Scuba Diving Certification at Bayahibe, Dominican Republic
13 December 2014
I selected this town for my vacation/PADI certification site because it faced the Caribbean side. Other town on the north shore and east shore were facing the Atlanta Ocean meaning windier, stronger current and rougher condition.
Plus, Bayahibe is a very local place compare to those mega inclusive resort in Punta Cana and elsewhere. The village was about like 10 blocks. However, it got many nice restaurants and several dive shops with two ATM.
Seems like every night, people gather at the local bar with very loud regatone music. Children are heading popcorn for sale for 1USD.
The beach or more like a shallow water port is very close to the village. You can see many dog, cat, and chicken running around.
