Location description from owner

The Dominican Republic region

Samana, the region, is more than just a beach. It has waterfalls, an amazing national park visited by humpback whales each year, amazing birdlife. Las Terrenas town is laid back, verging on shabby chic. A curious mix of French & Italian vibes with the Dominican's fabulous culture. Lots of smiling faces. The French so love the place they have been living here for 20 years and even set up their own school....they have the French Caribbean to choose from and yet they choose Samana.Rent a car and get around. From mid Jan to mid March the humpback whales visit the peninsula and you can take boat trips out and get up close to these amazing creatures. The trip also typically takes in the national park 'Parque de los Haiteses' and Cayo Levantado. El Limón waterfalls are also nearby. Activities wise, if you like sports fishing, it's easy to hire a boat and captain for a half day's fishing trip from several point along the pensinsula. Other fun pasttimes include dinghy sailing, surfing and kite surfing so please don't hestitate to ask reception to point you in the right direction. The village of Las Galeras and its idyllic beach, Playa Rincon, reached by small boat. Definitely worth a visit, and our suggestion for lunch would be El Cabito - perched on a sea-cliff with spectacular views.

Las Terrenas

Balcones acts as a club for wealthy Dominicans that arrive at their luxury turnkey apartments for the weekend from the capital 2 hours drive away. This wouldn't have been possible a couple of years ago as it was a 6 hour drive away but thanks to a new highway it's now ''weekend-able''. What does that mean? Well, 2 things --- 1. wealthy Dominicans are quite demanding and want top end tasteful surroundings, furnishings and finishing so you stand to benefit 2. the region is unspoilt because it was so isolated until recently. As well as the beautiful, kid friendly beach on the doorstep, there are 2 more great beaches on the other side of town 1. Playa Coson with its rollers - good for getting the salt in your hair. Don't miss lunch at Casa Luis - basic but great fish. 2. Playa Bonita again with decent waves and lots of restaurants on its boardwalk. Nighttime in Las Terrenas will probably see you end up at Pueblo de los Pescadores at least one evening - very laid back, great selection of restaurants, no heavy sell. Almost forgot, if you are looking to cook certain meals, then you'll be glad to know there's a couple of supermarkets stacking a large selection of imported foodstuffs.
