The Los Haitises, to the southeast of Samana Bay, was declared an official tourist attraction in 1976. The 208 square kilometer area is actually a series of hillocks, divided by narrow gullies, which create the impression of numerous tiny islands or keys. Large sections of Los Haitises are mangrove swamps, populated by protected native species of flora and fauna, such as Hutias (giant rats), turtles, wild pigs, parrots and turtledoves. Fossils and pre-Columbian remains have also been found in the caverns here.
