Spotlight on Samana, Dominican Republic
Perfect for whale watching
Head to Samana between January and March to experience one of the area’s biggest attractions. Each year, thousands of humpback whales migrate through the Samana Bay for mating season, giving you the opportunity to witness one of nature’s most magical creatures. Whale watching excursions are the best way to watch them splash about the water up close and personal.
This beach is practically untouched and as picture-perfect as it gets. Playa Rincon spans for three miles filled with soft, white sand and lush palm trees, a stunning view that is beautifully round up with a backdrop of Dominican mountaintops. The beach is secluded and unspoiled, perfect for those who want to see nature at its best. To get here, you’ll need to take a short boat ride from Las Galeras, but the destination is very much worth the trip.
Cayo Levantado is a small island in the Samana Bay that is popular for its beauty and activities offered. Coconut trees line the Cayo Levantado white sand beaches–an idyllic scene of tropical paradise. The calm, shallow waters are perfect for the whole family to enjoy but you also have the option to dive deeper and explore the coral reefs that lie underneath the turquoise waters. Whichever way you choose to spend your day, Cayo Levantado is a beach experience you won’t want to miss out on when visiting Samana.
Los Haitises National Park
Los Haitises National Park is a protected forest reserve with hills, mangroves, limestone caverns and plenty of wildlife. Known for having one of the most important rainforests and mangrove reserves in the Caribbean, nature lovers and eco-tourists will have the time of their lives exploring this vast area. Pictographs found inside the caverns add a bit of mystique and culture to your trip here, making it well worth the boat ride across the bay.
