Halfway between the capital of Santo Domingo and the second city of Santiago is the town of Bonao.  Long thought of merely as a stop-over from one of these major destinations to the next, in recent years it has been recognized as an important attraction all its own, with several cultural and historic landmarks and numerous natural spots to explore.  


In case you like to explore other cultures and places, you might enjoy visiting a museum during your vacation.

Casa Museo Tiburcio is a museum towards the middle of Bonao. This unique structure was developed by the artist Bonao Cristhian Tiburcio who had dreams of creating a house where the architecture and every piece of furniture was a piece of artwork. It is certainly a sight to be seen, where everything from the windows to the toilet are unique forms of artistic expression.

The chart just below provides more details on some the museums you might enjoy in the area.
