Friendly Colombian musician Andrés has cultivated a rural Dominican village experience at this new hostel spread among several colorful traditional Caribbean clapboard shacks. Despite being a mere 10 minutes' walk from Macao Beach, it feels worlds away, with cows and horses grazing in pastures across the road, and chickens, cats, dogs and a community donkey roaming freely.

There are four rustic private rooms with mosquito nets and a five-bed dorm along with simple, bamboo-walled bathrooms and a guest kitchen. Village kids hang around and a community chef whips up Dominican meals with advance notice (RD$150). Guests can take surf lessons, horseback rides or kick back in hammocks during the day, and sit around the fire at night with Andrés and fellow musicians providing the soundtrack.
