Pearls of the Caribbean - Bayahibe, Hacienda Dominicus ResortWe had a fantastic time, a glorious vacation and the fabulous cruise was perfect! We will definitely go on a cruise again! Maybe next year ...
So enjoy the last video of Bayahibe
Not so famous like Punta Cana and not so crowded like Boca Chica, the La Romana/Bayahibe region in the southeast of Dom Rep still offers beautiful beaches and nice resorts.
For the next 7 days we stayed in Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus, three miles from the fishing village of Bayahibe.
Part 1: The resort area - what a lovely place! This resort offers peace and seclusion. Everything is surrounded by extensive tropical gardens. Fountains spin & fly in just about every corner of the main complex. I loved the tame Flamingos.
Part 2 (start around 05:42): Sports & Fun - over all days, there was a wide variety of land and watersports and other activities.
Part 3 (start around 08:16): At the beach & around - the resort is situated directly on Bayahibe beach. We enjoyed often to grab a cocktail or two from the beach bar. A nice place to sit and watch the world go by.
Part 4 (start around 15:13): Sunset and the beautiful display of sky color that occurred shortly after the sunset. Just one of them ...
On March 27th we had to fly home ... but we definitely left a little piece of our heart in the Caribbean.
Note: It's a 18 min HD video and a pretty large file (300MB+), it takes awhile to load! If the player stops, this could be because the server is overloaded, your Internet connection is slow, and/or overall Internet is slow. You may need to pause it and let the video load a bit more before watching it straight through.
