If you have time, try to go to Boca Chica. Nice restaurants near the sea, some of them with some beaches and water activities. Food is good but I had better.

Definitely a tourist area. Very nice beach and lots of water activities. There are 3 major restaurants on the beach and a number of hotels. Mainly a beach area for residents of Santo Domingo to go on the weekends.

The beach is not that great compared to Cancun or Aruba but peoplr are friendly, women are beautiful, food is really affordable and hotel accommodations very cheap. The only reason only issue is aggressive vendors.

I didn't spend that long at Boca Chica but had a stroll along the beach which is quite long. Plenty of beach restaurants and high end hotels taking advantage of the beach and shallow waters. Wish I could have spent longer there.

It is about an hr from the capital. Most famous beach which mean there will typically be full of locals and tourists depending what days you visit. Overall pretty clean.

I rated the Hamaca in Boca Chica highly. It is within walking distance of the town which is very lively at night. The breakfasts and the evening meals have a great variety for all kinds of tastes and I found the rooms were very well cleaned and maintained. I did not make the short journey to the capital San Domingo... More

We had a good day here. The ever present vendors selling every imaginable thing are very aggressive. Sometimes there would be six different people approaching you at once. Forgot about relaxing, you gotta keep a very close eye on ANYTHING you bring. If you set something down and turn your head, it's gone.

Boca Chica was awesome! We made friends with the hotel staff, swam and had breakfast at the hotel for a day getaway from the city. It was sooooo relaxing. I didn't want to leave.
