The Cibao Valley 2-day tour is based on the route from the 2023 Vuelta al Cibao, an adventure riding rally that explores the Cibao Valley in the north-west of the Dominican Republic and the beautiful scenery around it. It is a rapid pace “rally-tour” aimed at intermediate or advanced riders. We will be covering over 400Kms per day, including highways until the starting points, dirt roads and mountain roads.
This tour starts in Santo Domingo. We head out early travelling north towards the city of San Francisco de Macoris, through Autopista Duarte. After breakfast on the way, we start riding through the mountains up to the coast near Gaspar Hernandez. After a short break, we will travel down the coast until the Jamao River, where we take a backroad towards the city of Puerto Plata, crossing a river and seeing a unique countryside view. We will have lunch in Puerto Plata and then travel along the mountains on the coast towards the city of Luperon, passing through a windfarm. From Luperon we take small roads between farms to reach Punta Rucia, a popular beach among locals, from where we continue our trip west along the coast to Buen Hombre beach. From Buen Hombre beach, we do some intense offroading until the city of Monte Cristi. Finally, we travel by highway to the city of Dajabon where we will spend the night.
On the second day of our trip we leave Dajabon in the morning heading out to the towns of Sabaneta, and Partido, through a semi-arid landscape. The vegetation grows more and more tropical as we move through dirt back-roads towards Moncion, San Jose de Las Matas, and up to the coffee growing town of Juncalito. Finally, we travel from Juncalito to the touristic town of Jarabacoa where we will stop for lunch in the mountains. The day ends heading down to the city of La Vega and heading back to Santo Domingo.
