In the Dominican Republic's eastern-most province of La Altagracia Province lies the city of Higuey. A busy, bustling area that has been rapidly growing over the past decade, Higuey is also home to some must-see historical and religious sites.

The Basilica of Altagracia, a Roman Catholic cathedral that was built in 1972, serves as the city's biggest attraction. Despite its fairly recent development, the church holds a strong religious presence and is the place of pilgrimages each year. It is well-known due to its location, where a sighting of the Virgin Mary is said to have occurred. This elevated the church to high esteem, and Pope John Paul II visited the site in 1992.

The Church of San Dionisio is also a site to see, though this one holds significance due to its history. The small church dates back to 1572, making it one of the oldest churches in the Americas, and features Spanish colonialism architecture and a stately bell tower.

Higuey is also home to charming streets, restaurants and markets, all ready to be explored. Though the city may be lacking in some grandeur and sophistication, visitors can experience the city side of the Dominican Republic.

"Our tour guides were Angel & Junior and they were great. They picked us up on time and it ended up being a private tour. Our first stop was at a local cigar shop. The vanilla cigars were great and they gave me an opportunity to roll one myself. The second stop was a primary school where got an opportunity to see what was being taught. The third stop was to a local plantation. Here we were able to see how chocolate and coffee was made. The final stop was to the basilica. This stop really was just a photo op since we didn't get an opportunity to enter."..."

"Professionally on time for both pick up and return in our hotel. Courteous tour guide and would respond to questions as neutral as possible by simply stating facts and real experiences of the countryside people. The tour was a Sunday so there was no chaos... it was a breeze going through the sites Altagracia, San Dionisio Churches and the sites of farms that grow sugarcane, tobacco, coffee and chocolate. The visit to a typical country-side homeowner would showcase how the house is made of iron sheet roof and wood structure for the house. It's really a quick ride of 45 minutes one-way and then 45 minutes or less coming back to hotel. Total tour was 4 hours with a complementary drink of water, soda or Presidente beer!"..."
