..It was surrounded by crystal clear waters
And large trees were an fundamental part
Walking along the Atlantic Boulevard, until reaching what is today called the “Mirador”, we find the coast of “Las Terrenas”, with 22 kilometers (13 mi) of pristine beaches, opens up to the gaze of the tourists with the green color of the big ferns that descend in cascades from the heights, joining the palm trees directly on the beaches, which have remained uncontaminated, in some places, since Columbus’s arrival.
Over the years, the territory has changed little. Below us it opens to our view a typical fishing village, with its narrow streets and colorful wooden houses, where visitors can find all the traditional products of the area, and can breathe the aroma of toasted coffee through all the downtown streets. Also, it can be found numerous exotic fruits in clusters for sale at the entrance of the shops, meanwhile, on the downtown beach, the fishermen sell the products of their daily work. Furthermore, the small wooden boats, brightly colored, offer a beautiful view lying dry on the sand, while in the distance, the sound of the waves breaking in the coral reef comes by.
