Trip Planner: Caribbean / Dominican Republic / La Altagracia Province / Punta Cana / Manati Park Bavaro
Take a boat out to shallow sandbars that are abundantly populated by rays at aptly named Manati Park Bavaro. (You'll be briefed on how to interact properly with creatures.) Thought to have been originally attracted to the sand bars by fisherman gutting and cleaning their fish, the stingrays still congregate here, though the fisherman have been replaced by tourists who are ready to feed them squid. Don your snorkel and you'll be able to pet, feed, and observe the stingrays as they move around the water.

Beautiful place. Loved the thematic. The workers are great, and they offer a great service. I definitely recommend this place if you have small children's. They will love to see and get to learn about the animals in the park.
Take a lot of drinks with you. First place where i felt that locals were considering me not as a client or tourist, but as a money bag to be emptied. 4 bucks for a can on warm cola - thank you, but no. The park is small but interesting. Best show - dolfins and sea lions, then horses and tribe dances.
