ELIAS PIÑA.

This remote province has the longest part of the Dominican-Haitian border, so you can find many colorful Haitian markets and manifestations of
the Haitian-Dominican culture here that are peculiar to the border region, including an incredibly dynamic, sexy, and humorous version of "Gagá" that is unique to Elias Piña-Gagá is an African-inspired dance ritual done today in various regions of the Dominican Republic to celebrate Easter Week and sugar-cane harvests.

There are many caves with Taíno art in the Hondo Valley, lush freshwater swimming holes among the province's many mountain rivers, and a beautiful colonial-era church and sundial in the town of Bánica-it is here that you can cross over to Haiti and back again in Taíno-style dugout canoes.
