Montaña Redonda or Round Mountain is situated in Miches, El Seibo province, the Dominican Republic. One of the most regular ways of visiting the mountain is through organized tours. Those usually include transfer, the hike up the mountain, and lunch. It's an excellent option if you want to do a half-day trip and enjoy yourself without worrying about driving. However, getting to this year-round destination by car might not be a problem if you are coming from Playa Bávaro or Santo Domingo. Just remember that if you plan to visit Montaña Redonda on your own, be ready to pay around $2 for the entrance fee and $8 for an optional truck to the top, in case you don’t want to walk.

The mountain may not seem to be related to the rest of the Dominican Republic as it is a far cry from the image of white sand, turquoise waters, and coconut trees. Montaña Redonda is a unique place due to its height. Once you reach the top, you’ll witness all the scenic beauty of the surroundings. You’ll have a chance to take in the views of the Samaná Bay area, the entire coastline with beaches like Playa Rincón and Playa Esmeralda as well as the eastern mountain range and the Limón or Redonda lagoons.

To relish these views, the top of Montaña Redonda has hammocks and seats. But if you want to fully savor the experience of Montaña Redonda, you can do it from one of its swings. The swings are not dangerous because they have all the necessary safety measures. If the swings aren't your thing, just try out one of “flying brooms.” Photos on which you are saddling up one of them will make other think that you are flying above all the beauty around.

The facilities of Montaña Redonda are now more than 20 years old, but owing to social media, it has become more popular thanks to the photographs people take on the swings.
