Places to See

El Choco National Park/Laguna Cabarete y Goleta

This lush and diverse protected area was named a national monument in 1992 . The park is comprised of pasture land, a lagoon, and jungle area that contains lush tropical plants, exotic birds, fresh water springs and solution caves (caves dissolved out of solid rock by acidic waters - usually due to their time under the water table). The park's entrance is located 2 km from Cabarete, on the North Coast, and can be visited for an hour or two, or for the entire day. Due to the maze of unmarked paths and lush vegetation, its recommended you visit the park with a Tour Operator or Park guide who can not only guide you through but also provide you with information about the area.
