Santiago and the Cibao Valley Travel Guide
Plan Your Santiago and the Cibao Valley Vacation
The heavily trafficked four-lane highway north from Santo Domingo, known as the Autopista Duarte, cuts through the banana plantations, rice and tobacco fields, and royal poinciana trees of the Cibao Valley. Along the road are stands where a few pesos buy pineapples, mangoes, avocados, chicharrones (fried pork rinds), and fresh-fruit drinks.
