Samaná is a peninsula located on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic. Full of incredible landscapes and pure nature, it is a member of the World's Most Beautiful Bays Club of UNESCO as well as having been classified as a World Eco-Tourism Paradise.

What people are saying about Samaná Province

This day trip was great from start to finish. Easy meeting place for pick up. Our tour guide was Natanael. He was very knowledgeable about the area and was educated in Dominican History so he added that dimension to his information. Samana is a beautiful place.I really liked the panoramic views during the bus ride to Miches and had plenty of time to enjoy the boat ride to Cayo Levantado and Samana bay,the horseback ride to El Limon waterfalls and a delicious Dominican lunch. Very well organized and clean. This was one of the best excursions I have ever experienced. I would recommend this tour and tour operator.

Fantastic trip with lots to absorb, really well paced and feel like this day will be one to remember for many years. The guide offered valuable insights and we really felt like we got a taste of the Dominican lifestyle and culture. The sights were incredible, our Gopro stayed warm throughout the trip! Make sure that you leave some tips to the horseriding assistants, they work really hard! (and perhaps avoid making the mistake of bringing British pounds as they have never seen that before)...

Very good excursion. Amassing view at el limon waterfall, riding the horse was amazing, lunch tasty , the guide Nata was excellent and beach was also nice. The only problem is transportation and communication with the local agency...we did not receive confirmation for exactly time of pick up and we wait for 5:15 am until 7 am in front of hotel...very frustrating to wake up at 4:30...

The tour was well organized, there is a lot to offer, very nice tour guide and did everything possible to offer us a successful excursion. We saw the whales too!

Super good excursion! The guides are great! TO DO!
