Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Parque Nacional Los Haitises (Los Haitises National Park) protects a vast parcel of land along the western curve of Bahia de Samana (Samana Bay).
  • The park is home to 92 species of plants, 112 species of birds, and a variety of sea creatures that feed in the mangrove swamp.
  • Hire a guide from the park office near the pier in Sabana de la Mar, or go by organized tour from Santa Barbara de Samana. The only access to the park is by boat, with advance permission from the park department.
Only a fraction of the area within Los Haitises National Park is open to the public. You will need a guide from the national park office to get you into the reserve, where you can visit grottoes with Taino pictographs and the ruins of a dock once
