Located in the East Viewpoint Park in East Santo Domingo, it is a cavern made up of a large freshwater lagoon which was divided thousand of years ago due to a natural phenomenon and ended up originating four beautiful and unique interconnected pools.

Its name comes from the eye-shape of the three interior lakes, while from the outside you can only see a single lake.

Discovered in 1916, it is believed that the cave was frequented by ancient aboriginals from La Española.

The four main lakes are:

- Sulfur Waters: it is four meters depth; its bottom has a whitish component thought to be sulfur (from where its name comes), but later on, they discovered it was made of calcium and other minerals.

- The Fridge: is 5.4 meters depth and the coolest one. Its temperature varies from 15 to 21ºC, since it doesn’t receive sun light.

- The Ladies Lake: it is 2.5 meters depth in its deepest side and it was formerly used as a spa for women and children.

- Los Zaramagullones: Its curious name comes from the autochthonous ducks from the area. Being 6.1 meters depth, this beautiful lake is surrounded by lush vegetation, as it is the only pool in the open air.

Tours by boat can be made on the interior of the Cave, since the pools are interconnected. Here, you’ll have the chance to see curious drawings on the walls made by ancient Taíno people.
