    Question Jarabacoa???

    On a recent trip a family frind drove me to a place in Jarabacoa that was AWESOME but I cant recall the name of it and would LOVE to return... Maybe if I explain it a bit someone can help me out here...

    Ok, so the place has a skinny metal bridge that crosses you over to a kinda bar/club/restuarant where theres a balcony overlooking a man made kinda natural pool, on either side you have rocks with cascading water and its a spot where the locals hang out... No expensive and very chill.. HELP PLEASE!!!!!

    Could be the Jarabacoa River Club?

    Thanks but this seems more like a resort and not really a local spot..

    At the rear of the Gran Jimenoa there is a small bridge that crosses the river to a bar and spa....could that be it?

    I think it might be the disco in the Pinar Camado (sp?) area.

    Mekkizm,

    Based on the info you provided, I'd have to agree with Ringo and Frank: it's the Jarabacoa River Club!

    Pinar Camado is the name of the area that a disco along the river is located, according to my wife who is originally from Jarabacoa. We saw an act called Krispy there some years ago. We just don't recall what it is called. You reach it by going over a metal bridge. The locals will hang out in the water. We did a cookout there a few years ago. Others have said that they believe the name is the Jarabacoa River Club.

    My guess is it's the Vista del Yaque, about 5-7 miles outside Jarabacoa on the way to Manabao. The facilities are on the distal side of the suspension bridge. The parking lot is on the road side. There are 2-3 colmados/drinking places along the road. It's very popular with the non-moneyed Dominicans, and there is a village behind it. It's interesting to see folks ride/walk motos across the bridge.

    It's recognizable by the white paint on the distal bank's concrete retaining wall with the stones painted green...
