Fishing

Recognized fishing destinations in the DR include Bayahíbe, a village founded by fishermen in the 19th century, as well as Punta Cana, Puerto Plata, and Samaná, all of which offer sports fishing with the possibility of hooking marlin, barracuda, and dorado or mahi mahi, among others. Freshwater river fishing is popular in La Romana, and in Río San Juan, to catch snooker or wahoo. Reef trolling and deep sea fishing opportunities abound along the reefs of Cabarete and Sosúa.

Fishing tournaments are popular in the Punta Cana, La Romana and Bayahíbe areas, when it gets lively with beachside music, and plenty of fresh catch cooked on site. A great way to experience traditional fishing is to find the fishing cooperative in your chosen destination, and learn from the best.

Kayaking, fishing, hiking, boating, and bird watching through a tunnel of mangroves: these are a handful of activities to enjoy on the Laguna de Bávaro-home to reptiles and flora.

Happy National Merengue day! 💃🎶  UNESCO declared traditional Dominican merengue music and dance an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2016.  This cultural expression has influences in Spanish, African and indigenous cultures. It was composed by the "cuatro", guitar, Güira, and the tambourine originally. In 1870, the "cuatro" was replaced by the accordion and years later the saxophone, bass and piano were added.🎶🥁🎺🪗🪘  What's your favorite merengue song? 🎶  📹: @juanluisguerra
