Lago Enriquillo

You will be picked up from your hotel at 7:30 am. From here you will head northwest. On the approximately two-hour drive to the salt lake, you will stop at a viewpoint where you can take pictures of the beautiful landscape. You will also pass numerous typical Dominican villages as well as a statue of the Taino chief Enriquillo, after whom the lake is named. Lake Enriquillo is one of the most charming areas in the country and is almost 40 meters below sea level. The area is hot and dry, but extremely fertile in places due to springs and small rivers.

Isla Cabritos

The trip in a typical boat on the lake will first take you to a section of the shore from where you have a good chance to see the crocodiles that live in the lake. On the way back you will visit the village of Neyba, known for its grapes, and Las Marias, a place where the locals spend their free time. If you would like to have lunch in a typical Dominican restaurant, please inform your guide. The cost of the lunch is to be paid by yourself. Afterwards, the driver will take you back to your hotel.
