beautiful beach Mar 10, 2013
Boca Chica is located on the southern coast of the Dominican Republic. Boca Chica is one of the nicest beaches in the republic. The sand is white and soft and the water is calm and clear. Its waters make up a cove approximately 1 mile wide. About 1/4 mile out, there is a reef in the shape of a giant semi-circle that extends from end to end and just protrudes out beyond the water's surface and completely surrounds the cove, forming a giant natural salt-water swimming pool with depths averaging 3-4 feet.

Ironically enough, the strangest part about Boca Chica isn't the scores of old white men and young black female prostitutes loittering the streets at night, the minimal amount of sand separating the shoreline from the rest of BC, or even the number of incredibly overweight tourists there. No. The real problem is that we thought that we were actually heading to a beautiful idealic beach. We all knew that a beach that was only a couple miles from the airport couldn't possibly be nice - yet, so many people had recommended it to us that we figured that it would be worthy of a visit. Um . . . no. Boca Chica was a big disappointment. This was one of the few times where listening to other travelers was a big mistake 'cause those morons had no effing clue what the hell they were talking about.

Seriously, tell us how you really feel Jeffy...personally Boca Chica would be beautiful if you cold just magically roll-up all that Dominican humanity that calls Boca Chica their national beach and the sex tourists and all the other chaos there is there and is not leaving.. then it would be beautiful because the bay itself is a natural wonder.

To answer the question above: renting a car is cheap in the DR, rent car and you can feel very comfortable staying further down the coast at Juan Dolio or La Romana areas and still be able to easily visit Santo Domingo or take a taxi for that matter if you don't want to drive. Santo Domingo is full of culture for what is it.
