The Los Haitises National Park Preserve is a very beautiful, untouched, lush Rain-Forest area.  This tour consists of a scenic boat ride across the bay to the Nature Preserve/Bird Sanctuary area.  Enjoy the scenery of the Samana peninsula from a new vantage point that you don't get anywhere else. Once arriving at the park the tour includes a number of small islands that make up the bird sanctuary part of the Park.  Many species of birds use this protected area to raise their young, safe from humans and other predators.  Then check out the Sharks Mouth Cave by driving the boat right into the mouth!  Next we dock at the mouth of a larger cave with some spectacular photo ops. Walk from one end of the cave out the other side where the boat will be waiting at another dock to pick us up.  Once safely back in the boat we are on our way to the pictograph caves where we’ll pass through the mangroves swamp en route.  These caves are where you find the drawings on the walls from some of the original Taino Indians that were wiped out by the Spanish.  The caves on this tour alone are worth seeing because they are very large and carry a very unique history that's over 500 years old.
 
This excursion ends with a stop at Cayo Levantado (sometimes called Bacardi Island) for a typical Dominican buffet lunch.  Some drinks are available at the restaurant on Cayo. Spend the rest of your day relaxing along the crystal blue waters of this island paradise.
To visit Cayo Levantado Beach from Cayacoa Hotel with the hotel’s in-house tour operators you will pay $30 a person just to visit the island from 9 am to 1 
pm.  So you increase your value with this tour, it's like 2 excursions in one!

We do recommend sun screen, sun glasses and a hat as you will be in the sun most of the time. 

You will have selected drinks and a buffet lunch on Cayo Levantado.
