Day trip Dudu lagoon and cenotes with lunch

Laguna Dudu, also called the blue lake is a great destination for a day excursion, for divers or just day trippers.

Located close to Cabrera, on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, the cenote or sink holes consists of different lakes with crystal clear water fresh water, interconnected by different tunnels making it a unique spot for divers.

The lake dive is also quite impressive with trees laying underwater, a phantasmagoria experience, straight out of Harry Potter or Lord of The Rings, and gives the opportunity of great photo shots.

For the most adventurous, a zipline runs over the main lake, and the 10 meters jump is a great fun.

The area has one cave that is said to have been inhabited by a Taino Indian, named Dudu, which is where the area is supposed to have gotten its name from. The other theory about how the name came about is because of the many doubts on the depth of the different lakes.

The area has lots of grassy areas, which is great for sunbathing, chilling or look at the wildlife, some hammocks and a volleyball court.
