Tropicalia is located in El Seibo province on the southern shores of the Samaná Bay, in the community of Miches. It boasts a uniquely diverse ecosystem of beaches, mountains, mangrove forests, jungle, lagoons and rivers. Miches’ natural attractions include the magnificent beaches of Costa Esmeralda and Playa Arriba, the majestic Cordillera Oriental, and lush prairie landscapes. Its marine-rich environment attracts more than 2,000 humpback whales migrating each year to the Samaná Bay to mate and give birth. Together with historical and cultural landmarks, like the Santa Cruz Church and the Battle of Palo Hincado Monument, these characteristics make Miches an incomparable coastal settlement.
Nearby, Los Haitises National Park exhibits magnificent limestone plateaus, conical hills, caverns and a large mangrove forest. The Wildlife Refuge Lagunas Redonda y Limón features two impressive lagoons, home to several regionally native plant and animal species. La Gina is a spectacular bay outlined by mangrove and coconut forests, currently preserved as a species and habitat management area. The Marine Mammal Sanctuary of the Dominican Republic is the largest marine protected area in the country, covering 25,000 km2 on the Atlantic Coast. It extends from the Banco de La Plata, in the northern limit of the country’s Exclusive Economic Zone, to the coast of El Seibo province.
