Postcard from Playa La Meseta

February 13, 2014 in Caribbean,Dominican Republic,Places,Postcards

We spent the vast majority of our time in the Dominican Republic at Casa Bonita: I mean, there was an infinity pool and a hammock and someone to machete coconuts for me. No reason to leave!

One day, however, we did decide to go dip our feet in the Caribbean and wandered down to the beach that’s across the street from the property. It’s not in the running for my favorite beaches in the world: it was rocky and strewn with trash, the surf was rough and it was impossible to walk a few steps without inquiries for dinero. Even so, there was still a rugged, rustic beauty to the swaying palm trees, crashing turquoise waves, pastel-colored beach shacks and abandoned fishing boats.

    More beautiful photos. I especially like the one with the beach shack. Its wild, rustic and beautiful all at the same time.

    That one was my favorite by far–it was such a beautiful little place right on the water.
