Our overnight private Bahia de las Aguilas tour from Santo Domingo also takes you to the amazing nearby Sierra de Bahoruco National Park, which combined make the most bio diverse area in the Caribbean. Considered the most beautiful beach in the Dominican Republic by many, Bahia de las Aguilas will definitely take your breath away.
Our first stop on this long journey but beautiful journey, is at Los Patos Lagoon and Beach. A pristine coastal freshwater lagoon of cool waters originating from inside the Bahoruco Mountain Range, nestled between the ocean and the mountains. Here you can enjoy a relaxing seaside lunch at one of the famous fish and seafood restaurants and later take a dip in the fresh water lagoon or the warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, or both!
Next we drive on a beautiful, scenic road from the beach up the mountain and through dry forest, rain forest, then finally pine forest as we enter Sierra de Bahoruco National Park at an elevation of roughly 4,500 feet and explore one of the tallest mountain ranges in the Caribbean. At the end of the day we have dinner and spend the night at a cozy eco lodge in the Haitian/Dominican border town of Pedernales, which makes for an interesting cultural experience.
The next morning we take a short drive to the amazing Bahia de las Aguilas Beach. Located in the Jaragua National Park and part of a United Nation’s biosphere preserve, this unique virgin beach has amazing white sand and crystal clear waters that meet thick sprawling dry forest. It is home to many endemic species of plant and animal life, including rhinoceros iguana, a wide variety of native birds, and many exotic cacti, just to name a few. The perfect way to end an unforgettable journey deep into the south of the Dominican Republic, a true diamond in the rough.
