CAR_El divertido Manatí Park de Bávaro

If you are thinking about spending a nice vacation in the Dominican Republic, there is a place you have to visit, especially if you’re traveling with children: the fabulous Manatí Park in Bavaro. It is a huge park with many games and shows throughout the facilities.

Manatee Park is a source of wealth that has made the Dominican Republic an appropriate destination for a vacation in the Caribbean. It stands out especially for its tropical plants and exuberant flora and fauna. There are wild animals and shows of flamenco music featuring impressive horses. Get close to the iguanas, flamingos, tropical birds, snakes, crabs… You can touch some of them and learn about them thanks to the experienced caretakers who will answer any questions you want to ask them.

You will be in contact with sea lions and dolphins and can swim with the dolphins under the supervision of monitors—an experience you will surely remember.

In the midst of the exuberant tropical flora of Bávaro-Punta Cana, the Taino Village of Manatí Park is a living replica of the culture and folklore of the Dominican Republic. You will be overtaken by the singular beauty of the ritual dances that the performers at Manatee Park will recreate for you before your eyes, taking you to a remote, forgotten past.

Manatee Park, in collaboration with a number of national and international institutions, develops educational and research programs for the reproduction of autochthonous and endangered species of the Dominican Republic: iguanas, caimans, flamingos, tropical birds, snakes, sea lions, parakeets, etc. Your visit to Manatee Park helps fuel the success of these programs.
