The Ecotours are nature tours into the
Dominican national parks; therefore, these ecological tours include:
hiking, environmental route, wildlife viewing, wildlife photograph,
bird watching, butterflies watching, nocturnal tours, agro tourism,
etc. In addition, we have contacts with some community’s excursion
providers to make recreational marine excursion: like boating,
fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. We can prepare an excursion
package for group according to their interest.
These EcoTours are customized ecological tours and private deluxe
tours exclusively for group of people and families of 5 people or
