Located in a charming fishing village in the far south-west of the country, on the Haitian border, Perdernales is 74 miles from Barahona and 198 miles from the capital of Santo Domingo. A pedestrian bridge marking the Haitian border crosses the river to Anse ŕ Pitres. Offering a few basic and cheap hotels, this little town with a Wild West feel is the ideal starting place for exploring the region, and in particular the beautiful beach of Bahia Las Aguilas and the high mountains of the Sierre de Bahoruco, which culminate at 2,350m.
