The privately run Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park (or Parque Ojos Indigenas) preserves 45 acres (18 hectares) of tropical paradise, part of the larger 1,500-acre (600-hectare) Punta Cana Ecological Park. The park is named for the crystal-clear freshwater lagoons (called ‘eyes’) that run underground and emerge here near the sea.
Trails lead around the park, and guided tours are available. Tours on horseback go through the park and along the coast, while the option to take an unforgettable swim in one of the dozen lagoons is also available.
The Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park runs along the coast, half a mile (600 meters) south of Punta Cana Resort.
