I have discovered Punta Rucia or shall I say the road that gets there in 2011. Casa Libre came as recommendation from a friend. I knew beforehand what to expect but the surprise was total when I saw the setting, the constructions and the reception from the owners. I have been there alone, with my twin or with some girlfriends.... More

What a treat. Your rooms are bungalows on stilts overlooking the most amazing ocean view. It is primitive with open windows and shared bath, but a little piece of paradise. Gerry will make arrangements for you to be picked up early to visit Cayo Ayenda where you can snorkel or scuba. Gorgeous reef with amazing fish. You can rent your... More

After several years traveling and living in the DR, this is by far my favorite B&B, and Cayo Arenas (not Cayo Levantado, as a previous traveller stated) is one of the only coral reefs still ALIVE in the island..

Punta Rucia is a small virgin Beach village (about 500 population) about 75Km down the road West off Puerto Plata... a 2 to 3 Hr. Trip from Santiago STI or Puerto Plata POP airports. It's also the sail off point to a small sand "island" about 20 boat minutes away called "Paradise Island" or Cayo Levantado". That sand dune really,... More

This is a place which is well worth a visit. It is a bit tricky to get to but is well worth it. A quirky little guest house with very individual room designs. Our room was at the top of the hill and had amazing views out to Punta Rucia and the ocean. The hotel does not have the mod... More

“Cuarto Mariposa is also known as Honey-Moon room. Just a cozy, isolated cabin with balcony overlooking the bay with rocking chairs and a hamock.”

“There are two guest buildings: A secluded single room cabin with a little less sea view but more privacy and a two room cabin which faces the ocean. There is a detached cabin with the bath room with a shower (no hot water). Food is served at the owner's cabin's covered balcony overlooking the ocean above the 2-room cabin.”
