Curious about the Dominican Republic? Join me this whole week–I’ve taken over my publisher Moon Travel Guides’ Instagram feed, from February 6 through 12. I’m sharing some of my favorite photographs of romantic spots around the DR, along with some insider travel tips. See you at – be sure to follow the page, and also feel free to ask me questions over there this week! There will be a new photo every day.

Moon IG’ers! I’m excited to share some of my favorite romantic, scenic spots around the #DominicanRepublic this week. One of them is located in the fishing village of Las Galeras, on the northeastern Samaná Peninsula. Plenty of visitors flock to Las Galeras for boat tours to famous Playa Rincon, but you can skip the rush (and the bumpy Atlantic ride). Instead, take a short walk within the village to the lesser frequented La Playita. The shallow water, wide beach, and chill vibe make it a standout. There’s a small local restaurant and bar on site.
