Manati Park Bavaro, Punta Cana

1.4
#3 of 12 in Theme Parks in Dominican Republic
Take a boat out to shallow sandbars that are abundantly populated by rays at aptly named Manati Park Bavaro. (You'll be briefed on how to interact properly with creatures.) Thought to have been originally attracted to the sand bars by fisherman gutting and cleaning their fish, the stingrays still congregate here, though the fisherman have been replaced by tourists who are ready to feed them squid. Don your snorkel and you'll be able to pet, feed, and observe the stingrays as they move around the water.
