The highest point in the DR and the Caribbean. It should be done at least once to live the experience. A guided hike could be reserved on the park or through an agency (which most of the time is better). Any person (with no major...More

That is extremely expensive. You shouldn’t pay more than $300-350 DOLLARS. You can find better deals than this, as low as $150 per person.
