Dajabon - Dominican Republic
is located in the northwest of the Dominican Republic
border with Haiti. The city was founded in 1938 under the name of
the province Libertador. The present name Dajabon dates from 1961.
The province consists of two geographically distinct regions, a mountainous area and plain area. The mountainous region covers the south of the province and is part of the Cordillera Central. The northern province is a flat region, corresponding to the valley of Yaque (or Cibao).
The main river of the province is the border river Dajabon, now called Masacre.
The economy of Dajabon is predominantly agricultural. In recent years, trade with Haiti has become important. The main agricultural products are rice and coffee.
Although the province does not have a tourism development, some rivers, especially in the area of Loma de Cabrera, are visited regularly. The city has few hotels like the hotel Masacre, Gran Hotel Raydan... See all hotels in Dajabon.

Until the end of the year 1950 Japanese migrants continue to settle in the Dominican Republic until the program is abandoned due to economic and political dificulties of the Dominican Republic at the time (Trujillo).
