Your guide to Samana

All About Samaná

Located on the northeastern coast of the Dominican Republic, the seaside town of Samaná has all the makings of a tropical paradise. Overlooking Samaná Bay, the town is famous for its white-sand beaches, lush rainforests, and cascading waterfalls. From January through March, the turquoise waters just off the coast play host to thousands of humpback whales who come to give birth in the bay. The area is known for its excellent snorkeling and diving, and every morning people line up at the downtown pier to catch fishing charters or to cast a line directly into the water. Samaná’s bustling waterfront promenade is a crayon box come to life, with colorful buildings housing designer beachwear boutiques and shops selling Taíno-inspired ceramics.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Samana

The best time to book your villa in Samaná is between December and April, when the Dominican Republic enjoys plenty of sunshine with minimum chance of rainfall. Between January and March, Samaná organizes celebratory whale-watching ceremonies to observe the migratory humpback whales in action. In summer, the area experiences more humidity and rainfall, but you’re still likely to get several hours of sun each day. Hurricane season starts in June and goes until November, bringing the possibility of heavy tropical storms. The town takes Christmas seriously, with festivities going on all December long and decorations adorning the beaches and restaurants.

Top things to do in Samana

Samaná Bay

A relaxing stroll along the Samaná Bay is a journey into the heart of nature, where crystalline beaches and tropical forests carve out a scenic path. One of the most popular things to do here is hike to local waterfalls and caves decorated with historical indigenous Taíno petroglyphs and pictographs.

El Limón Waterfall

A challenging 1.5-mile hike through the tropical forest will lead you to El Limón Waterfall as it drops 130 feet to a crystal-clear natural pool. The cascade can also be reached by horseback through the steep mountain passes. The waterfall is surrounded by dense vegetation, beautiful hiking trails, and a view of the mountain range.

Cayo Levantado Islands

Samaná’s own paradise island, Cayo Levantado, is a four-nautical-mile boat ride from Samaná’s port. Water sports enthusiasts come here to kayak, swim, and snorkel in the gentle sea surrounding the island. Beachside dance parties and musical nights with local salsa bands are held here regularly.
