    Default in Santo Domingo w/ Side Trip to Juan Dolio May 12-16

    Staying in Santo Domingo @ Hotel Palacio plan on doing day trips to Juan Dolio on May 13 & May 14. First time renting a car in the DR but it just made sense money wise and ill only be using it a few times.

    no problems at all driving in or out from SD to JD during daylight hours

    you can drive out of sd towards home at dusk with no problems....

    but avoid driving west into the setting sun

    it is worth it to book one night in the capital and stay overnight and experience the zona at night

    do not miss the beach at guaycanes

    nor the fresh fish and johnny cakes in boca chica

    there is a lovely sorta paddle boat cruise in andres

    and evidently snorkeling by the airport in a national park although i have yet to visit but the water there is clear and fine

    welcome to my island

    enjoy

    Thank you for the information. I am staying in Santo Domingo just doing day trips to Juan Dolio, I will return in the evening/late afternoon each day (depending on how much there is to actually do in this or surrounding destinations)

    Best place to hang out in Juan Dolio in the day time is Don Pedro Beach Bar. to get there is easy. When driving from Santo Domingo when you get to Juan Dolio only trafic light turn right on the corner drive to the end of that street and then go left and park on the second beach parking space and you are there.

    Much appreciated. I open to suggestions for anything else to do on a day trip but I think I'll spend most of my 2 day trips in Juan Dolio & Guayacanes and make a quick stop in Boca Chica. Thx all
