Moca - Dominican Republic
the main town in the Espaillat province, in the northeast of the
Dominican Republic. It is believed that its name
derives from an Aboriginal word that was used to designate where
the city lies.
Moca was an important city in the history of the Dominican Republic. It was the birthplace of the Constitution of Moca in 1958, which aimed to restore the rights and freedoms of citizens and create a fairer country.
This is a province of agricultural development with agricultural products like coffee, cocoa, bananas and cassava. This is one of the most developed provinces in poultry and pigs, with their agro-related industries.
Because Moca is a coastal city, there is not a significant tourist activity, but in the coastline of the province to which it belongs. In the City of Gaspar Hernandez , just minutes from the city of Moca and within the same province Espaillat, there are several beaches that are part of the tourist hub Rio San Juan -Puerto Plata .
At 15 kms from the city there is the Rim Mountain Hotel, otherwise the hotel offer in Moca is quite limited.
Moreover, in the mountains of north, between the town of Jamao north and the district of Jose Contreras, Villa Trina, there is an unspoilt natural beauty and potential major attraction for ecotourism and adventure tourism and mountain tourism.
