Between the provinces of Barahona and Independencia, roughly 40 meters below sea level, is Lake Enriquillo. The lake measures 250 square kilometers, but varies in depth. It is nearly three times as salty as the Caribbean Sea. The beautiful and spectacular natural phenomenon is adamantly protected and is inhabited by flora and fauna native to dry woods, including near-extinct crocodiles and iguanas, herons, flamingos, and swallows.
