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!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
