FULL DAY EXCURSION
Departure from Punta Cana and Bayahibe – Tuesday and Friday.
Departure from Bayahibe: 6 AM – 7:30 PM.
Departure from Punta Cana: 8 AM – 6:30 PM.
Enjoy a great Ecological Adventure in the Dominican Republic along the Northern and the Northeastern coastline. Visit the Los Haitises national park, one of the country’s most important protected natural landscapes, home to impressively rich fauna and exuberant flora.
The journey begins early in the morning on a bus from Bayahibe/Punta Cana. We will head to Miches (breakfast stop) and then to Sabana de la Mar. Once there, we will get on a boat which will take you along the Caño Hondo River all through the Los Haitises national park. Here, we will admire the impressive karst landscape that boasts extensive mangroves, home to over a hundred different bird species, as well as the famous mogotes – 30-meter (98-foot) high rock formations peaking out of the water. We will also visit 2 caverns, which have petroglyphs and pictographs on their rock walls – prehistoric paintings, an invaluable legacy of the ancient Taino civilization.
After the tour of the park we will go back to the pier and head to Paraíso Caño Hondo, an ecolodge surrounded by jungle within the Los Haitises national park. Here we will be offered a delicious Dominican lunch as well as an opportunity to enjoy a refreshing swim in the local natural pools.
Afterwards, we will get back on the bus and head to Montaña Redonda, where a Safari truck will take us to its very top. Montaña Redonda is located in-between two large lagoons (Laguna Limón and Laguna Redonda) and offers one of the most spectacular panoramic views in the Dominican Republic – the Atlantic ocean to its East and the Eastern Cordillera to its West.
Afterwards, we will go back to the bus and return to Punta Cana/Bayahibe.
