It is located in the northwestern region of the country. Parque Nacional Monte Cristi is formed by 500 km² of land and marine ecosystems. Its fauna is rich and plenty of reptiles, especially the american crocodile, different amphibian species, and diverse kinds of birds like pelicans, bubí birds, silverfish insects and cuckoo birds. The characteristical flora is the Sabia Montecristi, endemic in this area, and the red and dark mangroves.

Most of the park is flat land except for El Morro de Montecristi, an impressive 242 metre-high promontory, that offers spectacular and interesting views of the whole park and its shore.

Other of the most relevant places in the park are its lagoons formed around Yaque del Norte River: El Saladillo Lagoon; Siete Hermanos Cay, a little group of empty islands; and the National Reserve of Villa Elisa, a dried subtropical wood.
