Cayo Levantado, Dominican Republic-port

Become the perfect beachcomber on the paradise island of Cayo Levantado with its brilliant white sand and sparkling, pristine turquoise water. Explore the entire island on foot. Then find a hammock strung between swaying coconut palms. Laze the day away lulled by the breeze and a few tropical beverages served in containers carved out of fresh pineapple. Move to the beat of live salsa and merengue music. Or set sail to Samana to explore waterfalls and underwater caves. Sample the local cuisine – succulent barbequed pork and chicken, fresh caught lobster, shrimp and scallops – as delicious as you’d expect in such a dreamlike setting.

Duration: 3 1/2 hours

Tour Code: CAY-006

This is one of the most unique tours to be found, offering a blend of exploration and environmental discoveries. You'll board an open-air speedboat shipside and following a short safety briefing, zip across the turquoise bay to Los Haitises National Park for the ecological experience of a lifetime. Well-known for having one of the most important, lush rainforests and mangrove reserves in the entire Caribbean, the Park is truly an awe-inspiring sanctuary.

Arriving at Los Haitises, your boat will first circle the small cay known as Bird Island while your guide points out and explains the importance of the many migratory and indigenous birds that inhabit the island. Next, your Captain will navigate your boat through winding mangrove swamps to an area of intriguing caves where you will dock and proceed on foot to explore two of the caves. Once inside, you'll be able to view the fascinating ancient cave drawings which represent the Indian gods and give a glimpse into the daily life of the Taino Indians who once inhabited these caverns. They are also home to some impressive stalagmites and stalactites.

Following your cave exploration, you'll return to your speedboat for the return trip back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes minimal walking; however, some of it is over sandy or uneven ground and there are some bridges to negotiate. The tour is not recommended for guests who utilize a wheelchair, those with recent back or neck injuries, or pregnant women. Guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their own level of ability. It is suggested that guests wear comfortable, flat, shoes with a non-slip sole as well as sun cap, sunglasses and sun protection. Because the speedboat is open-air, there is a chance of getting wet. It is not recommended for those who suffer from motion sickness.
