Playa El Portillo beach

Ultimate guide (June 2024)
Playa El Portillo is a beach in eastern suburbs of Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic. In fact, this is a series of perfect tropical beaches. So you will always have the opportunity to walk along the coastline, and even to find relatively secluded spot. Entry into the water is sandy. However, coral reef is located not far away. So the snorkeling is also great here. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]

Hotels [edit]

In Portillo hotels, rooms' fares range from US$150 to US$900 per night. In most cases, this upscale price tag is quite reasonable. Since these are either five-star all-inclusive beachfront resorts, or luxury villas.

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.
