Paradise Unleashed

by Jeff Harris

Abseiling Away
The Dominican Republic is emerging as the Caribbean's adventure capital, and the adrenaline junkies at Rancho Baiguate will make sure you experience all the thrills the country has in store. Their base is an eco-friendly 27-room Spanish ranch retreat high in the lush mountains, outside the village of Jarabacoa. Once you're through whitewater rafting, mountain biking, and climbing Pico Duarte (at 10,164 feet, the highest point in the Caribbean), perhaps canyon hiking and rappelling down the 40-foot waterfalls of the Jimenoa River will pique your interest. Don't worry—there's someone holding the other end of the rope. Usually.
