Where the river meets the sea
La Boca (the mouth) is located just east of Cabarete and one of the best hidden secrets in the area. A popular spot with locals and tourists, people come to La Boca to swim in the brackish water, kitesurf, windsurf, paddleboard, fish, wakeboard, eat fresh seafood and have a great time!
How do you get there?
It’s a bit of a hike but if you have a car you’ll head east on the main road and hang a left at Camino Del Sol and just follow the road about 15 minutes till you reach the beach. It gets sandier as you get closer so you’ll know you’re on the right track. If you need directions just ask a friendly local. Taxis will also drop you off and arrange for pickup. One of the best ways to get there is to take the Jungle River boat tour from Islabon. You’ll travel down the river, through the thick mangroves and enjoy a spectacular view as you arrive at the beach. Kids are sure to love the ride.
When you get to the beach, enjoy some local fare at Wilson’s Restaurant, serving up fresh caught seafood, chicken and traditional Dominican fare. The restaurant is on the other side of the river, not accessible by foot, so just stand on the beach and wave and they will zip over and pick you up!
