Despite being the largest city on the west coast of the Dominican Republic, Barahona remains a place that tourists can stop for a quiet vacation away from the major resort towns.  Tourism is not a primary industry, but those who do make the trip do with a sense of adventure.  Activities center on the great outdoors with coastal and mountain hikes, birdwatching, and surfing operating as the primary sources of entertainment.
