A friend & I stayed at Tubagua for two nights in early April and we were really excited to have a taste of the real Dominican Republic before staying at an all-inclusive Resort during the second part of our trip. The Tubagua Plantation Eco Lodge is a picturesque location in the mountains, but be prepared for more rugged accommodations than you would have in a traditional hotel (outdoor bathrooms, outdoor shower with cold water, sleeping under mosquito nets, etc). Depending on when you travel, plan on rain in the afternoons and sometimes more in the evenings. We were able to take a wonderful hike to some local waterfalls which took about 2 - 3 hours with a great local guide named Jaimin and I would definitely recommend going (NOTE: wear good shoes, bring water, a towel and wear mosquito repellant). If you are not renting a car, there are very few places to walk to nearby. The main road is fairly narrow and winding with a lot of pot holes. Local drivers are very fast, so walking along the road can be dangerous. We also took advantage of lunches and dinners made by the staff and they were great for a non-picky eater, but anyone who has special eating habits should plan for their own meals. Filtered/bottled water & coffee was complimentary which was great, but plan to make a stop at the market before you arrive if you want anything else. Tim & the staff were very nice and accommodating throughout our stay. Overall, I would recommend Tubagua for anyone looking for a unique getaway.
