One of our most popular items, our biodiversity tour allows you to experience first hand the amazing biodiversity found in the Dominican Republic. Join us for 2 very interesting days in the forests and coastlines of our unique island.

Day 1 takes us to explore the natural wonders of the pristine Jima river.  The Jima Waterfalls are located in the outskirts of  the city of Bonao, less than an hour and a half from the city of Santo Domingo, and right at the foot of the Caribbean’s tallest mountain range. We embark on a soft hike through a nature trail that takes us through the heart of the rainforest, along the trail lie many natural pools, all perfect for taking a relaxing swim before reaching our final destination, a magnificent 50 foot tall waterfall.

We continue on our way and head north for the small fishing village of Punta Rusia, one of the best kept secrets in all the Caribbean. This spectacular region is one of the most pristine and undeveloped parts of the Dominican Republic. Some of our best preserved reefs, and one the largest mangrove forests in the Antilles can be found in the outskirts of this small town. Here we spend a relaxing night far away from the stresses of civilization.

The next day we take a 20 minute boat ride from coast, and we take you to the tiny island of “Cayo Arena” where you can spend the day taking some sun and enjoying a wide array of  beautiful tropical fishes by the reef.  This is a place that can be truly be described as paradise. After spending a good part of the day here, we enjoy a delicious fresh seafood meal on the shore.  This will undoubtedly be 2 days of biodiversity and natural beauty you will never forget.
