    I like the layout of the map. But think it isnt correct , or at the least is misleading , because route 21 doesnt not go to Sosua...and one would think that if they stay on the main road they will get to sosua...but that isnt the case...maybe there is another road that shoots off to sosua from Jamao Norte.....but it isnt as big as route 21....

    to the OP...take 21 all the way to Route 5(the road doesnt continue north anymore at that point) then turn left and you are on your way to Cabarete...

    Direcciones/Directions

    From Cabarete you go east until you come to the big intersection. Turn right.
    Follow that road until it ends (Moca). Turn left.
    When you come to a TEXACO STATION, be careful, there will be lots of traffic coming from your right. Blend into the traffic going into Moca proper.

    When you get to the first light, turn right. You will go through the center of Moca--a real traffic mess, but fairly short--and come out on the avenue that goes to the Duarte Highway. There you turn right again. You are almost there!
    When you get to the highway, be very, very careful. Turn left (east) and get to your parent's place.

    Good Luck.

    If you want to go to Santiago you can make a right at the Texaco station. But for La Vega Hillbilly's way is best.

    I was under the impression the directions were needed FROM the parents house...TO Cabarete.

    My bad. So let's go backwards. It is a bit different.

    You go towards Santiago (west). When you get to the messy cross roads that goes to Moca--be very careful there--you go right! Follow that road all the way until you come to the end, in front of the Palace of Justice, I think. Anyway it is a major intersection and you have to go left or right. YOU go LEFT!.

    Follow that street untilyou come to the Fortaleza--big green thing on your left front. I think there is a light there now. You again turn left.

    Now, you go downhill to a light and go straight. Uphill and then level out and you come to a fork in the road where you go to the right--You will see the TEXACO station I mentioned before on your right.--

    Go straight on that road - be careful there are some speed bumps there-- until you come to an intersection with a road coming from the right. There are signs pointing --> JAMAO, and you take the right. Follow that road up and over the mountains and when it ends you turn left (west) and get to Cabarete.

    Sorry, I read the post backwards---it happens with hillbillies and lefties...

    here is a picture of the rock slide that closed off route 21 not far from San Victor. This apparently happened after we had this thread going last week..and the road was closed for a few days. This is what is still left on the side that it came down from..the stuff on the road , was pushed off to the right and down the mountain.



    here is a picture from the top of the mountain. It is a spot a few people have asked where it is...well this trip i checked...this shot is taken 2.2 miles past the green military station, while heading to Cabarete from Moca



    here is a picture of the river..it hadnt raine din a few days and the water was a nice greenish blue....I took this on my way to Cabarete on firday april 6th. On the way back on saturday afternoon, it was a muddy mess from the nights rain.
