I am a hiking lover and being recommended by a friend of mine, I decided to do this hiking during my visit to DR. I did 1 night 2 day excursion with Rancho Baiguate (I don't recommend it, especially if you are a solo traveler)....More

This baby had been on our list for a while. Known as the highest mountain in the Caribbean it's definitely worth the lengthy hike. Watch out for the last 4km. They will appear harder than you think! ;)

Hi there everyone. We are a party of 3 going over to Puerto Plata this August and since it's our first time in the Dominican republic, we don't really know how to go about organising our Pico Duarte hike. We are thinking about the Valle Del Tetero route over 3 days but I wanted to ask how do we go about getting from Puerto Plata to La Cienaga and also if anyone knows a guide who speaks English (hopefully with a number for us to call)? We don't want to go on an organised tour as it gets rid of a lot of the excitement I guess but more importantly most guided tours are about $400 per person which is a lot for us... Please let us know if you can help by giving us some form of contact to a local guide. Thanks in advance!
