The Hidden Lagoon in Santo Domingo
This is my first time in the Dominican Republic and after a long week of being stuck in a hotel working, I finally got out on Saturday to see one of the "top things to do" in Santo Domingo. I summoned Uber and headed over to Tres Ojos (Three Eyes) National Park. I had seen photos that people posted on Trip Advisor, but had no clue that it would be such a treat to explore this little park.
If you go, you should likely give yourself 3 hours or so to casually go up and down hundreds of stairs and enjoy the scenery, especially if you are taking photos. SAFETY WARNING... If you use Uber, wait INSIDE the gates for your taxi or Uber driver. The main road the entrance is on is not safe at all per on-site security - especially if carrying around a nice camera!
I called this the hidden lagoon because, well, it is hidden. Take the time to pay your 25 pesos and get on the 8-10 passenger man-powered ferry which takes you across the water through a cave. Once on the other side, climb up and over the rock stairs to find this gorgeous view!
