      La Rancheta was a wonderful place to stay, with spacious bungalows constructed in a jungle garden setting. The owner, Ron and his wife were incredibly hospitable and helpful.

      After seeing our first booking, and turned that down. Ronald welcomed us with open hands to his La Rancheta. Wonderful place where you feel that Ronald and his family is happy to have you there and takes good care of you. The breakfast was amazing, and the swimmingpool with natural flowing water was a delight. We strongly recomend it!

      The next day of travel from Playa Limon to Las Galeras was no easier than the last. I spent three hours crammed into the back of a decaying and dilapidated gua-gua (shuttle bus) with visions of my impending death flashing across my mind. People were getting on and off, grabbing bags of vegetables, luggage and whatnot, chatting easily with each …

      ... but there aren’t many ways to
      make even a pretty basic living. The settlements all look a little
      hardscrabble, but maybe in a warm climate you don’t need much more to survive
      than a roof over your head and enough income to buy food. The peninsula is
      actually one of the main growing areas for the D.R.’s significant production of
      organic cocoa, but growing agricultural commodities usually doesn’t provide
      much income for too many people.

On the day when we went on our trip, people from other hotels were going to spend the afternoon on our island's public beach as part of their excursion. There's quite a few shops and restaurants on there during the day. We can go on there if we want to, but there's no point when it's busy with intruders and all the sellers try to sell you stuff. It's much nicer when ...

      After an epic journey to get here, we arrived last night about 8 to the hotel. The transfer took about 4 hours and we got to see quite a bit of the Dominican Republic! We saw all kinds of things on the way: lots of palm trees, the coastline, jungley bits, dusty towns, run down shacks, Jackie Nails, people standing in doorways looking, shops in sheds, lots of ...
