- From Santo Domingo: take highway 44 (which is highway 2 after Barahona) to Pedernales. About 4 km before the entrance of the town, you'll see a sign pointing to the right to Hoyo de Pelempito and the small town of Las Mercedes. Take that road.

- From Pedernales: take highway 44 until you see a dirt road to the right of a bridge (see the first picture), about 4 km after the entrance/exit of the town. Take the dirt road until the end and then turn left on a paved road (Alcoa road), then follow the road.

From Hostal Doña Chava it took us about 1.5 hours to get to the visitors center.
