Explore Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park and Reserve on a 2-hour tour from Punta Cana. Discover an abundance of native flora and fauna. Swim in the most amazing cenotes before returning to Punta Cana.
What to Expect
After pick-up from your hotel in Punta Cana, head to Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park and Reserve by minivan and embark on a small group walking tour of the privately-owned 1,500 acre (600 hectare) nature park.
Follow your guide through a network of trails in the tropical forest and learn about the flora and fauna native to the island. Find out about the reserve's scientific research and conservation efforts, led by the Punta Cana Ecological Foundation. The foundation works to save native and endangered species in the Dominican Republic.
Tour a habitat area designed specifically for native iguanas and visit a fruit tree garden as well as a petting zoo. See an exhibit about the history of Punta Cana’s sugarcane industry before heading to one of 12 freshwater lagoons — home to many birds, reptiles and insects — for a swim.
Jump into the crystal-clear water for a refreshing swim or just relax in this enchanting setting. Hear about the indigenous Tainos who originally inhabited the island and called the lagoons "eyes" due to their distinctive shape. After bathing in the freshwater pool, return to your hotel in Punta Cana.
