Guests can zip-line through the rainforest, go scuba diving, take a shopping trip to the nearby towns of Las Galeras or Las Terrenas, or simply enjoy the jungle sounds, sights, and smells from their tree house. Guests can also go whale watching, hike to the gorgeous waterfall El Limon, go whitewater rafting, and take many other adventurous trips. While enjoying the beautiful surrounding jungle, guests do have the chance to access the Internet at the town just twenty minutes away. There is also cell

Whether you go for a special occasion or just for a getaway from life’s stresses, the Dominican Tree House Village Hotel offers peaceful and beautiful access to the Dominican Republic’s natural wonders as well as exciting excursions for any needed diversions. ▶▶
