National Park Los Haitises and Bacardi Island

The boat tour to the National Park “Los Haitises” takes you to the coastal zone of the more than 200 km² nature reserve. A huge green mangrove belt stretches along the coast and over 50 small islands form a labyrinth of waterways.

An excursion to the Cayo Levantado, also called “Bacardi Island”, is also part of the program. The two kilometre long and about 500 metre wide island is a nature reserve and surrounded by a light to turquoise blue sea. In combination with the gorgeous white sandy beaches, the island offers a breathtaking scenery.
