This largely undeveloped protected area is perfect for hikers and wildlife viewers looking to explore an area that is as natural as you can get, while still having a good chance to see some wildlife.

The Parque Nacional Valle Nueve is an important nature conservation site on the island, with hundreds of species of bird, including parrots and woodpeckers using the area as a home. The primitive trails on the site will allow hikers to search for the birds, as well as appreciate the varied plant life.

Even if you are not staying nearby, you should think about stopping by for some fun in the sun. From this location, Jarabacoa is 20 miles (32 and a half kilometers) to the north.
