I found myself swimming in crystal clear water, listening to merengue, and feeling the warm sun on my face last Saturday afternoon, when a few of the interns and I went to Boca Chica beach.Given that the Dominican Republic is an island in the Caribbean, I would have never thought that I would have to drive out of my house thirty minutes to get to a beach. Thirty minutes and a $5 US dollar cab ride later and we arrived to Boca Chica. The trip was worth it! I don’t remember the last time I had seen such clear waters. Not to mention the sun that was beaming heat which complemented to the coolness of the ocean.
