Hoyo Azul is based in the middle of a verdant rainforest that truly is the closest you can get to a Garden of Eden in the 21st Century. To access it you’ll need to buy a ticket for Scape Park with prices varying depending on what you want to do there. It’s money well spent with some amazing experiences on offer.
We’d recommend hiring a guide who will take you safely through the forest to find Hoyo Azul. It’s not an obvious path as the site has retained its natural, untamed beauty, unlike some of the more sanitised tourist magnets that other holidays have to offer. Choose the right tour and you’ll also learn a little about Dominican history and its flora and fauna on the way. Prices range from $69 to $129 for adults, the higher price including access to the other attractions.
