About Boca Chica.
Boca Chica is a quaint town in the Dominican
Republic, set along one of the finest beaches in the world, just 10 minutes east by car from
Santo Domingo airport
minutes east of the city of Santo Domingo's western edge. The beach is known for its crystal
clear, calm, and shallow waters, its proximity to both the capital and
its integration of tourism and local Dominican culture, and its abundant night life. It is the most complete, un-gated
beach town in the country, where both Dominicans and Tourists alike come to
relax in the sun, play, dine, vacation, or seek romance.
Boca Chica is particularly popular with singles because of the
life that includes an impressive mixture of locals and tourists. It is
families that have small children because of the calm shallow waters. It
also draws in the wealthier crowd because Boca Chica is home to some of the
finest dining in the country and is an easy drive from the capital city of Santo
Domingo. And there is still plenty of places to
stay, dine, and play for
those on the most strict budgets.
Boca Chica also makes a terrific
outpost for first time visitors, offering the safety and convenience of
all-inclusive resorts with local culture, interaction, and entertainment right
outside their properties, a feature no other area of the island offers.
Lodging options range from the
luxurious found anywhere, smaller boutique properties, as well as budget motels
and apartments all within a few blocks or set directly on the beach.
