You will stay in one of the 13 private bungalows at the Samaná Ocean View Resort which is located in the hills, three hours away by car from the capital Santa Domingo. Each bungalow is equipped with a queen-sized bed, bed linen and towels, night table, reading lamp, table and chairs, safe, ceiling fan and closet. Each one also has a bathroom with shower, sink, and toilet.
The most important is the cozy balcony (in six of the bungalows) or the fully-openable picture window (in the other seven of the bungalows) facing the ocean and with breathtaking views on the Samaná Peninsula. The room will be cleaned daily. The main building includes a large open living space and seating area, a bar, a barbecue grill, a sound system, free Wi-Fi and a fully equipped kitchen.
You will have daily yoga on the deck with ocean view, get close to the giants of the sea on a boat trip to watch the humpback whales as it is their season to come into the bay, take walks on the most pristine, white long stretches of sandy Caribbean beaches and explore secret caves and a waterfall on a horseback as well as sampling local Caribbean delights. Full body massage is also included in the price.
January is the month where the gentle giants of the sea, the humpback whales come into the bay. You will be able to see them play from the resort, but you will get close up and watch the whales on a unique boat trip. It will be a once in a lifetime experience.
You will explore the undiscovered treasures of the Samaná Peninsula. On the full-day hike, you will visit Boca del Diablo, Playa Frontón and the rural area around Las Galeras. Starting with a boat in Las Galeras, you will arrive at Playa Fronton after 30 minutes. There, you will stay for two hours, enjoying the beach and the sea as well as drinking fresh coconut water.
Then, you will walk along the unspoiled coastline, discover different fruits and vegetables while hiking along the cultivable land and get to know the village life in La Guázuma. You will feel all the efforts by experiencing the natural way of the Dominican Republic.
The waterfall “Salto El Limon” is located amidst a lush tropical landscape on the peninsula of Samaná, approximately an hour away from Las Galeras. This spectacular waterfall drops 150 feet into a natural, beautiful pool filled with fresh, crystal clear water. You can reach the top of the waterfall on horseback, then hike downwards through the tropical jungle until you reach the bottom of this roaring cascade where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the big natural pool.
The Samaná Ocean View Eco-Lodge is located on top of a hill near the village of La Guázama and the idyllic fishing town Las Galeras on the Samaná Peninsula. This spot is widely recognized as the most beautiful region of the Dominican Republic, primarily due to the thousands of coconut trees and the many pristine beaches.
The local chef will spoil your taste buds with local fruit, vegetables and fresh fish. You will get a taste of the Caribbean and feel fantastic from the inside out.
