This lake belongs to national park Los Tres Ojos (The Three Eyes) . is the name given to a 50-Yard open-air limestone cave located in the Mirador del Este park, in the Santo Domingo Este municipality of the Dominican Republic. The site was created centuries ago as a result of tectonic fractures when underground caves collapsed, forming a bowl-shaped depression which subsequently filled with water. The caves are fed by water from an underground river and surrounded by stalactites and stalagmites. The composition of the water varies. The two ponds are respectively made of sulphurous water and salt water, while this large lake is composed of freshwater, their various depths give rise to different coloured reflections, blue, green, and sometimes yellow. This is the fourth lake, its name comes from a species of frog ducks that are native to the area. It has a natural vegetation surrounding the lake. 6.1 meters deep. And it is the only lake that is outdoors, therefore it is not recognized as an eye. It is circular in shape and has a circumference of approximately 223 meters.
