Interaction with guests
Besides renting our two condos, on Airbnb, where we live in Punta Cana, my wife and I promote several small, remote hotels in the Dominican countryside that we love. Paraiso Caño Hondo is one of them. Caño Hondo and Los Haitises National Park is a magical place and one of our favorites on the island. We are now sharing this hidden getaway with the Airbnb community. My wife and I have over 20 years experience, combined, in the Dominican Republic travel industry and we welcome you to one of the country's most awe-inspiring, remote corners.
