Pedernales is for explorers. Highlights of a visit are the uphill drive to see the low valley known as the Hoyo de Pelempito and a visit to Bahia de las Aguilas, a beach still unchanged since pre-Columbian times. This coastal province borders with Haiti. It is usually bundled together with visits to the attractions in Barahona, Bahoruco and Independencia province route of the southwest. Figure around two hours to drive in from the city of Barahona that is 84 miles (135 km) away. The María Montez International Airport (BRX) and the Cabo Rojo domestic airport in Pedernales serve the area.
