A secluded, undeveloped white sand beach punctuated with rows of palm trees, and facing a wide, shallow turquoise natural pool, Palmilla is the ultimate Caribbean paradise. Part of the Cotubanamá National Park, a stop here is featured on every tour of Saona island. Snorkel, swim, and admire the starfish resting on the sea floor. To reach here, boats can be rented from nearby Bayahíbe or La Romana, or you can hop on a catamaran or speedboat excursion.

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.

La Romana, Punta Cana

Cueva del Peñón
