Default Best things to do in Samana, Dominican Republic?

I'm not sure about this stop. Haven't heard too much about this port, and haven't researched it yet.

We were there last year and decided against a tour. Found out that there was a straw market just down the road from where the ship docked. Easy walk, even for me. And, since this is a fairly new port to the cruise ships, the market was interesting and fun. Some true local arts and crafts.

Take a boat tour of the Los Haitises National Park. "This area is known as having one of the most important rainforests and mangrove reserves in the entire Caribbean, complete with keys and caves."

Cool trip!

I haven't been there in 20 years, but I would check out the other 2 beaches on Cayo Levantado - it can be a bit of an adventure to explore the island. I don't recall there being much else to do there but times may well have changed.

Default Things to do in Samana!

There are many awesome things to do in Samana but you must have a plan before you get here. Try the Zip Line, El Limon Waterfalls, ATV Quad tours, see the Whales ( Jan-March), Los Haitises (like mentioned above) or some of our other awesome secluded beaches.

Feel free to contact me for more info.
