Samana

A paradise situated on the Samana Peninsula on the island of the Dominican Republic formerly spelled Xamaná by its Taino inhabitants and washed by the Atlantic Ocean, the Province of Samaná is a high traffic tourist area and the main center for whale watching in the Caribbean.

Discovered by Columbus in 1493 and officially founded in 1756, the mountainous region of Samaná has a long history of strife and conflict between European settlers, the indigenous people, the Haitians and the Creole people. The town was later settled by American families whose activities and dealings developed the area into a tourist hotspot.

Today, Samana is much more than just a summer vacation for wealthy American families. Tourists from all walks of life flock the area during the winter season or during the North Atlantic humpback whale migration between the 15th of January and the 20th of March for the sea-sand-sun experience or to witness the whale song and dance.

The Province of Samaná is accessible to tourists by cruise ship or airplane at the Samaná El Catey International Airport after which they are welcome to stay at one of the many hotels, hostels, beach clubs, villas, guesthouses, etc. The accommodations range from all-inclusive pampering service, isolated from reality to simple room and board where tourists directly immerse themselves into the island life.

Boasting one of the most beautiful, rugged landscapes in the Dominican Republic, filled with mountains, caverns, caves, waterfalls and lush vegetation, tourists are afforded dramatic sea views, interaction with the natural environment and the ability to explore different surroundings.

When visiting a Caribbean island, it is virtually impossible to not contemplate visiting one of the many beaches. In Samaná, the best beaches are undisputedly located in and around Samaná Bay. Samana Bay also features an islet named Cayo Levantado or “Bacardi Island” which is only accessible by boat. Here, two of the best white sand beaches are located, one of which is open to the public and the other privately owned by a hotel. On the public beach, there are many restaurants and bars which serve a variety of seafood and tropical drinks and also gift shops and spas. The beaches in the Las Terrenas area are livelier, filled with craftsmen and locals to interact with and also bustling pubs and bars while those in the Las Galeras area are more secluded and sleepy. Other beaches in the Samaná Province include Playa Bonita, Playa Punta Popy, Playa Frotón, Playa Cosón, Playa Ricón, etc.

Additionally, activities in the Province of Samana include nature walks, fishing, zip lining, boat tours water sports such as scuba diving and snorkeling and also gambling in the casino.

With so much to see and do, Samana gets thousands of visitors every year. From beautiful beaches to all-inclusive resorts to scenic landscapes and whale watching, the Province Samaná has something in s
