So it all started when I asked God to give me a sign and guidance in life. And then my friend called me and asked if I wanted to go with a group of 4 on the top of Pico Duarte. I was hesitating at first, but I knew it instantly that this is the answer and the Call. So... More

After thinking and dreaming about it for the past 6 years I finally decided to put my plans in action. Pico Duarte is the highest mountain in all of the Caribbean Islands, and it is located in the central portion of the mountain range known as the Cordillera Central La Ciénaga to Pico Duarte This route starts in the small...

This baby had been on our list for a while. Known as the highest mountain in the Caribbean it's definitely worth the lengthy hike. Watch out for the last 4km. They will appear harder than you think! ;)

Yeap, doesn't matter which way you take, climbing to the Caribean ceiling is long and phisycal demanding. Is an amazing trail, with beatifull views overlooking highest mountains of the Caribbean. I had only 2 days, so I started from La Cienaga and instead of the typical 3 days (1rst day to La Compartición, 2nd climb the peak and back to... More

Duarte's Peak in the Dominican Republic is a challenge. Mind and body connect with nature in the most serene isolation from the citadine noises and its familial loudness. I arrived to Santiago de los Caballeros airport from Miami and stayed one night at the Hodelpa hotel Centro Plaza. The following morning I took a taxi to Jarabacoa and from there,... More

Why would anyone like to hike for 3 days (we did the relax tour), sleep on a wooden floor, shower with ice cold mountain water and reach physical limits?! I initially did it because I wanted to see if I could manage to hike for various days in a row and to test my limits. Start was from Rancho Baiguate... More

This was definitely one of the hardest things I have done in my life, physically and emotionally. I don't think I will go there again and climb it, but it was definitely worth it. I would highly recommend it. And try to do at least half of the trip walking, it would make you appreciate everything a bit more. It... More
