Dreaming of visiting your computer’s scenic screen saver? Playa de los Muertos can make that dream a reality – starting with this gorgeous coastline shot. #DRdaydreaming 💙💚 📸:@dronepics_rd

📍 Playa de los Muertos
Located on the north coast, directly off the highway in Cabrera, this light blond-sand beach is not what you expect: a river flows so near, it gives the sand a soft, spongy texture, while the sea is a mixture of cool and warm water from one end to the other. It is an intriguing experience, but the shallow waters make it even more ideal for everyone. 📸:@moises.arias06
Picture it now: Your toes slip into the soft white sand overlooking turquoise waters on the coast of Dominican Republic. The sun is setting on another postcard-perfect day in paradise. The only thing that could make this moment more blissful? An ice-cold Dominican cocktail!

Likewise, effective September 15, travelers will not be asked for any type of test prior to entering the country, nor will massive tests be carried out upon arrival, but rather random quick tests will be performed.
