Discover Rivers Dominican Republic

The immense width of numerous rivers such as the Yaque del Norte, the Yaque del Sur or the Yuma dramatically affect the Dominican Republic's scenery. The expanses of water and lush greenery of El Gato, between La Romana and La Altagracia, charmed Francis Ford Coppola; the director even shot a few scenes for the film 'Apocalypse Now' there.
