The humpback whales are regular visitors in the Bay of Samana. Every year from mid-January until mid-March these huge mammals leave the Arctic to mate and give birth in the protected bay along the Dominican Republic's east coast. The first of the "snowbirds" traveling seasonally to the Dominican Republic, the whales have been wintering in this region for centuries. This is evidenced by old Taino cave paintings in the nearby "Los Haitises" National Park which depict blowing whales. The humpback whale is a water mammal known for their liveliness and their singing. They can attain a length of 15 meters and a weight of up to 30 tons. Their huge front flippers (pectoral fins) can reach one-third of their body length for an impressive display. Before diving, humpback whales bend their backs in the form of a hump and lift their tails high out of the water, hence their name.
During this excursion, you will experience the jungle of the National Park del Este and its direct surroundings. This park is well-known for the excursions to the Islands Saona and Catalina. But the land part of the park is virtually unexplored.
This is no disguised shopping trip like many "Safaris", but this is a real jungle tour. Guided by expert guides and park rangers. With this excursion, you can experience the various parts of the Park: the dense dry jungle, the fauna and flora and the special story of the people who lived in the area before the park was inaugurated. We will visit a magnificent cave in the National Park. We will follow the trail of the Taino Indians to the River Chavon where we will discover the origin of the Taino words "Canoa", "Yuca" and many others. A relaxed day for the active explorer.
When you visit Punta Cana or Bayahibe, or your cruise ship docks at La Romana you don't want to miss this... On the banks of the Rio Chavon lies a tropical jungle paradise: the Tanama Jungle Ranch..... a paradise in the wilderness, where visitors come face to face with some of nature's most beautiful butterflies, hummingbirds, live tarantulas, boa constrictors, iguanas and other hot-weather-happy inhabitants, as well as a wide variety of lush tropical plants including orchids, bromeliads, bananas, coffee, cacao, passionfruit and much more!
This excursion explores the River Chavon and its direct surroundings. The river meanders through a beautiful gorge, the river banks are grown with dense tropical jungle. We will cruise on a traditional riverboat to YucaYena, our Jungle farm on the banks of the river. We'll have lunch at the farm and relax in the Jacuzzi. If you dare you can touch the snake along the fruit trail.
You can also join the Canoe Adventure. Guided by 'Tarzan' we go deep into the jungle. Fun guaranteed. For the less active: you can relax on the farm in the jacuzzi and soak up the jungle atmosphere. On the way back Tarzan will demonstrate the famous Tarzan swing and you can try it yourself...
