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.
