On the north coast in the Puerto Plata province of the Dominican Republic is a small town Luperon. The beaches here are especially attractive and are great for swimming, while if you're willing to travel just outside of town you can lace up your hiking boots and see some of the most beautiful natural sites you're likely to ever experience.
There are several beaches to choose from in and around the area. Click on the name of each beach for a detailed guide to that particular location.
Luperon Beach: Luperon Beach is wide expanse of pristine white sand that lies west of Puerto Plata. Palm trees line the beach and provide protective shade while the aquamarine waters appear cool and inviting.
Another option for beach-goers to consider is Playa de Nena. While there are many natural beaches in the north, this one is a bit more green, with dense trees popping up throughout the entire journey here. However, this does not detract to the wonderfully clear water, which mixed with only gentle waves, make it a pretty good snorkeling spot.
Playa Nena Cove: Wile you will have to travel down dirt roads to reach Playa Nena Cove, the roads will be relatively well maintained, though it is probably still a good idea to have a four wheel drive vehicle.
These examples are only a few of what's on the island. For a more thorough discussion of this specific topic, go to this article.
Even though most tourists are drawn by the beautiful water and coastline, that isn't the only way to experience the area's natural beauty. The one example is Twenty-Seven Waterfalls of Damajagua. It is situated 14.6 mi. Southeast of central Luperon. These waterfalls are less a natural experience as much an extreme attraction. Gear up in a life jacket and helmet and climb, jump, and swim in these large collection of pools and falls.
Travelers do not usually come to Luperon to find gambling, although there is one option nearby, Casino Riu Bachata. Located at the Rio Club Hotel, Casino Riu Bachata is the perfect spot for nighttime entertainment in Puerto Plata. Whether pulling the slots or participating in a high stakes table game, you'll feel the energy pulse through you as you create a memorable night.
