    We stayed on the beach in a beautiful villa. Nice snorkeling with a few small coral garden with colourful fish. A few more fat: a barracuda, a ray, of beautiful blue surgeons benches, a few lobsters... Beautiful beach for swimming, relatively clean, except after picnics of the Dominicans on weekends... Unfortunately, they leave everything on site. I must say that there is no rubbish on the beaches in the area...

    I didn't not or spend my article on Las Terrenas. Every year I enjoy during season d ' winter in this haven of peace. Friendliness of the Dominicans, wonderful climate... Could make you an effort about the cleanliness of your city. Lot d ' filth on the streets, dogs who tear the trash bags. Made l ' purchase of containers that hell, made efforts on the cleanliness of your city, maybe will you read my request, in which case I thank you
