Dreaming of….Samana, Dominican Republic

My first visit to this lush part of the Dominican Republic was also my first experience in seeing pictographs:

Found within caves in Los Haites National Park, it was amazing to see these images, created hundreds of years ago and still able to be seen (the the help of a little light) in the 21st century.

Exploring the caves was a marked difference from my usual experience of the Caribbean and especially the Dominican Republic. Very glad they’re preserving their natural history – and that visitors can see its not just a place of calm seas and white sand beaches.
