Maria Trinidad Sanchez, Dominican Republic

Tourism Information

Río San Juan is a fishing town that has one of the most impressive natural attractions in the north coast, the Gri-Gri Lagoon. This sweet watered lagoon forms a special ecosystem full of groves and a variety of birds.

There are hotels located in the coast, which imitate the old homes that used to be built around the littoral areas.

Playa Grande is an open, white sanded beach. Residents in the area have made it a summer vacationing spot, where the fishing and lobster industries have developed.

Water enters El Caletón Beach under rocks that close the marine horizon, thus forming a natural pool, different from all others in the country. Usually, people who wish to visit the Gri-Gri Lagoon are taken out to sea and then brought into this beautiful beach, entering through the stone arch of the reef.

The Banco de la Plata is located to the north of this beach and acts as a sanctuary for the Humpbacked Whales. This is also the site where the Spanish galleon Nuestra Señara de la Concepción sank in the 17th century.

Nagua, head municipality, is famous for its extensive beaches filled with coconut trees and streams.
