San Jose de Ocoa
General atmosphere / feeling of the place
San Jose de Ocoa is located in the south of Dominican Republic. To get there, you have to drive through some really bad roads - that better one leads there from the south (Bani).
From my diary:
"So I'm in San Jose de Ocoa. On the road from Cruce de Ocoa to San Jose de Ocoa warning signs every few hundreds meters: "slow down, road under construction", "slowdown" etc. Few years ago the hurricane Noel totally flushed away this road...As for the moment (2013) it's not that bad..until you reach the 7th km before the city.

Getting into San Jose de Ocoa/ Roads Info
There are 3 roads leading to San Jose de Ocoa and all of them are in bad condition 😉 The best from them leads from Cruce de Ocoa (Bani, Azua) to the city. Why is it in better quality than the others two ? Because it has only 15 km ...of usually not so good road. But that length it's more easier to drive, than, lets say, 50 km on the potholes.
