JP is to the rear and overlooking LT. We are surrounded by lush green jungle and vegetation that is full of all sorts of interesting tropical produce, flowers and creatures. Much of our food is produced locally and is organic.

I don't have enough good words about Dominic, Helena, and Jurassic Park. This stay was the perfect end to our Dominican travels. The bungalow is comfortable and peaceful (aside, of course, from the chickens), and there's nothing like showering in spring water. Make sure to have breakfast with Dominic and Helena at least once, both to get pointers on where to go and also to enjoy the local honey, coffee, and butter. We really did feel like we were staying with friends, and would have liked to stay much longer. Next time!
Dominic und seine Frau waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns jederzeit während unserem Aufenthalt sehr wohl bei ihnen gefühlt. Die Unterkunft entsprach der Beschreibung und lag in einer sehr schönen Umgebung.
Wir könne sie nur weiter empfehlen!
What an amazing place! Dominic, Helena and their kids are such lovely hosts. They were so helpful and had such great tips for activities. The way Jurassic Park is set up is gorgeous and it's hard not to feel at home. The only thing we regret is not having more time to spend there. Will definitely be heading back soon (can't wait to see the changes they're working on!) and highly recommend it to anyone who wants something different.
Dominic and his wife are amazing hosts. They went above and beyond in making us feel welcomed. Dominic is invaluable with information and advice about what to do/see while we were there. Our bungalow was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The grounds are super lush and the outdoor sympathy at night was soothing to go to sleep to. We would stay there again in a heartbeat! We loved Jurassic Park and Las Terrenas!
This is a great place if you're looking for an adventure but are too old to keep doing the hostel thing and hate the resort scene. My buddy and I booked five nights, then after a trip to Luperon, came back for another three days. Helene & Dominic were very helpful--everything from calling our motoconcho to telling us where the best beaches were and setting us up with guides. If you speak spanish, it's incredibly easy to get around, meet locals, and get anything you need from here. The kids are great, the staff were super helpful, and Dominic was a total character. Jurassic Park was definitely our favorite place in the three weeks we traveled around the country!
Helene and Dominic were great hosts---before and during the visit. Helene even came out with us the first night. The room was pretty big with a kitchenette and balcony and a comfortable bed with mosquito netting. However, the fact that it was far from town---a 15-20 min to town or the beach and although our hosts recommended we take moto taxis (small vespas) I honestly was very scared and uncomfortable using this form of transportation. It was very stressful and on the last day I found a car taxi--and willingly paid a bit more. If you want something off the beaten track then this is a good option. I would have preferred to be much closer to the action and not have to use the transportation all the time. Also the road to the place is very bad and one of the taxis did not want to go up the road so we had to walk. Dominic mentioned the Playa bonita which we luckily went to on the first day and had some sun but unfortunately the rest of the trip it was raining which also affected our enjoyment.
My recommendation would be to hire the taxi driver that Helene recommended for the trip and try not to go in the rainy season.
Jurassic Park was an unforgettable place! Real, absorbing beauty. The space is surrounded by a stunning scenery. Quiet and peaceful. A real magical experience.
All the workers are kind and warm individuals, and really add to the experience. One is close to the locals too which makes for a grand time. Already hoping for a return!
