Dominican Republic & Haiti - Península de Samaná (Chapter)
This is the Península de Samaná chapter from Lonely Planet’s Dominican Republic & Haiti guidebook.
This small slither of land is the antithesis of the Dominican-Caribbean dream in the southeast. Far more laid-back and, in a certain sense, more cosmopolitan, Samaná offers a European vibe as strong as espresso, where escape is the operative word.
- scour the Bahía de Samaná in search of majestic 30-ton humpbacks breaching and diving on a whale-watching trip
- dine precariously above crashing waves quite literally on the edge of the Dominican Republic at Restaurant El Cabito in Las Galeras
- restaurants & accommodations
- take a long, long walk on the gorgeous sand of Playa Rincón
Coverage includes: Eastern Península De Samaná, Samaná, Las Galeras, Western Península De Samaná, Las Terrenas, Playa Bonita and Sánchez.
