Las Américas Highway runs east along the coast from Santo Domingo to La Romana. Midway are well-established beach resorts such as Juan Dolio, and inland, Sammy Sosa's hometown, San Pedro de Macorís. Much farther east are Punta Cana and Bávaro, glorious beaches on the sunrise side of the island. At the end of the highway lies the luxurious Casa de Campo resort (along with its marina and shopping village, Altos de Chavón) and its airport, both in La Romana. There are some gems among the small number of resorts in Bayahibe and Dominicus Americus. But Bayahibe Bay, all juxtaposed with fishing villages, is idyllic and truly memorable.
