Las Terras is not only a popular destination amongst foreigners, but resident's of the Dominican Republic's capital frequent the town as well.  It certainly is a thing of beauty, as the area attractions make obvious:  beaches and botanical gardens are top sites to see.


Moron Beach

You'll find several beaches to choose from in and around the area. Click on the name of each beach to get additional information about that particular stretch of sand.

Las Ballenas: Los Ballenas can be found at the junction of Fransisco Alberto Caamano Deno and Avenida Los Corales.

A second place to consider is Bonita Beach. Just as you enter the town of Las Terranas driving east from Puerto Plata on the main highway, you'll encounter an arrowed road sign directing you to Bonita Beach. The road that drives to the shore is made up of sand, but it typically in good enough condition that your standard vehicle can make the trip.

Coson Beach: Coson Beach is located in the north east coast of the Dominican Republic. Surrounded by not much else than miles of forest, this beach is often deserted, which makes it the perfect place for a quiet getaway.

These examples are just a few of the options that are available. To see our detailed page about beaches, check out this page.


El Salto del Limon

Even though most visitors come for the beautiful coastline, those aren't the only way to enjoy the area's natural wonders. One such example is El Salto del Limon. It is located 6.9 mi. East-Southeast of central Las Terrenas. <p>Located in a thickly forested area along the Samaná peninsula in northeast Dominican Republic is a beautiful water fall called El Salto del Limón. Tourists have the choice of hiking or riding horseback to the falls, and in some cases mules are even available to ride on for the trek. Those who have made the journey before say that the hike is doable for those in good physical condition, but can be rough for those with health issues.</p>
