This day-long trip to the Mina de Larimar, the world’s only larimar mine, near Barahona, Dominican Republic, is a truly interesting and awesome spectacle, as we see how this gorgeous stone is mined whilst also exploring the lush natural landscape that surrounds the area.
Open to everyone
This day-trip I will guide you on promises to be a fun, fascinating, educational and interesting adventure, as we head to the world’s only larimar mine, Mina de Larimar, and explore how this distinctive and beautiful stone is found, and also take the time to appreciate the surrounding landscape, scenery and terrain, including some amazing waterfalls.
Larimar is a very rare rock that is only found in the Dominican Republic, and is known for its rich and vivacious light-blue colour. The area close to Barahona is where the mine is located, and it is often turned in to jewelry for sale in the Dominican Republic and wider Caribbean.
We will meet in Barahona itself, and from there we drive along a road that offers amazing views out over the coast, before reaching the mountain where the mine is located.
At the mine we will be shown around and have the opportunity to see how the Larimar is extracted, and you will even have a chance to look for Larimar yourself!
After visiting the mine we have some spare time to relax by one of the myriad of tranquil, idyllic waterfalls in the area, and to wander around and take in some of the sensational natural landscape of the area.
The trip finishes back in Barahona, and hopefully you will be satisfied at having learnt more about the truly special stone of larimar.
Book now to learn more about this gorgeous stone in a beautiful location!
Meet in Barahona, drive to mine, explore mine, natural swimming pool, drive back to Barahona, finish.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
