Rating Low Key But Safe
Beaches Boca Chica beach is most popular with the locals.
Nightlife There are a number of clubs and bars in Santo Domingo itself.
Best For Those who will be satisfied with ok beaches and who are looking for a good value vacation with some gay nightlife.
  • Santo Domingo has a surprisingly active gay community with some decent clubs.
  • All the resorts offered are not in Santo Domingo itself but along the coast to Boca Chica.
  • Because the airport at Santo Domingo is also relatively close to the resort areas at La Romana and Punta Cana, tour companies that fly into Santo Domingo offer resorts in all three locations. So if you want to be in Santo Domingo, check to ensure your resort is actually located there rather than La Romana or Punta Cana.
  • If you want excellent beaches, consider Punta Cana as an alternative.
