General atmosphere/ feeling of the place

I discovered Maimon during my motorbike trip in Dominican Republic. Maimon is a typical hidden gem of dominican province and rural areas, almost not described at all in any guide. Please don't confuse Maimon city with Maimon Bay...

Maimon is located in Monsenor Noel province, near the Bonao and Cotui cities. You may say that's middle of nowhere; and it's kind of true. The biggest attraction of the Maimon city is nearest lake - Presa de Hatillo, which is really beautiful and is located in National Park, created just few years ago. When I first saw that lake I instantly thought to myself - "I spotted something really beautiful in this country".
