Suitability
Juan Dolio
There are narrow stretches of fine, light sand shaded by palms. Near the village "centre" the sand is not very clean, and is strewn with driftwood, seaweed and odd pieces of litter. The water is mostly shallow and protected by an offshore reef. Larger hotels provide a choice of water sports. Juan Dolio has a small, unsophisticated commercial centre with scattered shops and services. Other small local plazas offering basic services are dotted along the coast road, running parallel to the highway. The nightlife here offers hotel bars, live shows and discos, there is a number of independent offerings, some with local "merengue" music, there is also a casino. For food the hotels provide the main options as there are few acceptable eateries outside. Don't drink the tap water (wash teeth with bottled water) and avoid salads or cold meats that are displayed without the benefit of chilling devices.
