  • Just to be allowed ten to be near these amazing creatures is completely wild. Even if you sit in a boat, so many are a single vip with the tail it all worth it. The locals are very good at locating whales, but at the same time respect the whales also territory-it is, after all, a national park.

  • If you are in the right time of the year there, whale watching sure is the highlight for nature lovers. For us, it was that, in spite of stormy, rainy weather. But, it is equipped with more or less working rain protection. The captain has become very hard, to find whales for us, which he also managed. However, you must remain only 30 minutes for the whales. It was just great! Because we came from Punta Cana, it was a whole day tour followed by lunch and a trip to the Bacardi island.

  • The excursion is a wonderful experience, although it is not recommended to go see them in March, as output are already and are few as happened to us. If you want to see the Majesty of this show, you must go in February. Otherwise, it was a beautiful day on the beach and stay at Cayo Levantado, in its part published in contact with people, his art his meals and beverages and handicraft. Cayo raised needs an intervention of the municipality in the maintenance of the common areas (bathrooms) and playa.pues this right next to each area of the most quoted hotels in the Caribbean, the Bahia Principe de Luxe Cayo Levantado.
