Route to Bahia de las Aguilas – Eco Tour - 3 Days

Overview

The Bahía de las Águilas is a bay of the Caribbean Sea, located in the central part of the southern coast of the island of Hispaniola. Administratively, it is part of the province of Pedernales de la Dominican Republic. It is largely the Jaragua National Park and has an area of about 1,374 square kilometers about 37 Kilometers long.

Bahía de las Águilas is located in the southern part of the island, it was declared a World Biosphere Reserve by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the government received the certificate that accredits this area as of world ecological importance.

Bahía de las Águilas is part of the Jaragua National Park. According to surveys and opinions at the international level, it is in this place where there are the most beautiful beaches in the Dominican Republic.  The beaches are so beautiful with white sand and its waters so crystalline that they amaze its visitors. It is also classified as the most crystalline beach in the world. Bahía de las Águilas has some of the best coral reefs in the entire Caribbean.

It is also a breeding area for the West Indian manatee, another critically endangered species. Corals, giant starfish, Pseudoterogorgia Gorgonians (marine invertebrates that look like skeletons of shrubs) and seagrass beds abound in its waters. It is possible to see hawksbill turtles, since on these beaches there is the largest nesting in the Caribbean and the largest number of young hawksbills in the world, the green turtle is frequent in these waters. Equally important are the populations of rhinoceros iguana, crown pigeon, ash pigeon, lambies, manatees, dolphins, etc. In the Jaragua National Park, there are about 130 species of birds, of which 10 are endemic, 76 residents and 47 migratory.

In Bahía de Las Águilas it has not yet been approved to build tourist facilities, so we will find a totally virgin area, full of marine fauna and coastal flora.

The accommodation takes place in a truly paradisiacal place, Eco del Mar Lodge, at the foot of one of the most beautiful beaches in the area, where we will enjoy direct contact with nature.
