  • Always I have visited the Payano Portillo since she was a teenager. The soft sand, the length of the beach is with calm waters, that emotional. To take long walks with our dog. The landscape is great. It is a place that everyone should visit him.

  • Beach has modern buildings, of good quality in its travel, and is very extensive. You can walk from the Bahia Principe Hotel to las Terrenas without difficulty.
