The Plain of the Cul-de-Sac or Cul-de-Sac Depression is a fertile lowland on the island of Hispaniola. It extends from southeastern Haiti into the southwestern Dominican Republic, where it is known as the Hoya de Enriquillo. Parts of the depression lie below sea level, and it is home to several saline lakes, including Lake Enriquillo, Rincón Lagoon, and Lake Caballero in the Dominican Republic and Etang Saumâtre and Trou Caïman in Haiti.
