OCOA SPOTLIGHT: Top Places to Visit in Rio San Juan, Dominican Republic

Hermanas, in the next part of our travel series, we're diving into the magical world of Rio San Juan in the Dominican Republic. This hidden gem is a place of wonder, where lush landscapes, pristine beaches, and vibrant culture come together to create an unforgettable experience. Whether you're an adventure seeker, a beach bum, or a nature enthusiast, Rio San Juan has something special to offer.

We spent an amazing time in Rio San Juan during our summer vacation this year. It was truly a gift for us to visit this beautiful part of nuestra tierra with our family. The first time all our kids experienced the beauty of our country together. We created many memories we will keep close to our hearts forever. We also did our first family photoshoot on the island. We’re truly excited to share how we #LiveTheOcoaLife in all the new pictures you see on our website. 

Let's take a journey through some of the top places to visit in the northern coastal town of Rio San Juan.

  • Laguna Gri-Gri: Take a boat tour through this stunning mangrove lagoon. You'll spot all sorts of wildlife and explore caves along the way. It's a real adventure!

  • Playa Grande: Another fantastic beach, Playa Grande is known for its golden sands and big waves. It's a haven for surfers and a great place to catch a sunset.
  • El Ponton: This hidden beach is only accessible by boat but truly worth the trip. It is known for its golden sands and tranquil waters. It's a perfect spot for some relaxation, sunbathing, and swimming. OCOA Co-Founder in El Ponton, Dominican Republic
