Caves & Mangroves Exploration

From the pier, board a speedboat and after a safety briefing, your ecological experience begins. Known for having one the lushest rainforests and mangrove reserves in the Caribbean, Los Haitises National Park is a beautiful sanctuary. You'll circle the small cay known as 'Bird Island' as your guide explains the importance of the many migratory and indigenous birds that inhabit the island.


Your Captain will dock the boat at an area of captivating caves and your guide will provide information on the people that inhabited these caves and the islands. Cave drawings representing the gods and the daily life of the Taino Indians will give you a glimpse into the life of these ancient people. You'll also see beautiful stalagmites and stalactites which have formed over centuries.


Note: Participants must be at least 6 years of age and be able to navigate uneven, slippery surfaces. Pregnant women and guests with leg or back problems are not allowed to participate. Wear comfortable clothing, closed-toe footwear or Teva®-type sandals with good tread. Caves are very dark.
