Parque Nacional Los Haitises, Samana Province

4.4
#1 of 27 in Wildlife Areas in Samana Province
National Park Wildlife Area
Explore the remote coastal environment of Parque Nacional Los Haitises, a protected area offering diverse and abundant scenery. Take a boat tour along the coast to see the large mangrove forests and unusual limestone cones that adorn the shoreline, stopping off to see scenic caverns decorated in pictograms and petroglyphs made by as yet unidentified native populations. The diversity of ecosystems here supports a wide variety of wildlife and plant life, although much of the interior remains impenetrable. You'll mainly see coastal animals, such as frigatebirds, herons, and terns. The park keeps a cap on visitor numbers, so book your excursions well in advance to avoid disappointment. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Las Terrenas holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Parque Nacional Los Haitises and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
