Your unforgettable experiences


Humpback whale watching

Samaná, a privileged destination for whale watching. Every year, these impressive creatures migrate to the warm waters of Samaná Bay for reproduction, providing a unique opportunity to witness exciting acrobatics and creating an unforgettable experience.


Cayo Levantado

Cayo Levantado, or Bacardi Island, is a tropical paradise in the Dominican Republic, famous for its white sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters. The name “Isla Bacardi” comes from the fact that the popular rum brand filmed advertisements in this stunning Caribbean setting.


The Lemon waterfall

Located in the The Lemon community in Samana, this stunning waterfall, with a height of approximately 40 meters, forms a natural pool at its base. What stands out in this environment, besides the incredible waterfall, is the abundant vegetation that surrounds the place.


Santa Bárbara de Samaná

It stands out for its charming colorful houses. The name ‘Samaná’ comes from the Taíno language, the indigenous population, and while its exact meaning is debated, some interpretations suggest it could refer to the ‘place where the chief arrives’ or ‘place of arrival of the rain.’



Taste the authentic flavors of the Dominican Republic while you relax in a heavenly environment.
