Things worth to see/ do in Paraiso / Best of Paraiso
Amazing beaches. Beautiful landscape, with the picturesque beaches on the one side, and mountains in the background. Cheapness. Internet cafe with the fastest net access in the whole DR (probably). Proximity of Los Patos (and its swimming pool). General, amazing, laid back atmosphere, total chill out. What could you need more 😉 ?
