Valle nuevo, Constanza

With an average elevation of 1,200 meters, Constanza is one of the highest villages in the Caribbean region. With that impressive height, cold temperatures appear, undulating valleys covered with thick pines, cabins with chimneys for single-digit night temperatures and an agricultural landscape that reveals a surprising distance from the beach. The vast vegetable fields of Constanza (where potatoes, cabbage, corn and carrots, among others) are grown, flowers and even strawberries can be seen while driving through the province. Its mountainous villages have magical views over these fields, which has earned Constanza nicknames such as “the Switzerland of the Caribbean” and “Enchanted.”
