an option for multigenerational travelers, thanks in part to the increasing number of direct flights from many major U.S. cities, making it a convenient travel destination. Along Dominican Republic’s nearly 1,000 miles (approximately 1,575 kilometers) of coastline, families are sure to find accommodations and activities perfectly suited to their needs. The country offers a wide array of hotels and resorts that cater specifically to families. Many of them are all-inclusive, making it an ideal spot for those who want all meals, drinks and entertainment to be rolled into one affordable price.

Dominican Republic hotels and tour operators have perfected multigenerational travel offerings, anticipating the needs of family travel groups and catering to them,” said Magaly Toribio, Marketing Advisor for the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism. “No matter the age of visitors to our country, all guests are sure to find something perfectly suited to their interests, activity levels and budgets.”

EASYGOING ALL-INCLUSIVES

For groups looking for an all-inclusive experience, the country offers award-winning resorts throughout the country – La Romana, Punta Cana, Puerto Plata, Samana and others offer all-inclusives inspired by the unique flavor of each region. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic’s most well known destination, offers multigenerational groups something everyone can agree on: picture-perfect beaches. The east coast’s languid azure waters lap at the area’s pristine white sands, dotted with an array of family-oriented hotels and resorts offering a playground for guests of all ages. Many of the accommodations here have high-quality onsite kids clubs and excursions catering to children as well as spas, designer golf courses, nightlife opportunities and more for adults, making it one of the best destinations in the Caribbean for family vacations. Punta Cana’s off-resort excursion offerings range from cenote swimming, dolphin encounters, parasailing and moonlight ziplines to educational day trips to historic Santo Domingo, tours into Punta Cana’s countryside, snorkeling at La Romana’s offshore islands and more.

 

ADRENALINE-PUMPING ADVENTURES

With nine distinct ecological zones, Dominican Republic offers a wide variety of terrain for many types of adventure activities, with the northern coast and northeastern Samaná Peninsula historically the most popular. The north coast’s Puerto Plata is an active destination especially well suited for families and multigenerational groups with a love of sports and adventure. The choppy Atlantic waves along the shore make Puerto Plata’s beaches hotspots for water sport enthusiasts of all ages, with the province’s town of Cabarete known as the Kiteboarding Capital of the World. Those looking for a unique day trip in Puerto Plata can visit parks offering everything from ziplines to interactions with small native monkeys, or take teens and tweens on a canyoning, rappelling or ATV tour in Puerto Plata’s geographically-diverse natural playground. Other popular adventure destinations include mountainous Jarabacoa, offering access to the highest peak in the Caribbean and some of the Caribbean’s best white-water rafting.

 

EXCITING ECO-TRAVEL

The country’s robust ecological diversity makes it a haven for multigenerational groups looking to reconnect with nature and marvel at Caribbean flora and fauna – areas like Jarabacoa, Constanza, Bayahibe and Samana each offer a distinctive picture of the island’s natural beauty. The Samaná Peninsula in the country’s northeastern corner is a widely untouched area of Dominican Republic, ideal for eco-travel, providing opportunities for families to have a quiet Caribbean escape. The area is sprinkled with some of the best resorts and seafood restaurants on the island, tucked between private coves and bays, and specializes in nature activities. Families will find plenty to explore here, such as visiting the 618 square miles of caves, mangroves and islets in the famous Los Haitises National Park viewing the thousands of humpback whales wintering in the Samaná Bay, and enjoying a refreshing post-hike dip in the pool of the peninsula’s breathtaking Salto el Limón waterfall. In the opposite corner of the island, the southwestern province of Barahona offers a more arid climate – families looking to observe nature can find everything from American crocodiles to endemic birds in this region.

 

URBAN EXPLORERS

For groups preferring the familiar comfort of bustling cities, city centers such as downtown Santiago, Puerto Plata and Santo Domingo offer numerous options for culture and entertainment. As the most cosmopolitan city in Dominican Republic, and also the oldest city of the New World, Santo Domingo offers both modern amenities as well as a rich background. Founded in the late 1400s, Santo Domingo is a city of firsts – multigenerational groups can explore winding cobblestone streets and charming ruins together in the city’s Colonial City, enjoying a variety of high-end cuisines and convenient day-trips to other areas of the country, with numerous plazas, museums, live music, parks and much more just steps from one another in the capital city. Accommodations in the area range from affordable boutique hotels to international hotel chains, with private homes or villas available for rent to families preferring to have their own space to call a home-away-from-home.

However, more casual theaters are located in the Colonial City such as Hard Rock Café facing Columbus Park and Casa de Teatro, the off-Broadway hang out in Santo Domingo, where the next Juan Luis Guerra will perform first. The small Guloya and Las Máscaras theaters stage comedy, drama and other plays all year long at their Colonial City address.

Dating back to the 16th century, the Ruinas de San Francisco, the first monastery in the Americas, is today famous for the live Bonyé musical entertainment that attracts hundreds of people at sunset on Sundays. Hostos St. between Emiliano Tejera & Restauración streets.
