DAY 1 – Santo Domingo –> Barahona
In the morning, a taxi will pick you up at your hotel in the capital, drive you to the bus station, and take care of your tickets. (Four daily departures)
Bus trip takes around 03h15mns.
First towards San Cristóbal, then the road is passing through an agricultural area with villages surrounded by mangos, breadfruits, coconuts and bananas plantations. After Baní, the road will take you uphill, through a barren countryside covered with cactus, yellow agaves, thorny bushes, acacias and mimosas. In Hatillo, you will have a nice overview of the “Bahía de Ocoa”. You will enjoy a nice panoramic view of the “Rio Yaque del Sur” with its palm-trees. This unique river is the only source of life for this very dry area. You will arrive then in the capital of the province of Barahona, named also “the pearl of the South”, and located near the “Bay of Neiba” after crossing a fertile and moist valley.
We will be waiting for you at your arrival and drive you to the hotel you choose.
Included meals: none
