Create an itinerary including Manati Park Bavaro
Take a boat out to shallow sandbars that are abundantly populated by rays at aptly named Manati Park Bavaro. (You'll be briefed on how to interact properly with creatures.) Thought to have been originally attracted to the sand bars by fisherman gutting and cleaning their fish, the stingrays still congregate here, though the fisherman have been replaced by tourists who are ready to feed them squid. Don your snorkel and you'll be able to pet, feed, and observe the stingrays as they move around the water.

  • If you really love animals - Don’t go to this place. Dolphins should swim in the beautiful Caribbean Sea and be free like other animals. Don’t support animals in cages. Instead go to Samana and watch whales from a distance and appreciate the animals in the wild where they are happy.
  • Don't support animal tourism. The dolphins belong in the wild not tiny pools. Monkeys belong in the forest, not in cages.
