More than meets the eye: Callejón de la Loma

Callejón de la Loma Cabarete dominican republicCome, put your sneakers on we’re going for a walk.

Sightseeing fun spots is one of our favorite things to do. Each one of them seems to proudly carry it’s own unique style, more like a personality impressed in walls and structure. Our eyes quickly shift from side to side taking it all in: a small truck cruises slowly selling colorfull watermelons, further on a terrace is painted with a political party colors, the fish shop is packed with fresh catches of the day, a funky graffitti displays a black and white woman, a young man with dreadlocks drinks coffee as the dogs sunbathe on the side of the street.

Tucked in between two headlands, Playa Diamante has beautiful crystal clear turquoise water that stays shallow without any waves or currents for a at least hundred meters from the shore.

North Coast jewels - Playa Caleton

This is where the mighty Atlantic Ocean is tamed forming a beautiful natural pool with crystal clear water.  The sandy beach slowly descends into the water making this the ideal playground for the whole family.

A day out in Puerto Plata

Puerto Plata old town - photo credit:godominicanreplublic.comThe beautiful North Coast of the Dominican Republic has a lot more to offer than just extreme sports,  waves, wind, beaches and tropical cocktails. Sometimes it’s nice to get away for a day and experience something different, maybe even absorb a bit of history... Puerto Plata, officially called San Felipe de Puerto Plata, is only 30 minutes away from Cabarete and has some pearls on offer for those interested in looking for them.
