Loved the views and calmed waters. Amazing for a boat or catamaran ride. Saw a lot of starfish. Very relaxing to be in contact with Nature.

Visiting here is like being in a film, it is simply beautiful. If you are in the Dominican Republic you are missing out if you do not visit this island

Great 2 mile hike via beach from hotel - save walk and easy access on beach. You can also take public bus

A great park to horse back ride in but they really need to hire someone to pick up the trash that gets blown in, wouldn't take much to make it a much better place.

We drove in and down to the beach - there was so much rubbish we turned right around and drove back out. And this is supposed to be a national park and protected area?

Me and my friends did two different trails in this national park - Padre Nuestro and Dominucus. We didn't take a guide and decided to go by ourselves, which was fine. Caves are very interesting on both trails, but the Padre Nuestro one is very...More

We went to the caves in this park. First we walked from our hotel in nearby Dominicus (although you could have grabbed a taxi for 500 pesos). The fee was $100 pesos to enter the park. At the start of the 3km loop, we were...More
