    Hi My husband and I am moving to a small town outside of Barahona in a week! How are you liking it? How is the weather?
    I have been looking for information on hospitals in Barahona, have you been to any, or know of any good modern hospitals?

    "Good modern hospitals in Barahona"???? That is the saddest post in weeks...Barahona and the entire surrounding area is part of the "deep South" the very poorest part of the DR. There ARE NO good medical facilities there. People from Barahona go to Santo Domingo for care. (Maybe to Azua, tho the "Japanese" Hospital, but I don't know for sure)

    That is not to say that there are no attractions there. IT is one of the most beautiful places around. But it is poor, poor, poor. Articles all last week and the week before in Diario Libre talked about the development of the area, but mostly dreams and what-ifs. The latest talked about 5 star hotels in Azua and Bani??? Yeah, right!! With what water and electricity???

    There are some nice little hotels there, you can look them up here on the board. The beaches are not as nice as the East or North. The hills, back in the area of Neiba are really impressive. So is the Lago Enriquillo...below sea level, with alligators and big lizards and stuff...

    But, for most of us, it is a place to go, see and get out...

    True, there are some nice little hotels, the roads are fairly quiet and mostly safe, the sea has stunning colours, and Lago Enriquillo has iguanas capable of chewing up the average family dog.

    Hello!! Me and my kids are in Barahona.. I love it here. I am from New York.

    I have never heard of the Dr. Thelma that you speak about. I agree with Hillbilly that most will go to the capital when they need good medical care. If you have health problems though, Barahona is not the place... That is my thoughts on it.

    Barahona is a small coastal town in the southern part of the country. Relaxed, Laid back, And with good manners. Nothing else to say.
