Destination guide

Samana: a little corner of Dominican paradise

The town of Samana is tucked away along a peninsula of the same name that juts out from the Dominican Republic's northern coast. Travelers are drawn to this paradisal spot of tumbling waterfalls, sweeping bays and laidback ambiance. For some, it's so alluring they end up staying, opening beach bars and restaurants along the town's promenade, the Malecon. Things will tick by at a different pace when you book a waterfront Samana vacation rental. You can spend your days kicking back on the sand or getting the adrenaline pumping with a seemingly endless offering of water sports.

Things to do

Immerse yourself in Samana's atmosphere

This corner of paradise lacks a little when it comes to attractions, it's more about immersing yourself in nature and there's nowhere better than a refreshing dip in El Limon, a 50-meter waterfall that tumbles down into a picture-perfect pool. If you can tear yourself away from the beach, you might want to consider taking a road trip down to the buzzy capital of Santa Domingo. While you're in town, you can hop on board the funicular to see the statue of Cristo Redentor at the summit of Isabel de Torres, or swing by the fascinating fort of San Felipe.


Samana is heaven for watersport fans

You can take your pick of water sports when you stay at a Samana vacation rental. If you wander along the beach, there's no shortage of outfits offering everything from sea kayaks to body boards. Alternatively, consider hopping aboard a private boat charter for a sunny afternoon cruise or exciting sports fishing adventure to reel in a trophy. The fun continues back on dry land. If you're a motorhead, you shouldn't miss hurtling along the coastal trails and sand dunes on ATV quad bikes, while if you have little ones in tow, you can all fly through the canopy treetops on zip-lines.


Forget winter this year in Samana

The winter season is when the Dominican Republic really comes alive. Folks from all over the world come to stay in a Samana vacation rental tucked away in this little corner of paradise and avoid the cold weather back home. While the climate is undoubtedly gorgeous from mid-December to February, it also comes with the most wallet-busting prices. If you want to save a few bucks, try to nab a rental between March and May, when the hurricane season has yet to begin and the prices take a nosedive after the winter high season.

Natural features

Whale-watching in Samana

Those who come and stay in this wild landscape of coastal rock formations and forested hills, which is surprisingly reminiscent of the Mediterranean, are treated to an equally impressive list of wildlife to spot. If you visit at the right time, you can take to the sea to get up close to migrating whales, who come to the warm bay to breed and look after their young. Alternatively, across the bay is Los Haitises National Park, a habitat of rainforest mangroves which are home to more than 200 bird species, including magnificent herons, greedy pelicans and swallows.
