Our place is perfect for nature lovers. Jurassic Park is a magical place situated on a small hill, in a tranquil valley, 3-5 mins outside of the main town Las Terrenas, behind us there are two waterfalls with pools - which are extremely inviting, great for cooling off.
We have semi controlled jungle areas which we continue to improve and make part of the attraction of being here.
The closest best beaches are Playa Bonita & Playa Coson at a distance of 10 & 20 mins away, respectively. These beaches are away from the town they are less touristic and very often you can experience long stretches of stunning beach completely to yourself.
Most of our guests don’t arrive with a car so they travel around very easily either on moto-conchos (motorbike taxi) - this is a very good working system here which is reliable, efficient and cheap.
Or, if you prefer to be more independent, then there are a variety of companies that rent vehicles: motorbikes, scooters, ATV quad bikes - this is definitely a more fun and interesting way to get around locally and experience this beautiful environment.
There is a small Comedor (restaurant) within 10 min walk from our place. Great local Dominican food.
There is also a small Colmado (convenience store) selling a variety of basic produce.
Las Terrenas town of course has a big range of supermarkets, fruit and veg shops and a huge variety of restaurants to suit all cuisine tastes.
