My Experience in Caño Hondo, Dominican Republic

We loved it, being able to get up, open the window and have spectacular views of the lush forests and the sea in the background, listening to the birds, and in absolute tranquility it was a pleasant stop on the way. In addition to being able to enjoy the natural pools, surrounded by forests... and we ate great. As we were doing a route on our own, we did not take additional excursions, because we managed the Haitises park and its caves on our own by going directly to the Sabana de La Mar tourist office and it was much cheaper, I will tell you how to do it in the post of Parque de los Haitises and Sabana de la Mar for free. But if you dare to do any of the excursions offered by the accommodation, tell me about your experience :)
