Tour to Larimar Mine and Beach in Barahona
Tour to Larimar Mine and Beach in Barahona
 ()
from: $72

We will know the harsh reality of the miners, while they carry out their "literally" artisanal and rudimentary mining tasks, increasing the risk of accidents, which are usually frequent due to insecurity in mining terms. The mine began to be exploited in the 1980s, employing hundreds of people in the area of Bahoruco and the Philippines who live and support their families from the Larimar trade. The locals, who thought that the rock came from the sea, was due to the fact that remains were dragged and deposited in the sea by the Bahoruco River. This, after an intense search, discovered the origin of the rocks and this place became what would become the Los Chupaderos mine. Same place that the priest had discovered in 1916. Larimar was declared the national stone of the Dominican Republic in 2011 and is a symbol of identity and cultural heritage of this nation.
