About
Discover the Isla Cabritos National Park in the Independencia region, considered of being one of the most beautiful regions of the country. The lake Enriquillo is located between the mountains of Bahoruco and Neyba and lies 30 meters below sea level. The region gets very little rainfall and is therefore the driest region of Dominican Republic. Due to this fact the vegetation in this area almost exclusively consists of cacti but this anyhow does not stop the wildlife from flourishing! A variety of Iguanas, Scorpions, Crocodiles and Birds (60 different species including egrets, herons and king-fisher) find their home in this well protected surrounding. The lake is the largest natural reserve where the American Crocodile can be found. On this tour you will observe the wildlife, go on a boat ride on the lake, get a typical lunch (on surcharge!), explore the Taino cave “Las Caritas” and swim in one of the natural sulfureted water pools. What are you waiting for, book today!

Tour of Lake Enriquillo
Dec 2019
I visited Barahona in December. Booked a trip to Lake Enriquillo with Ecotour Barahona. Aside from the already gorgeous scenery, wildlife (birds, Iguanas, and crocs); the delicious lunch and our fabulous guide, Yovanny, made the trip fantastic. Nice boat trip around the lake, followed by a short hike to a cave with petroglyphs, lunch and then a stop at a natural spring for swimming. We enjoyed the trip so much that we booked a tour the following day to Flamingo Island. Our guide, Yovanny, spoke excellent English and had a welcoming personality along with good bird knowledge. All in all, a great introduction to the SW part of the DR.
