Luperon Beach Reminds Me Of Boca Beach Near Cabrera

We couldn’t visit Luperon without also checking out the beach.  It has probably been 6 or 7 years since we have checked out the beaches in Luperon so we were curious how they have held up.  We are pleased to say that they are every bit as beautiful as we remember them.  This Grand beach […]
