Hop on an adrenaline-pumping river rafting excursion from Jarabacoa, braving the gushing level-two rapids of the Yaque del Norte. The area’s multiple mountain resorts offer organized trips daily (minimum age 14), led by certified guides. After basic technique and safety instructions, you’ll head out in a raft to experience the DR’s longest river, passing along its lush riverbanks and canyons, toppling over cascades tall enough to make you scream a little. Reservations for river rafting excursions should be made at least a day in advance. You can also request oversized inner tubes for some tubing fun along the river’s calmer side.
