Boca Chica

Welcome to

Boca Chica

On weekends Boca Chica caters to Santo Domingo city residents who come for the shallow turquoise-colored waters. Boca Chica is the place to eat fried fish or seafood with a view at one of the many beachside restaurants. On weekdays, tourists can practically have the beach and town to themselves. There are three beach areas: Boca Chica (swimming, dining and night life), Andrés (sailors and sport fishers), La Caleta (divers).

Over the years singles tourism has settled in, but Boca Chica’s three all-inclusive resorts are heavily into conference and sports tourism.  Tourists staying there get to enjoy a beach, proximity to Las Americas International Airport, are half an hour from the Colonial City, and are close enough to good golfing in Juan Dolio and La Romana.

Boca Chica is conveniently close to the Mirador del Este park sports venues, diving at La Caleta Underwater Park, sailing and fishing installations and the beach volleyball courts.

Boca Chica is a 10-minute drive from the Las Americas International Airport (SDQ).

Playa Boca Chica

Boca Chica is considered the capital’s main beach. Stretching a near mile long, this bustling stretch is well protected by a large coral reef, and its shallow turquoise waters—not more than four feet in depth—make it a favorite for families.
