"Riu Merengue" Provincia de Puerto Plata Travelogue by soundsgoodtome
Provincia de Puerto Plata Travel Guide: 471 reviews and 1,140 photos
The all-inclusive Riu Merengue resort was an excellent place to stay for tourists, but true travelers will want to leave this place as much as possible if they choose to stay here. I was satisfied with the place overall, but regret only leaving the resort once to go to Sosua. It is nice, however, to have everything paid for before you get here though, with all the time in the world for relaxing and enjoying life.
Here are some of the condos for rent at the resort, which were new and not completed when I was here. The small mountains in the background complete the beautiful tropical landscape. My dad said that the tropical terrain here reminded him of that in Vietnam.
This is part of the resort area where a small lagoon gives an excellent location for swimming and snorkeling. The beach and landscape here is gorgeous.
An overlook of the Caribbean and some beachside foliage.
One of the many pools within the resort, with its own swim-up bar and lots of tropical foliage. Drinking age in DR is 18, great for teenage Americans on spring break.
A gazebo located along a walkway within the gardens of the resort. While I was here I saw a small wedding take place here.
Part of the resort area with the beach and landscape.
Some of the tropical gardens, with the beach seen through the trees. It appears that many of the plants here have only been planted recently and are quite small.
