We'll keep you as busy or as laid-back as you want! Our peninsula has a lot to do. You can explore the many activities yourself or go on guided tours to many of our attractions. Particularly popular is the boat ride to the world-class beach of Playa Rincon.


Whether you want to swim, scuba dive, deep sea fish with a local fisherman, rock climb the face of Cape Samana, go horseback riding on the beach or to the el Limon waterfall in the mountains, see Samana’s humpback whales, hike the country-side, picnic on a secluded beach, visit the farmer’s market, sail a catamaran or just simply laze in the warmth of the Caribbean sun - all this and more is waiting for you.
“After 8 something hotels we finally found our waterhole,…making us feel as if we were visiting friends instead of staying in just another hotel.” Jenny Vejbin & Glenn Adolfsson, Gottenburg, Sweden. Just ask us and we will arrange everything to make your vacation an enjoyable one.

Of special interest is whale watching from January to April. Almost 5,000 humpback whales return to this part of the Caribbean every year to give birth and mate. And during this time, about 350 whales are in Samana Bay and the waters off Las Galeras.


Excursions out to the whale pods in boats staffed by knowledgeable personnel are readily available and provide an exciting and memorable experience. Samana’s whales are internationally known and are truly a national treasure.
