Boca Chica stretches to the south, on the Caribbean side of the island, around 19 miles from Santo Domingo and barely 7 and a half miles from the international airport of Las Americas (watch out for the 5 pesos toll). It was once a small fishing port frequented in the 1920s by the Dominican bourgeoisie. The city now presents no other interest than its medium and high-end hotels, its shops, restaurants ...
As a large part of the beach is public you'll never be short of activities and water sports to keep you busy here.
At just under 19 mi from the capital and 7 mi from Las Americas airport, the small town of Boca Chica was built in the early 20th century and is worth a visit if only to experience its hustle and bustle and its beach.
The lagoon is protected by a coral reef.
The town is known for its party feel and particularly its nightlife.
Boca Chica was the first village in the country to start attracting tourists, back in the 1950s.
Playa Buyacana consists of a large strip of fine sand shaded by coconut palms and great almond trees.
