Located in the Jaragua National Park, a biosphere reserve which also includes the famous Bahia de las Aguillas beach, the Oviedo Lagoon is one of the largest ecological reserves in the entire Caribbean. The largest saltwater lagoon in the Dominican Republic (10 mi²) is home to many endemic migratory bird species, but also to iguanas, pink flamingoes and sea turtles which come to lay their eggs here. A lagoon scattered with 24 islands, grottos and Taïnos engravings (a pre-Columbian tribe), and surrounded by exotic beaches, mangroves and dry forests, make for extraordinary scenery. Don't hesitate to climb to the top of one of the watchtowers to get a good look at all this nature.
