This Area start develop after the architect Reynaldo de Leon Demorizi (Tony) make his internship for the University in the ’80s. The vision was creating a place where the people that were visiting Los Haitises National Park stay and have lunch. After creating a small Restaurant with his Local Partner Orlando, they saw the opportunity to also have some rooms for renting to the tourist that want to stay in this wonderful area next to the main entrance of Los Haitises National Park.

As all starts were really difficult even to go with the material to the small business. They worked with the farmers creating a road with the sedimentary rocks from the edge of Los Haitises National Park and Cano Hondo area. In the First stage, they did not have an idea how to name this place but all visitors were calling the area Paradis. So, this was the name that Visitors gave to this place. Cano Hondo Paradise. ( Paraiso Cano Hondo). In the 90s were created CA- NO – H- O- N-DO. yes, they created 6 rooms and the name spelling Cano Hondo Comunity. That is why Nowadays still you can stay in those rooms and they has the same names.

And after Tony sow, the amount of people that want to stay in the Paradise they work hard in making the Mesopotamia pools with Natural Flows from River Jivales and building 6 new Rooms name Ce-Y-Ba plus 2 years later where open 6 mores rooms JI- VA- LES. Ceyba because of the name of an endemic tree that we have in the Dominican Republic and Jivales as the name of the longers river with a spring close to Cano Hondo, 1.5 km from the Hotel Cano Hondo.
