is a "local" beach on the Caribbean coast of Dominican Republic
. While the east end of the beach is quite beautiful, the west coast is rather mediorce with ugly buildings. You should also know about the seasonal problem of algae. So as a vacation spot, this place is rather depressing. Probably, it makes sense to get here only for the locals living nearby. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. 
There are almost no hotels in Guayacanes, that are presented in the international booking systems. However, if you walk around the town, you'll definitely find cheap rooms for rent. Find hotels in Playa Guayacanes
How to get there 
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
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. Find flights to Playa Guayacanes
When to go 
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.
