Description

We’ll take you on this amazing half-day trek in Los Tres Ojos National Park to explore the magnificent open-air limestone caves and crystal clear blue lagoons near Santo Domingo!

Located just 5 miles from the capital city of Santo Domingo, the 3 Eyes National Park is a beautiful reserve with a natural cave system and a series of clearwater lagoons known as “eyes”.

The park also provides a glimpse into the ancient history of the Dominican Republic as we can see the Taino caverns once used for spiritual rituals or refuge.

The entrance to the park leads to a zig-zag staircase. As we’ll go down, we’ll see the age-old limestone caves and three freshwater blue lagoons. They were called “eyes” by the Taino because or their oval shape.

The first eye called “Aguas Azufradas” was discovered in 1916, followed by “La Nevera”, which has a cooler temperature. As we proceed, we’ll see the third eye, known as “Lago de las Mujeres” or  “Las Damas”.  In addition to these three, there is also a fourth lagoon accessible via a small boat.

We’ll spot numerous fish, turtles and bats, which inhabit the caves and enjoy the calmness of the park, as we walk past tall (13 feet) green ferns.

We’ll also tour Faro de Colon or the Columbus Lighthouse, which supposedly contains the remains of the famous explorer Christopher Columbus. The old lighthouse features light beams which take the shape of a cross when illuminated. And the glow is such that it can be seen from the nearby island of Puerto Rico!
