What we will do
  • We board a motorboat and, after receiving all the safety instructions from our guide, we are ready to explore the turquoise waters of the bay for an unforgettable adventure.
  • Our destination is the Los Haitises National Park, a true natural miracle filled with islets and caves, large mangrove forests among the most beautiful of the Caribbean and lush rainforest.
  • We sail around Cayo de los Pájaros, one of the numerous limestone hills that emerge from the seas filled with sterns, pelicans and other marine animals. * Along the way, our guide will point out the different species and provide a lot of interesting information about the local animals.
  • The captain moors the boat in an area from where we can admire the mysterious caves decorated with rock drawings depicting the Gods and everyday life of the Tainos, the ancient population that lived in this area. We remain enchanted by the fascinating stalactites and stalagmites that have formed over the centuries and that ornate the caves and then return to the port.
