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.

Happy National Merengue day! 🎶👯‍♀️
UNESCO declared traditional Dominican merengue music and dance an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2016.    This cultural expression has influences in Spanish, African and indigenous cultures. It was composed by the “cuatro”, guitar, Güira, and the tambourine originally. In 1870, the “cuatro” was replaced by the accordion and years later the saxophone, bass and piano were added.     
What’s your favorite merengue song?  💃🏻🕺  📸: @juanluisguerra
