The Dominican Republic does not only consist of all inclusive resorts and mass tourism, one also encounters villages like Las Terrenas where tourists and European residents live in perfect harmony with the local population
The Dominicans are very joyful and welcoming.
In the village you’ll encounter all the necessary commodities: banks, pharmacies, currency exchange...
In the many local typical restaurants (comedor), you’ll be able to feast on a very small budget. And the touristic restaurants will cater to any tastes you might have.
All year round you’ll enjoy luxurious vegetation and paradise beaches.
The easiest and friendliest way to visit the area is on scooter or quad. Many renters are locally available. But you can also travel on a tight budget by using the public transports (guagua). They offer hourly departures.

The ambient street chaos, the noise of the old vehicles, and the pollution associated to the ever present smile of the locals and the beauty of the scenery have a tendency to give a strange and mitigated first impression to the newly arrived tourists. You may hear comments such as: “I hate the place – it’s not that nice – not too bad – incredible – beautiful – I love the place – it’s the prettiest place on earth”.  All of these have a part of truth in them, but it’s only after having fully experienced and appreciated your surroundings that you’ll feel that it’s.... a magical place

Beware, nature buffs. You’ll be astounded!!!
