re: This is not an airport.

Reply to @dominicanpilot: Thanks for the update. The 2008 ICAO Location Indicators doc lists an MDBL as the identifier "Boca Chica/Batey Luisa". Is there a chance that there used to be an airport (or perhaps a heliport) somewhere in this area?

This is not an airport.

This is not an airport and is not used by commertial nor private pilots. there is a new airport not active yet for The Marvelles Caves, but it's aproximately 15 NM east from this location.

The Herrera Airport Has Been Closed to All Traffic And It's Only used as a Landmark

Closed to all traffic?

According to the Wikipedia article, this airport closed in 2006 when airline traffic moved to La Isabela, and the military blocked the runway. There are a lot of planes on the apron in the Google satellite photo, though β€” could the photo really be three years old? More info would be appreciated.

Principal air base of the Dominican Air Force

This is the main base for the Dominican Air Force. It originally opened in 1953 as Trujillo Air Base, and was renamed to San Isidro Air Base in 1961. According to Wikipedia, most of the fixed- and rotor-wing fleet is based here.
