  • Description


    Hello, I am Dwight I am 33 years old Dominican man.
    I live in my farm in front of the beautiful Layou River.
    Since the hurricane Maria I decided to restart the building of my house from zero.
    So now I raise animals and make grow food. And I think about evolving my farm by adding some activities like a surf camp, or camping for backpackers and welcoming the volouteers.
