A Recent Review of this guide

We had an amazing day with Jose - would highly recommend him as a private guide. He took my husband and I to Los Haitises National Park, stopping at various local sights along the way there and back. We learned so much about the DR - and got to see some amazing countryside, beautiful beaches, and quaint villages. The boat ride through the mangroves and bays was great for photography, and the lunch at the local restaurant was a highlight - they were so generous with all the wonderful food they prepared!
