Located just past the main dock area, this striking wooden building sitting in Bayahíbe village is its first religious site, consecrated in 1925. It boasts a glorious seafront view, and was built entirely from wood brought over from Florida. Inside the church is a framed painting of the Divina Pastora, or the Virgin Mary, dating from 1954. Just as popular is the church’s adjacent Bayahíbe Rose garden, both at the front and the back of the property, with a wraparound gazebo for stunning views of Bayahíbe’s bay.

Bayahíbe

The scenic fishing town of Bayahíbe is an attraction in and of itself; Bayahíbe retains its Dominican pulse, from its local restaurants and bars to its street side arts and crafts stalls, and fishermen who bring catch daily.

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.
