Our Limon Beach and Lagoon tour from Santo Domingo takes you to an incredible virgin beach in one of the most beautiful and undeveloped regions in the Dominican Republic. Limon Beach is a diamond in the rough located in the mountains of the northeastern Dominican Republic. Located in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, Miches, an area which very few tourists get to see.
A lush area scarcely populated mainly by fishermen and farmers, Miches is home to some of the most beautiful little known beaches in the country. We begin by visiting Limón Beach, a vast expanse of gorgeous virgin coastline, with only palm trees lining the beach as far as the eye can see. It’s the perfect place to get away from it all and totally disconnect from civilization. Here you will be able to just relax for a few hours, explore a bit if you like, and swim in the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
Next we enjoy a delicious typical Dominican style lunch prepared by women from the nearby community at a small local restaurant, followed up by fresh local fruit, and warm cups of local coffee. All according to real Dominican traditions which always makes for a memorable authentic experience.
The rest of our day together is spent on a private boat ride exploring the calm waters of the Limón Lagoon Nature Preserve, the largest fresh water lake in all the Caribbean. This is truly a place that exemplifies the immense beauty of the region. The lagoon is one of the best places on the island to see water birds and in the winter months the presence of migratory birds, including thousands of ducks, is spectacular. This serene body of water is also home to a diverse population of fish, which sustain the economy of many of the area’s local villages. A relaxing boat ride around the lake allows us to appreciate the flora, fauna, and awesome scenery found here. The lake seems to be perfectly nestled between the coast and the “Oriental” Mountain Range, almost as if purposely put there. All of this makes for a truly special tour, and one that we highly recommend for all nature lover’s looking to get away from the crowds for a while.
