Tucked inside Scape Park, in the Cap Cana area, this “blue hole” cenote offers a refreshing swim in natural, cool spring waters. Surrounded in lush rainforest, Hoyo Azul, approximately 14 meters (45 feet) in depth, sits at the foot of a 75-meter (246-foot) tall limestone cliff covered in vegetation. You’ll have to cross a suspension bridge and hike past a myriad of flora and fauna, including an orchid garden, to make your way to this hidden oasis. Leap into the tempting turquoise waters, or use the steps to enter this paradisiacal, natural pool.

Boca de Yuma

Boca de Yuma offers a daytime escape to a scenic Dominican fishing village. Boasting panoramic cliff top views, it has often been compared to an Italian seaside town, where restaurants, bars, and shacks line up above the sea. The Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León once had a home in the area.

Casa Ponce de León

How often do you get to step into the home of a 16th century Spanish explorer? Juan Ponce de León’s residence continues to stand in the southeastern town of San Rafael de Yuma, close to Higüey, where he lived before heading out into the seas to conquer neighboring Puerto Rico.
