National Park Isla Cabritos
This national park has two especially noteworthy items you won’t find anywhere else in the Caribbean.
The park’s other two islands, Barbarita and Islita, are rarely visited. (Read about my visit to the park and its crocodiles)
The entrance to the park is a little over 1 mile east of the town of La Descubierta (also site of Las Caritas). While it’s possible to see crocodiles from the shore on Lago Enriquillo, hiring a boat and paying a $60 entrance fee to trip to reach Isla Cabritos is the way to go.
Go early in the day, as soon as the park opens at 8 a.m. As the lowest point in the Caribbean, it becomes hellishly hot here quickly. By 10 a.m. conditions are brutal.
