Whale watching, Samaná
One of the world’s finest, most dependable wildlife spectacles. More than 4000 humpback whales visit Dominican waters from mid-January through mid-March, during which time you’re almost guaranteed a sighting.
You can truly get away from it all in this idyllic outpost at the far end of the peninsula, offering rugged clifftop walks, secluded coves and a number of great hotels and restaurants.
The island’s finest beach, where you can relax beneath swaying palms, swim in clean, clear waters and then lunch on fresh grilled fish.
Dining out in Las Terrenas
Las Terrenas has a more diverse and higher-quality set of gourmet restaurants than anywhere in the country, and most of them are set right on the beach.
Salto El Limón
An impressive 50m waterfall reached by a gentle horseback trek through pleasant countryside.
