    Pass By: Punta Cana, Punta Cana, La Altagracia Province, Dominican Republic

    After picking up the customers from the different hotels in Punta Cana, we’re gonna make our way to the small village of Las Canitas, in the area of Sabana de la Mar. Thanks to the new Miches highway, the driving time will be around 1.5 hours and on the way you will have the chance to enjoy beautiful views of the Dominican countryside. Rice, coffee, cocoa and tropical fruit plantations will catch your attention while your guide will provide a lot of interesting information regarding the Dominican culture and traditions.

    Stop At: Montana Redonda, Miches 24000 Dominican Republic

    On the way to Sabana de la Mar we will stop in the area of Miches to reach the beautiful Montana Redonda. An isolated 1,000 ft mountain nestled on the shoreline in the northeastern Dominican Republic, Montaña Redonda provides spectacular panoramic views for miles and miles around. It is located in Miches, in the Municipality of the province of El Seibo, and has a beautiful natural landscape and a wonderful 360 degree view.

    Duration: 25 minutes

    Pass By: Sabana de la Mar, Sabana de la Mar, Hato Mayor Province, Dominican Republic

    Left Montana Redonda, after an intermediate stop of 15-20 minutes in the village of Las Canitas to use the toilets, smoke or just relax, we will continue our trip towards north, direction Los Haitises National Park. We’ll pass through the town of Sabana de la Mar facing the Samana Bay.

    Stop At: Los Haitises National Park, Dominican Republic

    After around 1 hour we’ll finally reach the remote National Park of Los Haitises (bear in mind after passing the town of Sabana de la Mar we’ll continue on a dirt road to reach the park). We'll reach the dock of “Cano Hondo”, hop aboard a riverboat and ride through the winding canals of the park’s majestic mangrove forests, an ideal home for hundreds of species of birds, fish, reptiles and crustaceans. Leaving the mangrove forests, the scenery opens up into the San Lorenzo Bay with photo-inspiring views of the park’s lush outcroppings and the mountains of Samana in the distance. 

    After around 45 minutes we’ll get back to the land. It’s now cave exploration time! You’ll visit a cave called “Cueva de la Linea”, located deeper in the forest and filled with Taino pictographs and petroglyphs that will give you a better sense of how these indigenous people lived before the arrival of Christopher Columbus. After it you will return on our boat to make your way back to the starting point of “Cano Hondo”.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Hato Mayor del Rey, Hato Mayor del Rey, Hato Mayor Province, Dominican Republic

    It’s almost time to eat. From the National Park we’ll move to the region of Hato Mayor, to reach a beautiful place immersed in the nature. Lunch will be served at Yanigua Spa, a small ranch deep in the region’s countryside with lush vegetation and even an amazing waterfall! Enjoy a typical Dominican lunch of chicken, rice, beans, pasta, vegetables, salad, fruit and a delicious fried fish typically eaten in the local area called “Minuta”. Drinks include beer, soft drinks, water and at the end of the lunch coffee and the typical Mamajuana.

    The afternoon will be dedicated to relax. After lunch we’ll reach the river with the opportunity to swim in the refreshing waters, jump from the gorgeus waterfall, or apply the riverbed’s curative muds to your skin. Fancy a spa treatment for free? Yes the river Yanigua has plenty of sedimentary rocks including mudstones and claystones, which have countless properties and benefits.
