Beach walk to Roca Verde – Walk along the beach at low tide, over to the rocks in front of Roca Verde Hotel. Climb up over the large rock formations to discover tide pools hidden away from the main crowds.

Ayacucho – Go through the Roca Verde Hotel and up the hills of this upscale neighborhood. You will catch views of the entire coastline and several islands including Cano Island, a marine biological reserve that is a diver’s paradise.

Riverwalk – One of the unique things to do in Dominical and only Dominical is experiencing the jungle, river, and ocean all in the same place. Take a relaxing walk or energizing run along the Baru River to find some quiet. Surround yourself with the sound of the rushing river and the undisturbed jungle.
