The room will be cleaned daily. The main building includes a large open living space and seating area, a bar, a barbecue grill, a sound system, free Wi-Fi and a fully equipped kitchen.

Program

Program

You will have daily yoga on the deck with ocean view, get close to the giants of the sea on a boat trip to watch the humpback whales as it is their season to come into the bay, take walks on the most pristine, white long stretches of sandy Caribbean beaches and explore secret caves and a waterfall on a horseback as well as sampling local Caribbean delights. Full body massage is also included in the price.

Whale watching

January is the month where the gentle giants of the sea, the humpback whales come into the bay. You will be able to see them play from the resort, but you will get close up and watch the whales on a unique boat trip. It will be a once in a lifetime experience.

Adventure hike

You will explore the undiscovered treasures of the Samaná Peninsula. On the full-day hike, you will visit Boca del Diablo, Playa Frontón and the rural area around Las Galeras. Starting with a boat in Las Galeras, you will arrive at Playa Fronton after 30 minutes. There, you will stay for two hours, enjoying the beach and the sea as well as drinking fresh coconut water.

Then, you will walk along the unspoiled coastline, discover different fruits and vegetables while hiking along the cultivable land and get to know the village life in La Guázuma. You will feel all the efforts by experiencing the natural way of the Dominican Republic.

Trip to the waterfall of El Limon including horse riding

The waterfall “Salto El Limon” is located amidst a lush tropical landscape on the peninsula of Samaná, approximately an hour away from Las Galeras. This spectacular waterfall drops 150 feet into a natural, beautiful pool filled with fresh, crystal clear water. You can reach the top of the waterfall on horseback, then hike downwards through the tropical jungle until you reach the bottom of this roaring cascade where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the big natural pool.
