Barahona

This is the Far West of the Dominican Republic, a place that stands out for its panoramic scenery, surfing beaches, biodiversity, forests and birdwatching. The inland provinces of Bahoruco and Independencia and coastal Barahona make up this destination in the southwest. While places may appear to be close to each other on the map, this is in fact a very large area covering around 3,000 square miles (around 7,500 km2) requiring several days to see its spread out attractions.

Most visitors will arrive by land but charter flights can also be arranged into the María Montez International Airport (BRX).

Bahia de las Aguilas

Tour to the Jaragua National Park in the southwest. Unforgettable experience to visit the white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters near the small fishing village of "La Cueva".

Accessed mainly by boat, this almost three-mile long (4.5km) white sand beach with crystal clear waters provides a striking contrast with the lush greenery of the Bahoruco Mountain Range although both are located within the Jaragua National Park. This is a protected beach and there are no hotels or restaurant there. Turtles nestle by a dry forest, showcasing the same flora and fauna that existed even before the Spanish settlers arrived. It is part of the Jaragua-Bahoruco-Enriquillo Biosphere Reserve that was added to UNESCO's World Network of Biosphere Reserves in November 2002.
