Playa Cayacoa beach

Ultimate guide (October 2023)
Playa Cayacoa is a beach of Samana town in Dominican Republic. There is also an upscale resort nearby, but the beach is open for everybody. The beach is mediocre, but it doesn't matter here. Local killer feature are boat tours to Samana Bay to watch whales - in the winter half of the year. Probably, this is the main reason to visit this place. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #61 of the "Best beaches in Dominican Republic"

Hotels [edit]

Bahia Principe Grand Cayacoa is a good five-star hotel, but almost not presented in the international booking systems. However, if you only want to see the whales, feel free to choose any suitable hotel in town. The beach is definitely not worth to visit this place.

How to get there [edit]

Main airports in Dominican republic: Punta Cana international airport (PUJ), Santo Domingo international airport (SDQ) and Puerto Plata international airport (POP).

It is convenient to use a taxi, which is relatively inexpensive. For example, a trip from south to north of the country can cost $100.

To move between the small towns you may use minibuses (shuttle buses). Locals call them gua-gua. One ride costs a few dollars. Bus stations are called parada.

There is also good bus transport system in the country. We recommend Caribe Tours and Metro companies. Buses are brand new, and travel from one end of the country to another will cost about $10.

Though all prices given above are in U.S. dollars, it is better to have local money (peso) when traveling around the country.

When to go [edit]

Feel free to relax in Dominicana any time of year. The sea is warmest in summer, but the heat is the most intense as well. And there is also a hurricane season from June to October. On the other side, the winter weather is more comfortable, but seawater at the northern coast is too cold that time.
