Head to the beach to relax in a hammock, dive into the warm waters, or enjoy a peaceful day of snorkeling. Glide through the surf in a kayak, take out a paddleboat for two, or enjoy some adventure with windsurfing or kiteboarding lessons. Hike or ride horseback to El Limon Waterfall, where refreshing pools and caves are waiting to be explored. Take a short boat ride to Los Haitises National Park to wander through lush rainforest and mangroves and discover hidden coves along the coast. Enjoy an amazing day of diving, stopping at colorful reefs, underwater caves and tunnels, and even breathtaking pinnacles - some almost reaching the surface from more than 150 feet to the ocean floor. For a fantastic day of world-class sport fishing, charter a boat from Las Galenas, near the Puerto Rico Trench. To top it all off, make sure to spend an evening in the lively village of Las Terrenas where you can dine beachfront in intimate and authentic Dominican Republic restaurants.
