Aura Beach House, Juan Bolio

Juan Bolio
Dominican Republic
Tel: 809 526 2319's insider take:

It's almost impossible to find this chic, authentic beachside bar and restaurant without specific directions from a local, but it's well worth the ten-minute drive from Boca Chica (and even getting lost on the way). At lunchtime on weekends, well-to-do Dominican families from the capital come for fresh-off-the-boat fish and delicious carpaccios and ceviches, served at portable tables right on the beach. Later, fashionable young hipsters hang out on the bedlike lounges on the sand, sipping chinola cocktails (made with rum and fresh-squeezed passion fruit juice) and listening to DJ-spun beats. Very sexy.
