    Then you get back on the boat and take an hour ride to Cayo Levantado.
    On the way we passed what looked like a restaurant on a beach inside
    of los haitises. There was one big boat anchored there, and some
    smaller ones on shore, and I cannot find the name of the place in
    google. Would really love to go back and just enjoy the day on that
    beach inside of Los Haitises instead of CL. After 4 visits, I've had
    enough cayo levantado for a while. It's nice when the water is clear
    but the past 2 visits the water was murky.


    You are referring to Cuerva de la Arena. I am not sure why they did not stop. It is usually part of the itinerary. It is worth stopping next time. The old agricultural port is also interesting. The posts remain there from the Trujillo era where they had a lot of forced labor and shipped a lot of agricultural products from the region. Now it is just a great place to birdwatch.

    I want to Thank all of you for your posts & pictures. Hopefully I will remember this thread next time when I go down. I will have a lot more time on my hands to go on these adventures. I am retiring and I am leaving for Cabarete a few days after Christmas this year, I will be staying at least 90 days possibly more. I know that is a whole different discussion. This is absolutely my favorite thread on here.

    Good morning from Playa Rincon!

    Solo campers out here last night. Not only were we not robbed or accosted or anything bad, but when our car got stuck in unexpectedly soft sand, several locals didn't hesitate to dig us out and only one, the guy with the truck who pulled us out, asked for some pesos. He drove from the town after one person went looking for a truck, so I didn't mind. Less than a tow fee by a long long shot.

    Just your usual reminder that if you get out of the f-ing cities, this country is f-ing awesome


    Now can someone bring me a coffee?

    Just went to Miches with 24 of our teachers and took a catamaran tour to playa Esmeralda and snorkled a sandy reef about a mile of shore. Had a great time and the boat crew thoufh our staff were Venezulanos so the girls had fun with that. Playa Esmeralda is very nice and isolated.photos to follow.

    Esmeralda is nice and if I was in Punta Cana I might go more often but it's far from Santiago. But it doesn't hold a candle to bahia las √°guilas!

    Esmeralda:

    Only one photo?

    Yes, when you go to Rincon, stay on the well traveled path because it is tempting to drive closer to the water, but many people get stuck. I would like to camp overnight at Fronton someday, under the shade of the rock cliff.
