Las Terrenas: Must-Visit Destination 2014
The beauty of Las Terrenas, a cozy coastal village situated on the country’s northeast region, is truly beyond description and the friendliness of its people a true blessing.
Because of its popularity among national and international tourists, Las Terrenas has all kinds of accommodations to fit the most demanding of international and national guests.
Las Terrenas can provide guests accommodations at the Peninsula House (selected to appear on the magazine’s Gold List of the best hotels in the Caribbean) to small and comfortable villas and family beachfront facilities such as the establishments like Hotel Alisei.
Jet Blue airlines flies in two weekly direct flights from New York City, and a modern highway through beautiful terrain makes it an easy destination to reach from Santo Domingo’s Las America’s international airport, situated some 90 minutes away.
The Condé Nast Traveller magazine also recommends visiting Cosón, the region’s most beautiful beach, and visiting the Sucre Salé Café where one of the main treats is an expresso café accompanied by chocolate bread.
