This place is amaizing . If you want to be in contact with nature and be away of your routine do not hesitate to come and enjoy with Gio, David and Jorge. We really enjoy the 20 hours we spend there. We stay in Palm 2 (It is a tree house). We’ll be back.

The resort is breathtaking and is located approximately 20 minutes away from the main road. Between the rivers/pools, tube slides, arcade room and the views, my family and I enjoyed a great relaxing couple of days. The food was fantastic and I highly recommend ordering different things each meal. The massage was glorious and extremely affordable. A few tips: 1. If you do not have a 4x4 vehicle, call the resort and they will arrange for a ride to/from the resort. The road is steep and rocky and a regular SUV will not cut it. 2. If you want to leave the grounds during your stay, there is a 30 dollar charge for the entire party (can be paid with a card). 3. There are no TVs or phones or wifi. If you must use your phone, bring your own wifi.

We booked the Tree House and oh wow. You have a balcony with a hammock, table and chairs and 2 more sitting chairs. We were overlooking the river. You also have a hammock and sitting area prior to entering your room. All of the activities are included such as: horseback riding, tube ride and river tubing. It is very relaxing. You have to make sure that you take the full board because you are between 20 -30 minutes from the town where you park your car. You do not want to leave anyway because it is too beautiful. They are very isolated. You are in the woods. The menu is ala carte and the portions.could be a little more. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

If you are looking for an adventure in the deep woods Rancho Platón is the option. It is an ecological hotel located in a mountain in the town of Paraiso, Barahona. To get there you need to have a 4 x 4 vehicle or you need to be pick up by the hotel in the town. There is a very rudimentary road to take you there and you have to cross a semi-dry river (with current), but no danger is involved. At the top of the hill they have cabins built out of wood and small streams goes under them enhancing the deep wood sensation. They have lot of things to do including tubing in the river, hiking, horse riding, etc. Two things to be aware: wifi is available, but is very weak, and humidity in the rooms generates that typical smell that sometimes we don't like. The food is average.
