Jarabacoa is in the Dominican Republic.

Understand

Jarabacoa is recognized as the birthplace of the country's ecotourism industry. Situated in the mountains of the Central Cordillera, Jarabacoa is a great place for long horseback rides through beautiful pine trees. Although it can drop to 45 F (7 C) in winter, Jarabacoa nearly always has a pleasant temperature from 60 to 75 F (16-22 C). Locals call this steady climate the "city of eternal spring", which is perfect for growing strawberries and flowers.
