Boca de Yuma is a small village just south west of Punta Cana. It borders the National Park of the East and is traditionally a fishermen village. Every day fishermen row their small boats into the bay and fish the traditional way with small hand nets. High on the cliffs there are numerous restaurants offering the very fresh fish. In the past Boca de Yuma was a popular hiding place for pirates, who sheltered in the Yuma river and raided the ships passing on their route to Europe. Roberto Cofresi was a famous pirate who operated from Yuma. The river itself is teaming with wildlife and you can see wild iguanas on the banks.
