Las Terrenas has a great deal to offer to both second home owners and permanent residents as we have a super mix of nationalities which together with the Dominicans have created a lively and friendly town and resort area. It has its own unique atmosphere and yet remains intrinsically Caribbean.
This whole region has been designated by the government to benefit from huge investments in infrastructure and is destined to become the most modern and integrated tourist area in the country. Las Terrenas is directly benefiting from huge investments including our new International airport, El Catey and the Atlantic Boulevard highway which gives us direct access to Santo Domingo in under 2hrs! This is now complemented by an extension which gives much faster access right to the heart of Las Terrenas, only 20 ins from El Catey airport.
We are the fastest growing area within the Dominican Republic and every client who has ever come to visit with me here has always fallen in love with this unusual but highly Caribbean location. There are beautiful hills with stunning ocean views and flat lands opening onto miles of golden unspoilt beaches. We have per m2 more palm trees here in this peninsula than any other place in the world!
Las Terrenas itself is a little gem of a find. The town was originally a tiny fishing village when it was first discovered back in the eighties.
For a long time it remained right under the radar as it was so hard to get to, but about 25 years ago that started to change a little when the first proper road through the hills was constructed and around the same time came electricity. It was still very slow to develop as the secret was being well kept between a few French and Italians who ventured here. Many of them stayed and eventually have helped to create what is now a thriving but relatively small resort.
Surrounded by miles upon miles of unbroken coastline of glorious wide open beaches it truly has developed in lazy and slow fashion and there really are almost no large resort hotels here. The mix of nationalities living and working here has created a really casual chic beach resort. We have a variety of amazing bars and restaurants in town and on the beach. You can enjoy delicious cocktails and good cuisine, feet in the sand!
Our area is remarkable and is the new hotspot of the DR. Many Dominicans from the capital have now invested in weekend or holiday homes here. This has further fueled the demand for good shops and restaurants as people mainly own their homes here and are not staying in all inclusive resorts.
