An idea that was born out of sheer curiosity. Out of the need to go deeper into my roots. Out of the need to discover what’s hidden and buried on under the Unknown. I must confess that I’ve never been to any of these places before. Dominican Republic inexhaustible incomparable unparalleled Dominican Republic Has it all. And much more. Barahona San Rafael Beach/River. This area of the country is just packed with a lot of places in which you can enjoy the beach and the river on the same location. We are right now in Playa Los Patos. We are still in Barahona. Things are looking dope around here. My camera alone won’t do this place any justice so let’s get the drone up.. in 3…2…1…GO! Two things that I’ve noticed while traveling in this region o f the country, particularly in the province of Barahona is that the water of the rivers is really cold. They’ve told me a couple of times that is the same for all the rivers around. the other thing that I noticed is that they all have unbelievably crystal-clear water. You can literally see everything: rocks, the fish and whatnot. We’ve just left the province of Barahona. We just arrived in the province of Pedernales and here, Arroyo Salado is going to be the first gem we explore. @Aquamanrd: where does the name Arroyo Salado comes from, you may ask. Salado means salty. But it’s not completely salt water. It’s about 90% fresh water and 10% salt water. There’s a lot of mosquitoes in here, look who I’m rolling with my repellent on deck. Our camera man is full of them. Let me help you out. The good news is that the place is free, you don’t have to pay a single cent. It’s a lonely place, not a lot of people come here. I recommend that you don’t come by yourself. I’m not trying to scare you away, but it’s better to come in groups to stay safe. Keep in mind that Arroyo Salado is located in the city of Oviedo, in the province of Pedernales. A lot of people think that this is part of Barahona, when it’s not. Stay away from those mosquitoes. We are now in Laguna de Oviedo. We’re still in the province of Pedernales, and I must confess that this region, the southern part of Dominican Republic is unknown to me. So please feel that you are here exploring with me this beautiful southern part of the country. The one region that I never explored before. I know nothing about this region. I mean, I didn’t know anything because now I’ve been exploring it for the past few days. In every corner, a little plot of land that tells a story. A lake, a river, a beach that paints with unimaginable colors the aroma of paradise. Someone that smiles. An innocent cloud that waves the Sun good-bye. A mosquitoe that playfully makes you feel alive. And a little ray of nature that makes you believe in the power of dreams. Unexplored bits of heaven. World renowned beaches. A land that harvest smiles like no other. And that sings harmonically as soon as the coffee starts smelling at the break of dawn. The eyes that contemplate your beauty are enchanted forever. You are… You are that and much more than that.. MY HOMELAND! Well, guys it’s time to say good-bye from Pedernales. We’re on our way to Bahia de las Aguilas and we’ll camp on the beach before we take a boat in the morning. Thanks for watching guys, I’ll see you in the next video. Ciaoooo!!! It’s about time.. we learn to appreciate what’s Ours.
