Experience La Romana

- One of the best golfing destinations in the Caribbean
- Picturesque beaches with calm waters and sugary white sands
Picturesque landscapes, incredible natural beauty and excellent recreation options ensure that vacations to La Romana are filled with equal parts adventure and relaxation. World-class golf courses like Teeth of the Dog and Playa Nueva combine challenging holes with stunning ocean views. Nature lovers can retreat to Saona Island and its protected park where the Dominican Republic's national flower, the Bayahibe Rose cactus bush, naturally grows. There is no shortage of tranquil beaches to unwind along, with sandbanks and calm, shallow waters creating ideal conditions for novice swimmers or children to splash around safely. Be sure to sample authentic Dominican bites from local vendors like fried fish with plantains or yaniqueque — a fried flatbread. As you explore La Romana, you'll pass by iconic sugar cane fields which are a nod to the city's industrious past as the home to the largest sugar mill in the Americas in 1970s.Read more
