Samana-Dominican Republic

The stunning area of Samana may very well be one of the Dominican Republic’s best kept secrets.  Home to rugged natural beauty and pristine beaches, Samana offers a wealth of wonders to experience.  Located on the north east coast, the peninsula of Samana will delight nature lovers and adventurers with its unique environment of verdant mountains, long stretches of white sand beaches, and turquoise waters.  Discover charming little towns, breathtaking landscapes, and serene settings perfect for a romantic vacation.

Samana offers many exciting activities and unique adventures.  Discover underwater wonders at excellent dive sites, capture the vibrancy of the sea with snorkelling, explore evocative caves, practice your rock climbing skills, or enjoy horseback riding along beaches and through jungles.  Whale watching in Samana is also an experience not to be missed.  Witness the awe-inspiring majesty of humpback whales as they rise from the water during the mating season from January to March and revel in unforgettable moments that will leave you breathless.

Discover more of the exotic flora and fauna of this ecological paradise at the Los Haitises National Park where you can explore mangrove swamps, islets, and caves.  Other natural attractions include Salto El Limón Waterfall and the Paraíso Caño Hondo eco-tourism project with incredible inland streams.  Another place worth visiting is the islet of Cayo Levantado, with its white sand beaches flanked by tall coconut trees.  A popular location for a full day’s outing, Cayo Levantado is also the perfect place to experience whale watching at its finest.
