Brazil, the largest country of South America is full of outstanding white-sand beaches, pristine rain forests and rhythm-filled metropolises. With its dramatic landscapes of red rock canyons, thundering waterfalls and the exotic tropical islands, the county is well known as the most fascinating tourism destination throughout the world. In addition to this, its diverse ecosystem shows off the greatest population of flora and fauna with beautifully colored animals and birds that surprise its visitors.
Covering an area stretching 1,600 km² (618 square miles), Los Haitises National Park is one of the crown jewels of the Dominican Republic’s national park system. Los Haitises –which means “hilly land” in the Taino language– attracts numerous visitors who come here by boat to see its magnificent series of 30-meter (98-foot) high rock formations jutting out of the water. The park also boasts extensive mangroves along its bay, which is dotted with cayes that are home to multiple bird colonies, as well as a series of caves known for having one of the highest numbers of petroglyphs and pictographs in the country.
You’ll easily spot the endangered Ridgway’s Hawk, the Hispaniolan Piculet, the Hispaniolan Woodpecker, the Hispaniolan Emerald, as well as pelicans, frigate birds, herons, and many more majestic birds in flight over the park’s extensive landscape. Los Haitises also nurtures one of the few remaining rainforests in the country, once used as a filming location for the feature film Jurassic Park. Once you're here you can choose between explore the park by boat from Samaná, hike its rainforest to view flora up close, or kayak along its lush mangrove system. Whatever activity you choose, you'll be certainly mesmerized by the beauty of the region.
