Overview
More
The Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park and Reserve is a private protected area owned and operated by the PUNTACANA Ecological Foundation. Consisting of lowland subtropical forest, the reserve covers 1,500 acres of land dedicated to conservation, scientific research, and recreation.The Ecological Reserve is a forest reserve with twelve freshwater lagoons, five of which visitors can swim in. Historians discovered that the Taíno Indians, the pre-Columbian inhabitants of the island, referred to the lagoons as “eyes” because of their distinctive shape. For this reason, the Ecological Park and Reserve was named “Ojos Indígenas” or “Indigenous Eyes.”The Ecological Park consists of numerous exhibits describing the cultural and natural history of the island. Visitors can visit a petting zoo with many domesticated animals common in the Dominican Republic since colonial times, a sugarcane exhibit, an iguana habitat and many other attractions.

The first spring by far is the most beautiful! There is a platform that you can jump off into the water. Beautiful natural scenery, would def recommend visiting!

The walk and lagoons are beautiful! Bring bug spray. It takes at least 40 minutes to walk (quickly!) around the trail.

There is a place where you can purchase food and drink and use the restroom just across the road from the entrance. This is the place you need to stop in to pay or just check in if you are staying in the resort compound.
