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 or 25 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 airport, 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 explosive night life that includes an impressive mixture of locals and tourists. It is popular with 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 most luxurious found anywhere, smaller boutique properties, as well as budget motels and apartments all within a few blocks or set directly on the beach.
