National Park Los Haitises

   


As part of the largest estuary in the insular Caribbean, the 208 km2 Los Haitises National Park is a protected area in the northeast of the country (see map), which offers the visitor a rich variety of natural wonders to explore, including: large expanses of mangrove, humid subtropical forest, sea grass beds, and pristine keys scattered along the length of the coast.

The irregular topography of small, vegetation covered hills so characteristic of Los Haitises is the result of erosion subsequent to uplifting of the underlying limestone bedrock, formed over millions of years by marine organisms.

The National Park of Los Haitises is Located at the western end of the bay on the south shore across from Sanchez, this park features mangrove swamps with giant mangrove trees forming a lush, green canopy above the watery trails that wind through the swamps. Taino caves where the islands first inhabitants lived are another popular attraction of the park. Tours leave from Samana, Sanchez and Sabana de la Mar at the park's eastern edge across the bay from Samana.

There are important mangroves in Los Haitises National Park and two major life zones: the wet forest and the subtropical rainforest. Cedar, ceiba, mahogany, and other tropical American trees are common here.

A large number of birds can be found here, including parrots, owls, and gannets. Notable are also the juta and the solenodonte. Birds include gannets, Hispaniolan parrots, and owls.

There are pictographs and petroglyphs in some caverns.
