The city dweller’s beach, Boca Chica is as synonymous with Santo Domingo as any of its principal sights. A forty-minute drive lands you on this beautiful white sand beach town, filled with an authentic Dominican bustle: vendors hawking wares, hotels and restaurants lining the sand, and rows of fry fish shacks selling an authentic lunch of red snapper, tostones, and yaniqueques. Adults enjoy meals and cold beers on the beach to the sound of merengue and bachata, while the children frolic in the shallow, calm turquoise waters that make Boca Chica a family favorite. On the eastern edge of town are a row of swanky beach clubs and restaurants offering a seafront lounge atmosphere.
