Domincan Real Estate's Rich Natural Heritage
By Charles Edwards
The five hundred-year history of Dominican Republic real estate features many interesting stories that are little known to investors seeking a safe place to explore real estate opportunities. Here are the top 5 interesting things to be found in this wonderful Caribbean nation.
First, Lago Enriquillo is a lake that should never be missed during any visit to this island republic. The lake actually serves as a border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic, and actually at one time used to be part of the Caribbean Sea before a geologic event cut it off from the sea. This lake is the lowest point in the Caribbean, and is home to a stunning number of flamingos.
Parque Nacional del Este (Eastern National Park) can be found in the southwest corner of the country, and is the Caribbean's largest and most diverse ecological reserve. While the terrestrial component of this reserve is wonderful on its own, the park boundaries stretch out into the sea, and protect fragile coral reefs and waters that are home to amphibious iguanas and humpback whales. Back on land, the original indigenous inhabitants of the island, long gone since the days of Columbus, left behind a number of sites that are also protected by the park.
Back in the city, the Playa del Macao is a beach close to the capital that has a special UNESCO accreditation because of its powdery sugar sand. Many visitors swim here or enjoy lying on the beach. The Basilica of Our Lady features one of the oldest Roman Catholic churches in the hemisphere, and enjoys direct links to Christopher Columbus. The Museo De las Casa Realas (Museum of Royal Houses) is an appropriate accompaniment to the Basilica, and itself features many preserved colonial buildings. Dominican real estate is surrounded by both amazing scenery and a rich cultural heritage
