In Nagua – typical dominican town

[...Read the full version of my guide to the real Dominican Republic...]

So I'm leaving today Maimon, charming town somewhere in the middle - of nowhere in Dominican Republic. And I'm going to Nagua. With the map road shouldnt be that difficult; unfortunately I got lost around 50 km after Maimon, and instead of going to Nagua, I went to San Francisco de Macoris...Fortunately, just in San Francisco, it is still just 3 pm. So if I will go fast on my 110 cc demon- bike ;-), I should be in Nagua still before dark. There is still a chance...Thank god that the road from San Francisco de Macoris to Nagua is in good condition and I can easily ride here 80-90 km/h. Somewhere in Castillo, few dozen kilometres before Nagua the rain catches me. Another stop. Just to wait until it will stop raining....

I'm in Nagua finally around 5 pm. I see some beaches - after all, it is coastal town, surrounded by them - but its dirty. Really dirty, polluted with trash. Ah these Dominicans.

The next day - still in Nagua.

And the day in Nagua is slowly fading away. After "getting things done" - like some small motorbike repair, oiling the chain and so on , I finally go to the beach.
The closest to Nagua beach - Poza de Bojola is unfortunately very polluted with trash. What is nice here though is [ more...]
