Dominican Republic - Peninsula de Samana (PDF Chapter)
This is the Península de Samaná chapter from Lonely Planet’s Dominican Repub-lic guidebook.
This sliver of land is the antithesis of the Dominican-Caribbean dream in the southeast, where resorts rule. Far more laid-back, Samaná offers a European vibe as strong as espresso; where escape is the operative word.
