Curator’s statement

My weekend trip to Bayahibe, Dominican Republic, was just the piece of paradise I needed, especially at the Hilton La Romana. The crystal-clear waters and warm hospitality of the locals made my trip such a relaxing experience. We also got the opportunity to explore the nearby Saona Island which added to the charm of the trip. I would love to visit every summer because of the natural beauty, cultural richness, and the lasting memories created during my time there.

Upon arriving in Bayahibe, I was immediately captivated by the natural beauty that surrounded me. The town itself has a laid-back and relaxed atmosphere, with colorful buildings lining the streets and friendly locals welcoming visitors with warm smiles. I booked a stay at the newly opened Hilton La Romana, an all-inclusive adult-only resort that provides many luxurious amenities and comforts one could desire.

One of the most memorable experiences was visiting Saona Island, a tropical paradise just off the coast of Bayahibe. Accessible by boat, Saona Island boasts pristine beaches, secluded coves, and crystal-clear lagoons. I had the opportunity to relax on its untouched shores, take a dip in the refreshing waters, and indulge in a delicious beachside barbecue.

Aside from its natural beauty, Bayahibe also offers opportunities for cultural immersion. The town has a rich history and is home to a vibrant local community. Exploring the streets allowed me to witness the daily lives of the residents and experience the authentic Dominican culture. I had the chance to interact with locals, try traditional cuisine, and learn about their customs and traditions.
