Playa Preciosa

Not far from Rio San Juan and Playa Grande, a wonderful beach : playa Preciosa. Just stop there and have a look, it worths it. You won't find anybody on that beach, it's paradise on earth.

Eat with the locals...you can have a great meal. This BBQ is on Playa Grande, a place you have to go. Its near the bluest sea and the most white beaches you will ever see.

Golf
A 9 hole golf course for beginners is only five minutes from Cabarete. About thirty minutes away is the 18 hole Golf course at Playa Dorada and about sixty minutes drive in Playa Grande you find one of the most beautiful golf courses in the Caribbean designed by the celebrated architect Robert Trent Jones, where ten of the eighteen holes are played right along the sea cliff.

The Dominican Republic is...

by Patricialuv

The Dominican Republic is absolutely a great paradise. The most important site I've been and cannot wait to visit again is Puerto Plata. It's located in the north of the country and it contains beautiful playas (beaches)like Playa Dorada, Sand Castle (a beach resort), Playa Grande, and Playa Sosua, a couple of miles away from each other.

The beautiful panoramic scenes surrounding the mountains, next to the atlantic ocean, cover most part of Puerto Plata. The simplicity of the people,their friendliness and that most of them are willing to give you a hand whenever you need help.
Besides that, my most fondest memory would be car traveling from the north of the Dominican Republic passing by Puerto Plata, Santiago, La Vega, Bonao, Barahona, Santo Domingo, La Romana, Higuey and many more beautiful places to visit.

Rio San Juan

We are headed to Playa Grande at the end of Feb..would love to tour around the Rio San Juan area. Is the Blue Lagoon different then Gri Gri Lagoon?
What else that is not typically marketed by excursion companies is worth while to see in the area?

by firmansam

hi i am going to the bahia principe in san juan over new year I have heard there is a good golf coursenear by does anyone have any idea of the price of green fees and club hire etc or if anybody is there from 28th dec to jan 10th let me know and we could meet up for a game i,m a 11 handicapper ps how much does it cost to take your own clubs?

Re: golf in dominican republic

by ditcho

It will cost you $90 US for 18 holes at the Playa Grande golf resort. Plus a tip of about $15 for your caddy.
Course is spectacular and worth playing. Bring clubs as rentals are scarce and poor.

Where to Go?

by joshandmoni9

My wife and I are going to be spending a week in the DR this April. We plan to spend 2-3 days with our friends in Santo Domingo and then are debating on whether to spend the remaining 4-5 days somewhere on the North Coast or the Samana Peninsula. Any suggestions between the two areas? Would trying to fit both areas in 4-5 days be pushing it?

RE: Where to Go?

by Escottinsosua

The north coast of the Dominican Republic is beautiful.

Heading from Puerto Plata to Samana you will have the mountains on your right and the beach/Ocean on your left.

Sosua has a beautiful beach, shopping, Casino, restaurants and nightlife. I own QuiXotes Restaurant which is located in the Europa Hotel on the main street of Sosua.

Cabarete haa a beautiful beach, is reknown for Surfing, Kite Surfing and Wind Surfing and attracts a young crowd.

Cabrera is just past Playa Grande Beach and Golf Course. Known as the Pebble Beach of the Caribbean. It has 12 holes (Pebble beach only has 8) directly on the ocean. Cabrera is known for high end tourism with people renting villas for upwards of 15,000 US dollars for a week. Of course smaller and less expensive ones are available but you need to reserve one year in advance for the more expensive ones as they are book way out in advance. There is a 16 million dollar villa being built right now there.

You have nice shopping in Cabrera and Nagua where the new international Airport just opened. Past there you get to the lovely beach towns of Las Terenas and Las Gallares and then to Samana known for whale watching and the beautiful Samana Bay.

I think my most favorite place is Cabrera because it is real laid back and tranquil.

Have fun, 5 days you can see it all. Do your driving in the morning and spend the days and nights in different towns and on different beaches.

Any other questiosn just ask or email me at scott@quixotesrestaurant.com
