Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park and Reserve (Parque Ojos Indigenas)
Popular for its beautiful lagoons (five of which are swimmable) and surroundings, the protected 1,500-acre (600-hectare) Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park lies in the south end of Punta Cana. You can walk through the forest paths to a quiet beach, or jump in and cool off in the swimming holes. Thanks to the clear, deep turquoise waters, taking photos here is another popular activity. While you can visit independently (there are also guided walking tours available), many people come as part of a half- or full-day guided tour that may also include a catamaran cruise or off-road adventure.
Things to Know Before You Go
The Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park is ideal for nature lovers.
Access to the reserve is via paid ticket.
There are on-site restrooms, lockers, and a stall selling drinks.
Remember to bring a swimsuit and towel if you’re planning to swim in the lagoons.
How to Get There
The Ojos Indígenas reserve is located in Punta Cana close to the Cap Cana Marina. It is easily accessible by car and as part of a guided tour.
When to Get There
The reserve is open daily from sunrise to sunset. Afternoons are the busiest time, so plan to visit early in the morning for a quieter experience. High season in the Dominican Republic is from December to March, while rain and high winds are possible from June to November.
Stroll Around Cap Cana Marina
With room for 150 boats, Cap Cana Marina is a fun spot to visit on a trip to Punta Cana. You can marvel at the yachts, stroll along the quayside, and enjoy a drink, lunch, or dinner at one of the restaurants inside this upscale resort community.
