Horseback riding is an intrinsic part of Jarabacoan mountain life. Ride your way to the area’s popular waterfalls, including Salto Baiguate and Salto de Jimenoa, or alongside countryside paths and vegetable plantations, and take in the area’s spectacular spring weather and mountain scenery.
A pine grove lines the fairways of this golf course in the rolling hills of Jarabacoa. It is the only one of its kind in the Dominican Republic. It is part of the Quintas de Primavera residential development on the outskirts of Jarabacoa. Because of the many changes in elevation, it offers different challenges than most golfers are used to. Local folklore says that Robert T. Jones helped design the course on a napkin.

Soar in the skies over Jarabacoa’s mountains and waterfalls! It’s an unforgettable experience as you fly around clouds, drawn about by the steady winds, taking in Jarabacoa’s spectacular mountains, green pastures, and the gushing waters of Salto de Jimenoa all far below your feet.
The perfect waterfall and jade pool await at Salto de Baiguate-cascading down 25 meters (82 feet), tucked below a deep canyon yet easily reached via a series of wooden steps that lead directly to the water.
Hop on an adrenaline-pumping river rafting excursion from Jarabacoa, braving the gushing level-two rapids of the Yaque del Norte, and experience DR’s longest river, passing along its lush riverbanks and canyons.
