Boca Chica: A Taste of Paradise

The resort town of Boca Chica, located on the south coast of the Dominican Republic near the capital city Santo Domingo, is one of the most popular tourism sites in North America. With a distinctly international vibe due to the many travellers which visit the town every year, Boca Chica prides itself on being a diverse and exciting holiday destination with attractions and entertainment to suit every visitor.

There is no doubt that the main pull of this coastal town is its exquisite beaches. The Boca Chica shoreline is the perfect place to take children swimming because of its shallow and calm waters, as well as its white sand which lines the seabed, protecting little feet from sharp rocks. Needless to say, the warm climate means the beach is the perfect place for everyone to sunbathe and soak up the rays and enjoy the picturesque view of the dazzling sea. For those who want to spend their beach time more actively, there are a variety of watersports which are available to visitors, such as diving and snorkeling. From tranquil surroundings to exciting activities, there will never be a bored moment spent on these magnificent sands.

If you can bear to tear yourself away from the beach, Boca Chica has a number of other alluring attractions to offer. For example, shopping for interesting and quirky presents couldn’t be more fun than on Duarte Street, which runs parallel to the shore. Here, you can buy anything from everyday essentials to original pieces of artwork; this is definitely a must-visit for the shopaholics among us.

Boca Chica is also the home of a unique nightlife which usually runs in two phases: 19:00 to 23:00 then 23:00 to 04:00. During the first half of the night, Duarte Street is made a pedestrian-only zone and visitors can take an evening stroll along its length or dine at one of the many restaurants which line the street, all to the sound of Merengue and Bachata music, which is immensely popular in the Dominican Republic. As midnight approaches, the second wave of people takes to the street to enjoy the intimate party atmosphere which continues into the early hours of the morning. With local bars filled with drinking and seating areas, this is the ideal time for young visitors to mix with Boca Chica residents and fellow travellers to soak up the relaxing and welcoming festivities.

Due to the fact Boca Chica is situated only thirty minutes away from Santo Domingo, visitors have the luxury of being able to explore the Dominican Republic’s vibrant and exciting capital city as well as the local and friendly ambiance of Boca Chica. Boca Chica’s idyllic location means you really do experience the best of both worlds.

For those who want to relax by the beach, try their hand at fantastic watersports or explore the town, Boca Chica is an ideal holiday destination for tourists who want to acquaint themselves with a truly unique part of the Dominican Republic.
