Trip Preparation

In order to hike Pico Duarte you need to be in great physical shape and mindset. It is a tough hike, so it´s important to take into account any medical condition that might jeopardize your expedition.

Yes! We have Valle de Dios which is an easier hike than Pico Duarte. It´s a far less known place but offers a good hike session and great camping experience in the woods.

We also offer Valle Nuevo. This is the highest plateau in the Caribbean region. It´s great for camping, outdoor sightseeing and it is easily accessed with our 4×4 SUV´s.

Once the trip is confirmed, we will have a pre-trip session and share a few documents that will be useful for your preparation. Also, our staff will be in contact with you beforehand for any inquiries and doubts.
