Explore the age-old caves of the remote Los Haitises National Park, hiking in the Dominican Republic. Join one of our certified guides on this amazing adventure!
Open to everyone
Live a truly unique experience hiking in the Dominican Republic! We’ll take you on a half-day hike to explore the age-old caves in the remote Los Haitises National Park from Samaná.
Los haitises meaning “hilly land” in Taino language was considered a highland by the Taino people. Stretching over 1,600 km², the park provides beautiful vistas of multiple high rock formations (30m ) mushrooming out of water. Its sinkholes, caverns, and lush mangrove forest along the coast provide a complete adventure package to the hikers.
We’ll begin this beautiful adventure from Sabana de la Mar, departing from the Samaná Bay and reach the Haitises.
Upon reaching, we’ll trek through the green rainforest. You’ll be amazed at the variety of medicinal plants and beautiful birds in the area. And did you know the entertainer- Jurassic Park was shot at one of the locations in this far-away park?
We’ll be able to spot the beautiful Ridgway’s hawk, the Hispaniolan Emerald, herons and pelicans among others. As we’ll complete our journey through the rain forest, we’ll arrive at the magnificent Caño Salado.
After visiting the giant rock formations, we’ll head towards the Caves. These caverns were created due to water erosion. Be prepared to learn about the petroglyphs and ancient drawings from the pre-Columbian era. You’ll have a chance to interpret the age-old Taino artwork!
Next, we’ll take a boat to see the beautiful Cueva de la Arena cave. This 940m long cavern stretches along a cliff to the coast of Samaná Bay and has intriguing pictographs.
Later, we’ll head back to our starting point, having spent an incredible day in the quaint national park.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
