Rio San Juan

Río San Juan’s sleepy attitude and location on a calm mangrove lagoon has nurtured a business-owning French expat community. Several of the north coast’s best beaches are within easy driving distance, and diving and snorkeling are nearby.

Headed east you’ll hit two of the country’s most beautiful beaches, Playas Grande and Preciosa, and continuing further you’ll come to Cabrera, a sleepy town of stone houses with colorful shutters, flower boxes and well-kept gardens, as well as lavish vacation homes owned by Dominicans and expats.
Laguna Gri-Gri, which shares the same ecosystem as Los Haitises south of Península de Samaná, was once Río San Juan’s claim to fame. It gets crowded on weekends but you can still find some serene spots among the mangroves – but polluted waters make swimming unwise.

Never could we have imagined the impact the current global health crisis would have on the world. In these unprecedented times, and now more than ever, the safety and health of our valued guests is of paramount importance.

Recent global travel warnings, coupled with airline carrier cancellations, have compelled us to make the difficult decision to close our Hotel Turtle Lagoon beach. Therefore, we will not be able to accept new arrivals effective immediately.

The Caribbean is resilient. We have always come back better, stronger and more passionate than ever. We promise this time will be no exception!

We will take this time to make further enhancements to our hotel, so that we will continue to surpass your expectations and provide you with fantastic vacation.

When the time will be right again, we will be ready to welcome you back with open arms and a warm smile.

We will inform you soon...
