Los Haitises National Park Samana Reviews
Know the place where 'Pirates of the Caribbean' was filmed Nov 03, 2013
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.
The Park is accesible only by boat. The boat tours leave from Samana, Sanchez and Sabana de la Mar at the park's eastern edge across the bay from Samana. Also you could kayack and that would be great in amongst the mangroves and the spectacular birds.
You can take a one day trip from Samana or you can overnight at the beautiful lodge, Caño Hondo in Sabana de la Mar.
This is where real life pirates hung Indians hid from the Cannibal Caribe Indians and later from the Spanish.
The stunning scenery offer by this place, make it worth for the Hollywood producers to shoot some famous movies as Jurasic Park and Pirates of the Caribbean were filmed.
