The Dominican Republic occupies the eastern two-thirds of the island of Hispaniola in the beautiful Caribbean. It shares the island with the Creole-French-speaking Haiti located at the western end of the island. The group travels west close to the Haitian border to a town called Matas de Farfan. This area is quite arid because of the significant rain shadow produced by the northern central moutains.
Housing and Dining:
While in the Dominican Republic, students will stay in a retreat center with dormitory style rooms for men and women, generally single to double occupancy; common dining areas for men and women. Breakfast and dinner will be prepared and provided Dominican style.
