I often take visitors to the town of Boca de Yuma and the House of Ponce de Leon and the Cave there so they can get a sense of the wealth of history on this island.
Ponce is credited with founding Florida as he searched for the 'fountain of youth', the river caves were where the pirates hid the gold stolen from Queen Isabela's fleets. The cave nearby is incredible and the natural wave pool is worth taking a dip. This town is still untouched, quaint, and very 'dominican'- local food served at cliffside restaurants overlooking the sea. It is a wonderful way to spend a full day exploring this point of the island Hispanola. Donations accepted at Ponces' museum and the cave.
