Located on the north of the Samaná Peninsula, Nagua lies on the highway leading from Puerto Plata to the city of Samaná.Most of the town lies below sea level, which some believe makes Nagua susceptible to flooding that could destroy a substantial part of the town. In fact, during the reign of Rafael Trujillo (1930–1961), the neighboring town of Matanza, also below sea level, was destroyed by flooding caused by a magnitude 8.0 earthquake, in 1946. Many residents of Matanza chose to resettle in the area that is now Nagua. Matanza is now a small town called Matancita, just south of the city limits of Nagua.NotablesBaltimore Orioles pitcher Ubaldo Jiménez was born in Nagua, Santo Domingo.Oakland Athletics pitcher Jordan Norberto was born in Nagua, Santo Domingo.Jeremy "(The JNO)" Garcia actor, singer, and dancer was born in Nagua, Santo Domingo in 2000.Cieguito de Nagua Bartolo Alvarado was a musician known for playing merengue and bachata.Plan your holiday in Nagua and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Dominican Republic trip itinerary builder.
