I want to help you plan your trip to La Romana Dominican Republic, because it is a good idea to do some researching. We are going to find some good deals on All Inclusive Resorts packages, and there are many of them right on many Dominican Beaches.
This is the third largest city in this country that shares with Haiti the Island of Hispaniola.

The most important feature of La Romana is a recreation of a Mediterranean style European village located atop the Chavón River in La Romana, Dominican Republic. It is the most popular attraction in the city and hosts a cultural center, an archeological museum, and an amphitheater.
The project was conceived by Roberto Copa, a former Paramount Pictures set designer. The amphitheater holds many performances. We saw there the Cirque de Soleil and many singers like Jon Secada.
One of the amazing beaches of La Romana
La Romana offers many beautiful Dominican Republic Beaches on the mainland and on several islands, here are a few of the best.
This beach is divided in two by a peninsula called La Punta.
It has a variety of features; anchorage for fishing boats, a quiet beach for swimming and sun tanning, and a few more little beaches and coves.
The public section of this beach is between two important hotels. Tourists staying a the hotels may relax and use the facilities of their resorts while enjoying this long and beautiful beach.
It is a busy beach during weekends.
Located offshore of La Romana this is an ideal place to visit on a day trip by boat. You’ll find many white sands beaches and warm clear waters.
It is used by some cruise lines during season. The island is a must for snorkeling and scuba diving.
It features some of the finest beaches of the Dominican Republic, most of them privately managed by hotels, meaning you may enjoy all facilities for a day on the beach for swimming and sunbathing.
This is the beach we went to when visiting Casa de Campo many times during the years.
This beach offers all facilities you may expect. You’ll find all kind of water sports or boat renting to go to the mouth of Rio Chavon.
Casa de Campo Dominican Republic our favorite
It has an estimated population of over 130,000. It has its own airport, public transportation, and it is the center from which commerce and tourism emerge.
If you are lucky enough to be staying at Casa de Campo Dominican Republic, you will find yourself within a stones throw from Minitas Beach.
If you happen to stay at some other hotel or resort, there is a
regular shuttle that will get you there. This beach
has a lot to offer besides the fact that it is in La Romana.
Whether you take the shuttle or rent a golf cart to get there you will find an abundance of water activities.
