Jarabacoa is located 50 km from Santiago. Due to its very favourable climate, it is the holiday resort of rich Dominicans who ensure that here we enjoy an eternal spring. At the time of the dictatorship, the region was very fashionable and good families had sumptuous houses built there. It was the destination of fancy honeymoons. From the 1940s, a few buildings are still standing, including the ruins of the outdated Hotel Montana. Today, Jarabacoa is the center of Dominican ecotourism and a dynamic and endearing mountain town. The region offers, in addition to its mild climate and way of life, a wide range of original activities (rafting, canyoning, paragliding, mountain biking, hiking...). An ideal stopover to recharge your batteries, if you are tired of dream beaches. Nature is particularly beautiful and generous in this region of gentle relief. In the heart of the mountains flow rivers swollen with water, sometimes tumultuous, vertiginous waterfalls create fresh and welcoming natural pools and lakes shimmer peacefully in the heart of pine forests. As the road rises, the landscape changes, the relief becomes more tormented. Fir trees quickly replace tropical vegetation and the air becomes lighter.
