San Pedro de Macoris holidays dish out toothpaste-white beaches, along with baseball matches, rum tasting and mystical caves.

Bountiful beach resort

You’ll find San Pedro de Macoris on the Dominican Republic’s south-east coast. With a hefty helping of powder-white beaches, golf courses designed by pros, and city sights in easy reach, it’s a please-all kind of place. The hotels here push the boat out on the luxury front, too.

The sweet stuff

Like rum and sugar? San Pedro de Macoris will be right up your street, as they’re both produced in this neck of the woods. The Centro Historico Ron Barcelo factory runs tours where you can see how it gets from the plantations to your piña colada. Alternatively, the mysterious Las Maravillas caves are well worthy of a daytrip.

A sporty side

From high-balls to baseball. The originally American sport is massive in these parts, too. A handful of big names in baseball were born and bred here and, when you consider the size of the population, it’s home to more major league baseball players than anywhere else in the world. Head to the stadium in nearby La Romana to watch a match.
