“Nice change of scenery”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We booked this excursion through our hotel and it was very nice. It included visiting Los Haitises and Cayo Levantado. The boat ride there didn't seem long but that might have something to do with the rum and cokes they pour you all the way there and all the way back! It was nice to see the area but if you are hoping for a big nature adventure then the boat excursion isn't going to deliver.

“Beautiful Scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I loved to boat hour and a half boat ride to and from the park and exploring the caves was great, wear good footwear. The Lunch at our sister resort wasn't all that great but the beach was beautiful.

“Los Haites Parc Tour”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

If taking this tour from Punta Cana, it is way too far to go for a day tour. While the 2 hr boat tour was nice through the Mangrove, it took almost 5 hrs to get there. The tour (sultana tours, I believe) booked through our JETBLUE tour guide had far too many stops to pick people up. While the tour guide was knowledgeable, we left the hotel at 6:30am and never got on the boat to start our tour until close to 11:30am. We did visit caves as well, and while interesting, we spent too long there - and then we had a 4 hr bus ride back to the hotel. WOuld not recommend.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is a must do. The boat ride is a little long but if you are lucky you may see whales on the way over. The caves are great and you can look around for a long time before the guides start looking for you.

“Long boat ride, bit boring”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I traveled with two teens and a 7 year old. All three were bored to tears by the long boat ride to get to the park. The dolphins did provide some excitement, but they were really agitated having the boat so near. They kept slapping the water in a threatening manner. The actual park made up for the long ride. We enjoyed the glyphs and exploring the caves. If you are a history buff, this is for you.
