Such a nice surprise to stop by this place after visiting all of the crowded beaches in the region. A small little down town area is so cute with only moped services to commune.

this is a different side of the Dominican Republic, it is desert and not heavily populated. The water is clear and clean, the views spectacular. There is almost no development in the park, signs,trails etc. This is where Columbus stopped on the way back in1492
