The Southwest of Dominican Republic

Beaches in Dominican Republic
What I liked the most about the Dominican Republic was our trip down to the southwest on the Haiti border.
There was much to see and experience from animals, the changing terrain and how the locals have adapted and get by on living frugally.
The vegetation is sparse especially in the Barahona area where we stayed for a few days. Our second night was in Pedernales where the roads seemed to get worse as we got nearer the border.
Worse are those darn bumps they put in the road every 100 yards or so. I guess it does cut down on road accidents as drivers don't care too much about rules of the road.
Hey, the beaches were quite lovely with no other humans in sight for miles in Enriquillo. It's really worth the long drive from Santo Domingo to see these magnificent sites here!
