A quiet getaway isn't far off when you make plans to stay in Rio San Juan.  Whether you use this location as a gateway to explore area natural sites, or you choose to spend your days with your feet buried firmly in the sand, a vacation here is like none other. 


Playa Rio San Juan

You'll find an abundance of beaches to visit in and around the area. You can click on the beach names for a detailed review of that individual beach.

A local beach where snorkeling is popular is Playa Rio San Juan. Just like most of the island's beaches, Playa Rio San Juan is backed by a wall of trees that block the city from the beach. And while the beach may not be unique, it is still a tropical beach with soft sand, calm water, and a tropical breeze.

Another location for beach-goers to consider is Caleton Beach. Caleton Beach is a small beach frequented mainly by locals on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. Because few tourists are aware of the beach, it can be deserted at times, which makes it a great place to visit if you want to escape the crowded resort beaches.

Rogelio Beach: Rogelio Beach is located down a dirt road off Highway 5.

Rio San Juan and the surrounding areas have quite a few other beaches. To see our full guide to beaches, see this page.
