The scenic road from San Vito to Paso Real, recently repaved, travels along a high ridge with sweeping valley views on either side. Half-way between Boca Limon and Las Vueltas, stop to enjoy a refresco and the views at open-air Restaurante La Carreta. As the road descends, the wide valley of El General River opens up before you, planted with miles of spiky pineapples and tall sugarcane. Few passing opportunities require a lot of patience, especially in the valley if you find yourself caught in a slow-moving convoy of trucks hauling pineapple and sugar cane.
