I was last week at the restaurant and I have to say the seafood was great, I enjoyed the oceanview from deck... is amazing...the sunset, the service, everything and one of the most important thing close to San Domingo. Definitely worth the visit!

Boca Chica is a great get away from Santo Domingo. The beach area in Boca Chica is great the relax and enjoy a quiet day during the week. It becomes more hectic on the weekend yet still a lot of fun.

I stayed at the Sheraton Hotel which is a 40 minute drive from Boca Chica. It went quick though. I brought my children and we all had a good day at the beach. The people were nice. The fresh fish was excellent as well

Dominican version of Connie island without the rides!! A very fun, clean, local spot! Lots of Europeans in the winter! Be careful wondering at nite! Stay in hotel, most have nice bars to hang out in with other patrons!
