Since Green Living Guy is adding more green travel content, we thought it best to set it off with a trip to the Dominican Republic. This event was fully sponsored, and we thank them for it.
Moreover, the North Coast region, which includes Samaná, Cabarete, and Puerto Plata, comprises pristine beaches, lush green valleys, and palm-covered mountains. The beautiful landscape provides a wide range of sustainable attractions unique to the Dominican Republic. From nature trekking to snorkeling, this was an ideal trip for travelers with a passion for exploration, adventure, and supporting the local economy.
In the Dominican Republic we were able to:
- Slide down waterfalls at the 27 Waterfalls of Damajagua
- Snorkel the coral reefs of Sosua Bay
- Experience the ultimate in watersports in Cabarete, the Kite Surf Capital of the World
- Learn about sustainable and aquaponic farming practices of area resorts
- Participate in a surf lesson
- Tour the Amber Mine
- Go for a swim and hike at Blue Lagoon Cenote
Took in the sites from the Teleférico Cable Car in Puerto Plata
