Hispaniola -- the Caribbean island that contains Haiti and the Dominican Republic -- is home to a variety of moist forest types. The flora of Hispaniola is the second most diverse of all the Caribbean Islands, and levels of endemism are high on the island. Wildlife, including giant tree frogs and flower bats, thrives in this lush, moist forest, making this ecoregion an interesting one to visit.
