Discover Playa Bavaro in Punta Cana Dominican Republic

Also known as Bavaro Beach, like the numerous hotel complexes there who have adopted the same name, this fine sand beach bordered by the peaceful and turquoise sea was once surrounded by a series of fishing villages. Beach resorts have now taken over. Other than souvenir shops, bars and 'comedores' (small restaurants), the large market which opens onto the beach, Bibijagua, is interesting if you want to take some local specialities home such as local handicraft, rum or cigars, though beware of imitations. Do not buy any sea shells or stuffed turtles or sharks; these are protected by international law and likely to be seized by customs on your way back home. A stone's throw from the market, the part of the beach called El Cortecito, near the village of Haiti Chiquito, is home to the staff of the local hotels. These residents as well as 'colmados' (typically Dominican local corner shops), give back some of its charm.
