    The national Eastern Park in Southeast of Dominican Republic, stop it to get to the most of the tours depart from the town of Bayahibe. There are several places to visit in the Park, without a doubt the most important place is Isla Saona. Most beautiful in the Caribbean, the edge of the beach can find one of the beaches on the island. It is a beach of white sand and finite as talc and the water is crystal clear turquoise. Then this the village of fishermen of Mano Juan where one usually eats something and then visit the sanctuary of the turtles where, if one is lucky, can see newly hatched turtles. You can also tour the Chavón River where a myriad of native flora and fauna can be found. Impossible not to meet somewhere.

    Park gentrified, but this is a flawed and interesting, gentle version of the jungle. Narrow paths, cave, trees, flowers, lizards. In the afternoon walk warm evening, there is a risk to not have time until dark, so it's better to sweat, trees will be closed down. Protection against mosquitoes. Next to the sea in some places where there is too much to look at.
