Drive along the coastal road out of town to San Cristóbal. The villages are surrounded by mango and breadfruit trees, coconut palms and bananas. After Bani, the road climbs uphill through increasingly barren land. Columnar cacti and yellow-flowered agaves grow here. In Hatillo you will see the "Bahia de Ocoa". The road leads into the mountains, through a dry and stony land dotted with cacti and agaves. Then a wide view opens on the big river Rio Yaque del Sur, with palm trees in the river valley. It is the only river oasis in this dry area. You will reach the provincial capital, Barahona, located on the "Bahia de Neiba". This is your base for the next three days. This is where the famous pirate Cofresí is said to have had his lair.
You will be picked up at the bus station in Barahona and transferred to your hotel.
