    Granted it's a beautiful, rugged coast. However it doesn't have, for the most part, the beaches that the Punta Cana area has.

    The next area that'll be poached in the near future is the Miches area, and that will be a shame.
    I agree in large part.

    The developments south of Barahona will remain on the smaller scale other than perhaps a larger scale hillside villa community which has been planned for one of the current boutique hotels on the large property they own.

    It will be different at Bahia de Las Aguilas though I suspect, and it was only a week or so back that the first development was announced along with the Pedernales airport development.

    I truly is real and lovely DR and I would rather less brazen developments in this area than those seen on the East Coast (all the way up to and including Miches now), in search of tourist numbers.

    The biggest setbacks are (1) the distance from the Capital (2) the sea is rough in many places with a lot of undertow and (3) many of the beaches are pebbles rather than sand. It will take a long time before there is major tourism S of Barahona, in my opinion.

    Yes, I have been to Paraiso, Los Patos and San Rafael, and it is really nice.

    In reference to point 1, Barahona is actually time wise closer to the capital than say Cabarete now with better roads, and if they build both the planned by passes around Bani and Azua the travel time will be no different than to Bavaro. Good for those of us that like this part of the country and want something totally different to city life and just beaches, but as you say unlikely to see mass tourism anytime soon......except on that beach.

    Ever do any gold panning there? I did and came up with a tiny amount, but its there. If you are ever interested and know of some good rivers to work let me know. I have the gear and decent knowledge on how to extract the shiney. I also am familiar with upstate NY. Family in Glens Falls sister went to college in Saratoga.
