Welcome to Parques Nacionales Bermúdez & Ramírez
In 1956 the Dominican government established Parque Nacional Armando Bermúdez with the hope of preventing the kind of deforestation occurring in Haiti. The park encompasses 766 sq km of partly tree-flanked mountains and pristine valleys. Two years later, an adjoining area of 764 sq km to the south was designated Parque Nacional José del Carmen Ramírez. Between them, the parks contain three of the highest peaks in the Caribbean, and the headwaters of 12 major rivers, including the Río Yaque del Norte, the country’s only white-water river and its most important watercourse.
