Je suis partie en Goua-goua (bus public) pour voir la lagune, c'est environ 2h de trajet en transport en commun à partir de Barahona.

I don't remember the exact amount, but I think that this is about 200 to 300 pesos ($7-8). Along the way, maybe 20-25 minutes before arriving, we crossed a huge field of wind turbine, it was wonderful. To stop in the right place, ask the driver to let you to the lagoon, they are usually well kind. Once, I mounted the small Observatory and I went right in front of the Lake to take pictures. It's free to go take a look forward on the wharf and the Observatory but to enter inside the Park, a ride on foot autour or by boat on the Lake, to buy an excursion. When you see the site understands and it is good that they let people get away only. It is a places to protect. You bring enough money, there's no window in the vicinity and they don't take cards. I read a lot on forums that there is no petrol station on the way but if you see a small madames on the edge of the road at a square wooden with metal tabs table, with cans or litres with a yellow substance inside, well is that they sell. I've seen several at the height of the larimar and mine later when we pass through the villages up to the Playa San Rafael at least. The Lake is a place for aquatic bird watching. From August the Flemish roses return from Florida or they are gone for the reproduction and they end up per thousand on the Lake Oviedo. I went there in June, not the period but I able saw many anyway, closely, and they are big and dark pink. There are also plenty of other birds to observe, there are mangroves terrestrial and aquatic. Lake is the deepest 3 metres away, there a circumference of more than 30 km seems to me (not sure), has more than 20 islets whose one with iguanas rhinoceros (endemic), there is an Observatory also on one of the Islands. The Lake, which is various shades of green, has a salt content 3 times higher than that of the sea. So much for the technical info. Place I was offered tours on foot or by boat, and then I was offered in last option a sail boat ride, that I chose. So I went with my guide: Milagro Pérez (guide allowed Park national Jaragua), we did a walk walk around the lake or it got identified the birds that we saw and gave information on the Lake and mangroves. Meanwhile, the colleague of my guide, pilot-captain of the sailboat followed us with the boat by pushing on the water, it was really too cute! :) Then to get into the boat, we walked in a little muddy water but I had strong support from the captain. Once entered, we have advanced all 3 on the Lake in approaching a little bird, softly, and a little mangroves. Milagro lent me his pair of binoculars, good idea to have. And the view is so beautiful, it's such a special and unusual places. Once completed the tower and observation, the captain hoisted sail and we returned to the dock with the wind that wore us. I loved my trip and thanks to my 2 guides that made me spend a good time and that the company was very nice. Sailing is very quiet and peaceful, but it is certain that we cannot walk on the small islands and circumnavigate the Lake. It takes a boat motor. For the observation of birds, it is better to be as soon as possible in the morning. This tour is one of the highlights of my trip! I really recommend people to make the detour to go to Lake Ovideo, it is one of the highlights of my trip! It must take a ride on the Lake, otherwise watch opposite, it is really not the same interest, nearby also there is also a river which forms a small lagoon or water is translucent, Milagro there brought me, also. One can bathe. They also offer trips to Bahia de Las Aguillas, Lago Enriquillo, Sierra de Bahoruco. I strongly suggest to go to Bahia de Las Aguilas, but public transit do not render, better take a tour or be well adventurous, the site seems a little difficult to access. Here it is, enjoy your visit!show original
