About this Tour


We depart Santo Domingo at  07.00 am for a 2 days private trip and travel through San Cristobal where we have a short round trip through this historic town. You will  get some coffee and fruits and will have the opportunity  to see the cathedral and the house of former 

Dictator Trujillo which has a nice view over the whole province of San Cristobal and part of Santo Domingo.

Further on, instead of using the highway we rather take the coastal road in order to see all the beaches of the Westside of Santo Domingo like Playa Najayo, Playa Palenque and Playa Nizao. 

We stop at each of them to take some pictures and if you whish you can also go swimming there.

After Playa Nizao we come back to the highway which brings us over Bani and 

Azua to the biggest city in the South-West which is Barahona.

Here we can have our lunch or we wait a moment, because the next 30 miles include the most beautiful landscapes, beaches and views of the Dominican Republic, where we of course will make our stops to make pictures, swim in the sea or/and in rivers and cascades and of course we can have a simple lunch there too. 

San Rafael - Paraiso - Los Patos - Enriquillo After leaving this paradise behind us we cross the peninsula of Oviedo, enjoying the great “Parque Nacional de Jaragua”, in order to get to Pedernales, the last  Dominican city before the Haitian border.

Here we will have dinner and stay the night.


On day number 2 we get up early to have a nice Dominican breakfast. Approx. 08.00am we are leaving to Cabo Rojo where we should reach at about 09.00am.

There we change clothes ( swimming suites ) and get on a boat and after an astonishing 20 minutes boats trip we reach the incredible beautiful and endless seeming beach of Bahia de las Aguilas, where we lay down in the shadows of some Guayacan trees ( no palms ) and enjoy the Cristal-clear waters and the snow-white sand for about two and a half hours. 

Back in Cabo Rojo we normaly have lunch because they have fresh lobster if you want and other nice seafood directly from the source.

After resting and/or a little walk up to the “Mirador” where you have an spectacular view over the whole area, we drive back to Enriquillo where we drive up to the mountains, the so called “Sierra de Bahoruco” which we have to cross over in order to get to “Polo” a little town where we have an interesting landmark the Polo Magnetico ( because it looks like car drive upwards without the motor ) and from there down to Cabral near the Laguna the Rincon.


About 20 miles from Cabral our circle closes near Barahona where we join the highway again to drive back over Azua, Bani, San Cristobal to Santo Domingo.
