Playa Chinguela Los Cacao beach

Ultimate guide (October 2023)
Playa Chinguela Los Cacao is a hotel beach on the north coast of Samana Bay in Dominican Republic. The beach is nice, but tiny. In addition, resort activities are limited. So you may get boring very soon. During the high tide, sea water comes close to the sunbeds, thus leaving a very narrow strip of sand. On the other hand, the hotel has a free daily boat transfer to Cayo Levantado paradise island located just nearby. And from mid-January to mid-March, there is a whales season in Samana Bay being the main tourist attraction during this period. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]

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.
