1. YOU GIVE BACK! Proceeds go to conduct research, investigation, and environmental education programs in the reserve through the Center for Sustainability.
2. YOU GET TO WITNESS ALL KINDS FAWN AND FAUNA! The reserve is categorized as a “Transition Zone Sub-Tropical Forest,” since flora and fauna characteristic of both the Dry and Humid Sub-Tropical Forests can be found. Reptiles from the Anolis genus are abundant in this area, as well as small green snakes, frogs and other lizards. But not to worry, there are no venomous snakes on the Island of Hispaniola. The reserve has over 500 plant species, 36% of which live nowhere else in the world but the Dominican Republic. Red Land Crabs are common in the Ecological Reserve.
Although the reserve welcomes all, PUNTACANA asks that you respect the land and the rules that have been strategically created by the PUNTACANA Ecological Foundation. We love and respect the land and hope that you do as well. Feel free to and go on an adventure and have fun!
Once you’re finished walking, swimming and site seeing you can go one over to the ranch and ride a horse, feed the animals or treat yourself to a holistic spa treatment over at our Six Senses Spa, which is the only one to be found within the Americas by the way!
