Samana, Dominican Republic

Location:

Samana is tender port.

Sightseeing:

The verdant peninsula of Samana is paradise found for nature enthusiasts. Somewhat remote and removed from the tourist trail, this patch of paradise is home to one of the most important rain forests and mangrove reserves in the Caribbean. And its crystal-clear coast features some of the best diving on the northern side of the Dominican Republic. So pop on your flippers. In some spots you can see up to 150 feet!

 

Some consider Samana Bay to be the best place in the world to watch whales. Every January thousands of Humpbacks migrate south to Samana Bay and during mating season you can find up to 300 at any given time. Come catch a glimpse of these magnificent mammals as they frolic, sing, and show off.

 

Hike or go horseback riding up to the beautiful El Salto del Limón. Its hundred-foot waterfall features a refreshing natural swimming pool – ideal for cooling off after a long hike.

Tours/Excursions/Transportation:

Cayo Levantado is a beautiful private island/beach type resort. If you like the beach, you will love this place!

Currency:

1 Dominican peso = 0.029499 U.S. Dollars

 

There are ATM machines around, some resorts have them, but they are mostly in the cities and towns, not the resort areas, so don’t rely on this as your only source of cash.

Communication:

Do not expect to be able to get around without understanding and being able to speak some Spanish.

 

Most major hotels have internet cafes where you can use their computers to check and send e-mail. There are also many internet cafes in the cities and towns
