Together with Independencia and Pedernales provinces, Bahoruco forms parts of Enriquillo region, and its land has been a silent witness of the human occupation from the Taínos to the present time.

Its capital city is Neyba (also spelled Neiba), and it is known it already existed in 1606, when the northern towns were destroyed. Apart from the capital city, a few towns have remained since ancient times, such as Villa Jaragua and Los Ríos, that are also historically important for the region.
