This lagoon is simply breathtaking and unique in its natural splendor. Move slowly through the shallow water and observe how the rock island was formed over the centuries, providing a place where countless varieties of birds can be seen. In fact, there are more than 120 different documented species of birds, one of which is the "Cigua Palmera" (Palm chat), the Dominican Republic's National Bird. This fantastic primitive landscape was first populated by the Ciboney tribes and later by the Tainos. Their existence is documented in numerous cave paintings of whales, fish, insects and a shaman (Behique). With a little luck you may also get to see a rare West Indies manatee in the lagoon. From here, the boat will take you across the Samana bay to Cayo Levantado where you will enjoy a delicious Dominican lunch and have time to relax on the pristine beach of the Cayo Levantado, also called Bacardi Island.
