Here it is–the final book cover for my first edition of Moon Dominican Republic for Moon Travel Guides.
I am thrilled that one of my photographs was selected, and even more delighted that it shows a scene from Puerto Plata, one of my favorite areas of the DR.
The image shows a couple of motorbikes parked along the city’s Malecon or waterfront boulevard, while its owners take a dip in the Atlantic sea, the breeze blowing and waves crashing nearby.
A golden beach sits below, of course, but I love that it shows a more authentic every day scene than a touristy one (and that’s why I also love writing for Moon Guides).
For those who missed the other exciting news on Facebook, this edition will be printed in full color. No drab black and white! From the front section to the back, the book will be illustrated so you’ll have a clear idea of the various regions, hotels, food and more.
