A trip to the Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park and Reserve is a highlight of any visit to the Dominican Republic. The network of trails leads through beautiful tropical forest and delivers visitors to 12 freshwater lagoons, some of which are open for swimming. The water is as clear and clean as any you’ll ever dive into, and if you arrive early or on exceptionally hot days you may even get a chance to swim with turtles or other wildlife. The reserve is an excellent place to spot local and migratory birds, insects, reptiles, and other local fauna and flora. Self-guided visits to Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park and Reserve are free of charge for guests at The Westin Puntacana Resort & Club as well as Puntacana Resort & Club homeowners and residents.
