Getting there & away
By car, Playa Bonita is reachable by a single dirt road that turns off from the Sánchez–Las Terrenas highway. In theory it’s possible to walk from Playa Bonita to Playa Cacao in Las Terrenas via a coastal dirt/mud trail, but it requires clambering over a steep pitch, and some water wading. A taxi ride here is US$10, a motoconcho around US$1.75. There are usually a few motoconchos there when you’re ready to return but it’s best to set out before nightfall.
