National park Los Haitises
An absolute MUST : Los Haïtises National Park was once a safe haven for the Taino Indians where they hid out in the many caves which still bear their original pictographs and cave drawings dating back to the beginning of the XVI Century.
Without a doubt the most spectacular of the country's national parks, Los Haïtises is home to a huge variety of endemic flora and fauna and is particularly famous for its bird colonies, including herons, pelicans, frigates, buzzards…
Los Haïtises also boasts the greatest abundance of Caribbean mangroves and the peace and quiet there is incredible. The only sounds are the birds singing… Heaven!
The excursion includes a visit to the 3 main caves, an exploration of 2 different mangroves and of course fishing bird watching.
Refreshments are served on the beach in the company of the park wardens who live there.
Lunch is served on the way back around midday.
