Full description

Start your day with a convenient pick-up from your Barahona located accommodation. Here, your friendly and professional guide be waiting for you and after a short meet and greet, you will take a scenic drive along the coastal road with sweeping panoramic views to Los Patos.  Upon arrival at your first location of the day - Los Patos, you will visit the infamous caves of the Taíno Indians. Los Patos is well renowned amongst the locals as one of the best swimming locations in the area. Here you will be given the chance to take a dip in fresh-water from a mountain river. Continue on your journey to the small port and fishing village of Cabo Rojo. At the Port your boat awaits you, ready to take you on a cruise of island discovery.  Enjoy a boat ride across crystal clear waters for 15-minutes whilst taking in the picturesque island views. Once you have finished your boat ride you will arrive at the Bahía de las Aguilas (Eagle Bay). Eagle Bay is an 8-km stretch of pure white sand beach that is situated in a National Park. Experience an exceptional coastal landscape the likes of which you have never seen with crystal-clear waters that are shades of turquoise and opal-blue. Whilst here you will also have time to go swimming, snorkeling or explore the untouched ecological paradise. At the end of a day full of adventure you will be able to relax with a transfer back to your accommodation in Barahona.

We really enjoyed the excursion, and especially the EXCELLENT experience with Giovanni (the guide) and Peco (the driver). They are both very kind, intelligent people who know the area, DR history, and have interests in both. Everything was at our pace, nothing rushed, and everything just great along the way--and the same for the lunch we had at the beach. And this part of the DR was truly fascinating, with many different eco-spheres along the road, mnay little villages and roadside towns, etc.

Most beautiful beach of the Dom Rep

Entertaining tour with a beautiful program and a wonderful stay in Bahia de las Aguilas, probably the most beautiful beach in the Dom Rep. Away from all the hype of the "all-inclusive" hotels. Miles of beaches, interesting snorkeling and pure peace and relaxation. Small group and good tour guide who also tells you a lot about the country and its people. The stop in Los Patos, a natural pool with fresh water right by the sea, was also special. A cool beer and in the midst of the local population. This tour is recommended to everyone who vacation in the southwest of the Dom Rep.
