Our National Park of the East private nature tour from Santo Domingo gets you away from the big city and into pristine forest with the best local nature guides around. Our 1.5 hour nature walk takes you through one of the most pristine forests in the Dominican Republic and visits several caves, one of which you can go swimming in. Our adventure begins on the outskirts of the quiet fishing town of Bayahibe, where people have lived and fished for over 1,000 years. Once in the area we set out on a light hike into the beautiful National Park of the East, a vast dry tropical forest and one of the largest national parks in the country.

As we navigate the scenic trail and make our way through the forest, we have the amazing opportunity to enter a large cavern and swim in the clear blue waters of a “zenote” type cave (known locally as Ojos de Agua). This spectacular sink hole is surrounded by Taino Indian carvings and inside lies a beautiful fresh water aquifer. To relax for a while in the cool water is a once in a lifetime opportunity and a truly peaceful and refreshing experience before we return to the trail and continue on our walk.

At around mid day, we wrap up our hike and have a delicious Dominican style lunch prepared by a local family in the nearby town of Bayahibe, which gives you a taste of real Dominican cuisine. After lunch we explore the village a bit and take you to some of our favorite spots in town. This makes for a very authentic cultural experience in one of our oldest and most picturesque communities, a fitting way to end a memorable and magical day in paradise.
