There are many tour and excursion companies in Sosúa . Do a little shopping around and ask a lot of questions about what you’ll get for your money. Many tour operators offer local excursions as well as ones that take you as far away as the mountains of the Cordillera Central or the capital city. It is important to find out how long the trip will take, including transportation and activity time at your destination. Choose a different company if the other allows you more or less time (whichever you prefer) at your destination.
