Trou Nicolás or the“Nicholas hole” is the name given to a series of three river fed natural pools tucked in a partially open cave, and hugged by rocky formations. Part of the Jaragua National Park, these freshwater pools are located just two kilometers (1.25 miles) before getting to Cabo Rojo, and approximately 13 kilometers (eight miles) east of Pedernales.
