The beach access is about 50 steps from your front door. Just follow the coconut path through the palm trees~* It's a lovely, secluded sandy/rocky beach. Watch birds and local fishermen, listen to the waves and minnows splashing, or simply swim, relax, and unwind.
You are welcome to make use of the kitchen (shared with the hosts).
There is a private patio behind the cabaña as well as an open sundeck on the beach side.
We have many local fruit trees on the property for you to enjoy, in-season -- limes, oranges, banana, papaya, mango, noni, jacote, nispero, plantain, and of course coconut~* Interaction with GuestsThe hosts live on site and are happy to help you arrange transportation, scooter/motorcycle rentals, volcano climbs, waterfall hikes, fishing trips, kayak tours, horseback riding excursions, trips to local attractions, etc!
Or, if you're looking to just come, relax, and unwind on a quiet beach, this is the place to be! The NeighborhoodIn the village of Punta Gorda, you can find a couple of quaint restaurants, a kayak rental place, and a small pulperia. We about 2.5 km from the nearest town, Balgue, with many restaurants and stores.
The cabina is in a quiet, rural, traditional setting that feels a world apart from the more touristic areas such as Santo Domingo. Take a walk down the dirt road, and you'll often pass horses, cows, pigs, chickens, even monkeys. If you stroll down the beach, notice the many species of birds and the stunning views of both Volcan Concepion and Volcan Maderas. Getting AroundTRANSPORTATION IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. We are happy to help you to arrange taxis around the island and/or rentals of bikes, motorcycles, scooters, ATVs, etc. Local buses also pass the property 4 times a day to Balgue and on to Altagracia, Moyogalpa, etc. Other Things to NoteThings to bring:
- Flashlight/headlamp. If you plan on traveling at night, most roads on the island are not lit.
- Food. There are a couple of restaurants nearby, but it is recommended you do some shopping before you arrive if you plan to cook!
Also, ask about long term rentals! We are happy to consider monthly rentals at a discounted rate.
