Lago Enriquillo

Lago Enriquillo

Its surface covering over 350 square kilometers (135 square miles), Lago Enriquillo is the largest lake in the Caribbean, and also the region’s sole body of water located more than 43 meters (140 feet) below sea level. Named after Enriquillo, the first Taino chief who successfully revolted against Spanish colonialists, the lake and its surrounding lands are ideal for wildlife watching and nature exploration. Boat trips along the lake’s waters and onto Isla Cabritos–sitting in the middle of this unique body of water–reveal a large population of American crocodiles which you’ll view up close, as well as pink flamingos at Boca de Cachón, and numerous other bird species. Iguanas guard the entrance to the lake, and the surrounding land includes tropical and dry forests, water springs–La Azufrada–and farmland. Bring a hat and plenty of water as the heat is at its most intense in these parts, particularly on the boat ride.
