Join certified guides as they lead you on this fascinating day trip from Paraiso to hike around Lake Enriquillo, the largest lake in the Dominican Republic and the biggest crocodile reserve in the America’s, where the beautiful landscape of the area is constantly evolving and changing.
Open to everyone
I will guide you on this day-long hike around Lake Enriquillo in the Dominican Republic, the largest lake in the Caribbean and the largest crocodile reserve in the America’s, as we explore and discover the distinctive and unique climate and landscape around us, whilst also admiring the astonishing array of flora and fauna that live in the area, close by to the town of Paraiso.
Lake Enriquillo and its surrounds is an extremely interesting place, as not only is it the driest spot in the entire Caribbean but most of the vegetation around it is cactus, meaning there is a true melting pot of species that exist around it such as crocodiles, iguanas, scorpions and birds.
We will meet in Paraiso in the morning, and from there we head off straight to the lake. Once at the lake we have ample time to watch the many crocodiles that inhabit the lake, with many laying their eggs in the region, ensuring that plenty are around at all times.
It is then time to explore one of the Taino caves of the area, a well-preserved and sacred place for the Taino Indians who lived here hundreds of years ago.
We then refresh and relax by going for a swim (far away from the crocodiles!) in a naturally sulphureted water pool, a tranquil and idyllic place that is also excellent for your skin.
The unique location of the lake, 30 metres below sea level and in an extremely dry climate, has resulted in such a cross-section of odd and different species of flora and fauna co-habiting together.
We finish our adventure by heading back to Paraiso at the end of the day, thrilled at having discovered and seen such a magnificently idiosyncratic part of the Dominican Republic.
Book now to see some of the best and most interesting scenery of the Dominican Republic.
Meet in morning, hike to lake, bird and crocodile watch, visit cave, swim, hike back to starting point, finish.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
