What You Can Expect

Los Haitises National Park Tour from Punta Cana

Spot brown pelicans at Los Haitises National Park

Meet your friendly local guide upon pickup from your hotel and head deep into Los Haitises National Park, where dozens of rocky island hills called mogotes drip with dense subtropical forest. This protected coastal sanctuary, including aquamarine San Lorenzo Bay, is home to a variety of reptiles, crustaceans, virgin flora and many species of birds.

When you reach Los Haitises, take a ride down the river and see the magnificent mangroves, rich with a variety of species such as red mangrove and white mangrove, and crawling with sea creatures.

As you tour the marine park, your guide will point out Los Haitises islands such as Cayo de los Pájaros (Bird Key), which frigate birds and brown pelicans inhabit. Spot the cupey, a dominant tree species with horizontal branches full of birds, the wild banyan tree (also known as the shortleaf fig) and the tropical almond, among other flora such as delicate orchids.

Continue your ecological adventure with a visit to the caverns, which the area’s first inhabitants (who possibly predated the indigenous Tainos) decorated with pictographs and petroglyphs. Enjoy a refreshing dip under the delightful waterfalls and dine on lunch before completing your eco-tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

This trip included stopping along the way at a place where it was possible to tour a farm home and a nearby school in addition to the time spent in the national park, which is an outstanding attraction on its own. Also went swimming below a waterfall at a place where we had our meal. A good trip to experience the Dominican country side

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

Guide was wonderfully knowledgeable about the area and culture. Make sure to wear a hat--lots of sun on the water!

4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

We got to see a lot, great experience overall.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better April 2014

Long bus ride from Punta Cana. The boat ride and park tour was nice. Waste of money and time. I would not do this trip again.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2014

This trip was far too long, 15+ hours, 7 of which we didn't have an English speaking guide. The ones that did speak English had a basic knowledge of the various sights, which was more like a script and couldn't elaborate any further. Far too long in the coach between sights, 2 hours from one stop to where we had lunch which we ate at 3pm! Left there at 4pm to go back to our hotel and arrived at 9.30pm. Not a pleasant day.
