Visit The Tropical Rainforest in The Dominican Republic!
While staying in Punta Cana, be sure to explore the National Park Del Este, renowned for the excursions to the islands Catalinita and Saona. The land aspect of this park is practically un-explored. You can explore the flora and fauna of this dense dry tropical jungle, as well as its main attraction, the river Chavon, with the following excursions showing this real rainforest. On the banks of the River Chavon a world class property just has opened. And Punta Cana Excursions is the the only company to offer tours to this paradise. The Tanama Jungle Ranch houses the largest Butterfly Garden in the country. And it is located in the middle of the real Dominican rainforest. With the excursion a visit to the butterfly garden is followed by an introduction in the Dominican rainforest. You can follow the guide on a short trail, leading deeper into the forest. The guide will point out several interesting facts about the rainforest plus the creatures that live here. We will see 'the monkey pistol', the 'tourist tree' plus the 'zombie ants'... This is nature at its best, though very accessible. Several rope bridges connect the different parts of the trail.. The trail takes about 20 minutes and people with limited fitness can join ....
Make sure you contact Punta Cana Excursions if you want to explore this unique aspect of the Dominican Republic.
