When tourists head for the Dominican Republic, they either go to: Punta Cana, Puerto Plata, or Santo Domingo. That is the reason why you should head to the Samana Peninsula!
This North Coast Peninsula boasts untouched and deserted beaches, soothing azure waters, and coconut-covered slopes that march down to the sea.
So next time you’re feeling adventurous, and are craving for a tropical vacation that’s a little more “off the beaten path,” Samana is one of the Caribbean’s most underrated regions that is quite spectacular.
Punta Cana and Puerto Plata are great – when you wanna have an all inclusive in a resort- but you will spend most of your time surrounded by peeling, pink-skinned tourists. If you’re adventurous and searching for beaches that don’t look like they were attacked by the creators of Disney World, then head to Samana.
You’ll probably need to rent a car to venture into this part of the Dominican Republic, but you will be rewarded with your very own slice of Robinson Crusoe like paradise – not to mention small boutique hotels and beach villas at a quarter the price you would have paid in Punta Cana.
If you’re willing to get off-the-beaten path in the Dominican Republic, here’s a look at what awaits you on the extraordinary Samana Peninsula. We made you three special items on this topic. So you get to know more on amazing SAMANA WATERFALLS and even more on the endless trails in HIKING & TREKKING. Typical for Samana are the marvelous SNORKELING & DIVING spots and facilities for divers.
