Plantation Trails

Tucked in the Dominican Republic’s fertile hills are vast agricultural plantations. Take a tour from Punta Cana to the hills of the La Altagracia province, where you will taste chocolate and learn about Dominican coffee from bean to cup. Similar opportunities exist in Samaná’s El Limón plantations. In Puerto Plata’s hills, women-run cacao plantations such as Chocal offer full-day immersion into the world of chocolate, from hiking amid cacao trees to processing chocolate into bars. In the southwest, fruit trees help produce marmalade from mango, passion fruit, and guava.

Hiking our campo will almost always lead to sweet discoveries.
