Playa Esmeralda is almost 100 kilometres from the Punta Cana Airport and Shopping area and the road trip is becoming longer every week with new traffic lights and much more traffic. Goodness knows where they will find all the necessary staff. The entire stretch of beach from Bavaro to Sabana de la Mar and the nearby Cordillera Oriental is extremely beautiful with the very sleepy town of Miches in the middle . All the tourist developments have been made possible by the far sighted Gustavo Cisneros who convinced previous governments to build the wonderful road to Sabana de la Mar.
