The park constitute a karst (relief in rocks), tropical limestones in mogotes characteristic of these climatic zones of the earth. Its morphology presents hills, corridors and valleys. This unique park has a dense coastal wet forest located in the southern part of Samana Bay, and its an immense reserve full of caves, taino pictographs, humid forests, and hundreds of bird species, many of them endemic.
