Arrived in Pedernales October 28. Wanted to stay close by Jaragua National Park, Bahia de Las Aquilas and beaches. Only planned on staying a few days. Now 11 days later we've got to leave for our flight.
What a wonderful place. 1st floor, 2 beds, private bathroom. Opens on a cobblestone courtyard just filled with native trees, vines, large palm. Feels like an oasis. Resturant is closed due to Covid, but I can always rustle up some coffee in the morning. Can't even hear the ubiquitous roosters in the morning with the door closed.
Parking is open and easy. Guard at night friendly and watchful.
The hostess Katia couldn't be more gracious. Not alot of tourists right now but family , longtime friends old and younger, grandchildren running around. We feel like guests at a family function.
I had a hankering for goat and Katia sent for and prepared some beautiful creole stew, rice, aguacati for everyone. Then out came the music, dancing, alaround merriment.
This part of DR isn't for everybody. But the parks, beaches,cows and goats wandering about, to me it's paradise. Even found some Scuba , Gorgeous pristine coral.
Thanks Katia, hope to see you again.More
