The Los Haitises national park is across the Samaná Bay (about 45 minutes boat ride from the town of Samaná). Once you arrive, the boat will cruise among the many small rocky islets (keys), which are inhabited by several species of birds including the brown pelican, a few species of owls, and many other birds. Landscapes are spectacular with the... More

Nice way to see the countryside. Pelicans were the highlight. Boat ride was smooth. Caves were fun to see.

The National Park tour was great. The islands with the birds nesting, the caves and the mangrove were stunning.

Took a day tour with Flores Tours and totally enjoyed. The cost is $70.00 including transportation, buffet lunch and guide. The tour included the bus ride to the parc and the boat ride to visit 3 caves, mangroves and bird sightings. The guide was excellent. This was one of my favorite tours in the Dominican Republic and highly recommend a... More

Liked the boat ride over and the beauty of the place. We saw mangroves and the bird island from the water but only got out the boat to visit 3 caves. This is a large park and so we had hoped to go inland more and see more wildlife.

If you take a trip to the park by boat, make sure that you are not sea sick. The crossing is about 45 min with decent waves. Otherwise it s a great place to visit

The park was beautiful, but there were too many people with one guide. There were about 25-30 people on our tour speaking at least 4 languages with one guide. We were allowed one flashlight for 8 people. Our flashlight buddies did not speak English. We were all huddled in the caves trying to see what the guide was showing us... More

The tour strarts through the mangroves and there are some herons that are easily spotted. The rocks are spectacular reminding somewhat on the Halong bay, where "golden Gun" was shot. There is more birds, Pelicans, vultures, Osprey and even two caves to visit one with paintings from the time of Columbus. Very nice trip for an afternoon!

A fairly long boat trip across the bay to the park. The islands are beautiful and we saw many pelicans and frigate birds. A beautiful though short trip through the islands. The caves and mangroves are also interesting and we spent more time there. On the way back we even passed some dolphins. Lovely. Our trip ended on Bacardi Island... More
