Rafting

There aren’t many places to experience real river rafting in the Caribbean. But in the Dominican Republic, our high altitude mountain towns are blessed with fresh water rivers flowing down with sufficient force from high summits. A river rafting excursion along the Yaque del Norte—the longest river in the Caribbean—departing from Jarabacoa, is an unforgettable experience to be added to your bucket list of adventures around the country.

While available year round, rafting is best done during the summer months, when the water levels are sufficiently high for an authentic experience.

Dominican Republic

Gushing through the center of the country, the longest river in the DR offers a unique chance to go river rafting in the Caribbean.

 
 
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.
