Los Haitises National Park
Board a speedboat to cross the bay of Samaná and explore one of the most unique national parks in the world. Discover a sanctuary of wild birds, a multitude of small islands and magnificent mangroves, caves with stalagmites and stalactites, ancient paintings, and sculptures of the Taino Indians. Then it’s off to Cayo Levantado for a scrumptious lunch before heading back to Samaná pier.
Spend an unforgettable day aboard an 18-person truck with spectacular views of Samaná’s countryside. Visit a local farm to see how tropical fruits and vegetables are grown, all while tasting the local produce, including coffee and cacao. An untamed beach and a hidden waterfall deep in the tropical jungle await your discovery. Continue your day along a winding road with spectacular views of the Bay of Samaná.
You’ll be greeted with a cocktail as you board the catamaran and set out to tour the bay of Samaná. There will be snorkeling at Cayo La Farola, then off to Cayo Levantado to enjoy the white sand beaches and sparkling waters, where lunch will be served under the coconut trees. Set sail mid-afternoon for your trip back with some merengue beats and a last drink to end a spectacular day.
