Boat trip to explore caves and learn about the national park and the animals that call it home. The stops are informative and entertaining for all. Uneven ground in the caves so care and caution must be taken. Lunch at Cayo Levantado was enjoyable. Must...More

You go by boat out to the park, through the mangroves. There are a couple of stops in the park to hike the trails into the caves and caverns that have great cave paintings. Well worth the trip. Great for photographs

FIN: Kaunis luonnonpuisto, jossa on mangrovepuita, lintuja sekä hienoja luolia. Luolissa on erittäin vanhoja maalauksia, jotka ovat mielenkiintoisia! Matka kestää Samanasta veneellä noin 40 minuuttia. Matkalla käydään kahdessa luolassa ja lopuksi mennään Bacardisaarelle lounaalle. Suosittelen ehdottomasti kaikille!
