Your Host

For those you may not know me much just yet. Hola 👋🏼 I’m Flavia, a First Gen Peruvian American solo traveler and the travel blogger behind Latina Traveler. My travels and tips focus on unique experiences, secondary cities, and immersing myself in the culture all from the perspective of a Latina.

Itinerary

Day 1: Santo Domingo

We’ll arrive in Santo Domingo and spend our first night in the Colonial Zone, a historic walled quarter of the city with famed food and music. After we’ve freshened up, we’ll take a guided walking tour or wander on our own with some recommendations from our team – what a lovely introduction to Dominican culture and hot island weather. Bienvenidas!

Day 2: Jarabacoa

It’s time to head to the mountains! We’ll drive to Jarabacoa and settle into our eco-lodge nestled in the heart of the “Dominican Alps”. Jarabacoa is known as “the land of eternal spring” because of its temperate climate and fertile land. A great portion of the agriculture of the Dominican Republic finds its home here.

After a typical Dominican lunch at our eco lodge, we’ll ride horses to Salto Baiguate, an 82 foot waterfall surrounded by nature. The ride will take us through lush vegetation, tropical surroundings and villages where we can see some aspects of Dominican culture. After taking a refreshing bath at the Baiguate Waterfall, pass by La Melaza and enjoy some fresh fruit smoothies at this great local spot.

Day 3: Jarabacoa

After breakfast at the lodge, we’ll hop on a raft and ride down the cool waters of the Yaque del Norte, the longest river in the Caribbean. In the company of professional guides, we will go through canyons and rapids while enjoying breathtaking views. Feel the excitement as you go down some of the most impressive rapids in the country!

Day 4: Cabarete

Now that we’ve had a chance to spend time in the mountains, we’ll head down to the north coast after breakfast. Get ready to enjoy an adventure packed day! This area is known for its majestic coast and gorgeous beaches. Stop along the way to take advantage of 27 Charcos, a collection of waterfalls that we can jump, slide, and rappel down. Have lunch near the waterfalls before continuing our journey to the beach town of Cabarete, famous for windsurfing. Settle into your hotel right on the coast for a peaceful evening.

Day 5: Caberete

Today is all about the ocean. After breakfast, we’ll embark on a full day catamaran excursion with beachside lunch and an opportunity to go snorkeling. After a full day of fun in the sun, we’ll return to our hotel for dinner on your own with recommendations provided.

Day 6: Caberete

Cabarete has so much to offer from adventure to rum to relaxation. There’s something for everyone.

Our included activity is exploring the nearby city of Puerto Plata including a visit to the famed Brugal rum factory and the tram. If you’d like to be more adventurous you can take a windsurfing or kitesurfing course (optional with an additional cost). Caberete is one of the top destinations in the world for kitesurfing so this would be the place! You can also choose to relax and just sleep in and enjoy the beach to wrap up the beach part of our trip!

Day 7: Santo Domingo

After one last swim in the ocean, we’ll head back to Santo Domingo. Visit the cenote caves at Tres Ojos National Park or explore the Colonial Zone’s local watering holes, chic modern restaurants, and galleries of Afro-Caribbean folk art. For dinner, we’ll enjoy a lovely final meal while we reminisce about all the adventures we had and new friendships we’ve made.

Day 8: Airport

Breakfast at the hotel followed by transfer to the airport. See you on the next aventura!

Highlights included:

  • White water rafting
  • Sliding and rappelling down waterfalls
  • Catamaran excursion
  • Visit a rum factory
