At the national level, the territorial extension of the Dominican Republic is 48,671 square meters, while that of the Cibao Region is 17,885 square meters, equivalent to 36.75%.

The Cibao is divided into four (4) sub-regions, which are detailed below with their respective territorial extensions:

OUTSIDE REGIONS TERRIT. (Mts.2) %

CIBAO MOUNTAIN SYSTEMS

It is important to point out that the Central Mountain Range It is the main mountainous system of the entire Dominican territory. Its most important elevations are Pico Duarte (3,087 meters above sea level), La Pelona, La Rusilla and Alto Bandera.

VALLEYS, PLAINS AND BAYS

What determines the great agricultural productivity of the North Region are its different valleys and plains, They have high fertility. stands out the Cibao Valley (sub-divided into Valle del Yaque del Norte and Valle de La Vega or del Yuna). Also very important are intramontane valleys of the Cordillera Central, Constanza and Jarabacoa, as well as the Bonao Valley, the latter with a large rice production.

The coastal plains The most important of the Cibao go from the Northwest in Monte Cristi, passing through Bajabonico, Puerto Plata, Río San Juan and Boba, until reaching Nagua, in the Northeast, with beautiful beaches such as Sosúa, Cabarete, Las Terrenas, Río San Juan and Playa Grande, among others.

are relevant the Cibao bays, that have facilitated the construction of maritime ports, such as those of Puerto Plata, Sánchez (Samaná) and Manzanillo, the latter being the most important and which is the object of a large state investment, due to its strategic location.

CIBAO RIVERS

One of the main characteristics of the Cibao is the large number of rivers that flow, many of them with great flow. Its waters are used to fill the dams (generate electricity and irrigate crops) and to supply the aqueducts of the cities.

Two (2) large rivers (Yaque del Norte and Yuna) are representative of the large number that circulate throughout the region. The Yaque of the North It is the longest river in the country, running 295 kilometers. It begins in the Central Cordillera, passes through Santiago de los Caballeros and ends in the northwest, being key to irrigate farmland. The yuna river follows in extension, with more than 205 kilometers, from the Cibao Valley to the Samaná Bay,

Others that deserve to be mentioned are the Mao river and Dajabón river (both flow towards the northwest zone) and the camu river, that goes from the area of La Vega to the Yuna (Cibao Central).

In the northern zone we find the most diverse environments in terms of temperature. In mountainous places, such as Constanza and Jarabacoa, the temperature is low (and at times of the year below zero). In contrast, in the northwest the prevailing climate is hot.

In other areas such as North Central (Santiago and other cities), Central and Northeast the temperatures are not so extreme, prevailing a humid tropical climate.

As we can see, what favors the fertility and productivity of the Cibao is the diversity of its environments, which facilitates the exploitation of its various natural resources.
