On our journey we will stop at a local school, which is sponsored by the Compay Safari team, in a community project that benefits children from different towns with basic education.
We cross vast fields of sugar cane, which are very common in the East of the Dominican Republic and represent one of the largest sources of income in the country.
We will visit one of the most important religious monuments of the country, the Higüey Basilica, a modern Catholic sanctuary contributed in honor of the Virgin of Altagracia, patron saint of the Dominican Republic.
