Jarabacoa is a town and the second largest municipality in La vega Province, Dominican Republic. 

History

In 1805, during the Haisian invasion of the cibao, survivors from the massacres of Santiago de los Caballeros and La vega escaped to the mountains of the Cordillera Central and settled in the valley of Jarabacoa. In 1854, a military post was settled and the town was formally founded. On September 27, 1858 the town was incorporated as a municipality.

Geography

Jarabacoa is known for its steady 16C to 22C degree temperature all year round, though in winter it can be as low as 7C. Visitors have baptized Jarabacoa as "The City of Everlasting Spring." Jarabacoa sits about 525 m above sea level. One of the main touristic attractions is the mountains and natural beauty of the area due to its location in the center of the Cordillera Central. It is also one of the main access to the Pico Duarte and the Ebano Verde Cientific Reserve. Jarabacoa has three large rivers, Baiguate, Jimenoa and the Yaque del Norte, the last two merge in the Confluencia, continuing on as the Yaque del Norte, the second largest rivers in the country.
