To check out a fun beach resort for locals and not tourists, it's just a few kilometres outside Santo Domingo

Add to my guide

Boca Chica

One of the DR's original beach areas, just east of Santo Domingo, favoured by locals.

To see where Dominicans go to play in the water, head out of Santo Domingo less than 40 kilometres (24 miles) to this modest beach city, which began its life as a resort way back in the 1950s and is crowded with local families especially on weekends and holidays. Calle Duarte is lined with restaurants, pubs, and discos, so there's plenty to do both day and night, into the wee hours.
