    • Best things to eat at Bahia Cayo Levantano?

      Cayo Levantado Aug 2, 2014 at 10:27 AM

      Hello, We are going to Samana Aug 9-16 and I have read the food is so so at Bahia Cayo Levantano. Does anyone know what the best items to eat there would be to help offset a bad experience?
      Also, Are there any helicopter transfers available from Samana AZS to the Resort?
      I know they offered it when we went to Punta Cana.

    • Las Galeras vs Las Terrenas

      Las Galeras Oct 30, 2013 at 11:07 AM

      Hi. My friend and I are planning a last minute trip to the DR. Neither of us has ever been there. I've traveled extensively in Central America and am not interested in any all-inclusive resort. We are considering the Samana Peninsula because it seems the most natural and relatively speaking, least commercial of the other DR areas.

      So, we've narrowed our research to Las Terrenas and Las Galeras. Although LG appeals to us because it seems the least touristic, I am kind of concerned that aside from the beach and the tours, it will be way too sleepy. On the other hand, Las Terrenas seems to be a little chaotic, but it appears to have some social things to do other than just the beach.

      Since we will be traveling within the next few days... and it will be the beginning of November... would Las Terrenas be more quiet, and Las Galeras completely dead?

      Sorry for the long discourse...

      From Santo Domingo Las Americas Airport to Las Terrenas by bus?

      Las Terrenas Dec 9, 2012 at 12:48 PM

      My husband and I are supposed to travel from Santo Domingo to Las Terrenas, preferably by bus in few weeks. We're having real hard time finding any information about the bus, also the staff at our hotel doesn't seem to be able to help us.
      Is there some bus company with a route from SD to Las Terrenas and how can we get more info from them? Basically we arrive at 11.30AM and I guess we could catch a bus leaving around 1 or 2 PM.

      Please help =)

    • a cruise ship stop

      Santa Bárbara de Samaná May 6, 2008 at 12:29 PM

      We will be taking a cruise at the end of May and one of their stops is Santa Barbara de Samana. I've looked at other forums and from what I gathered transportation can be costly. We're not sure where we want to go yet either! We are sure we would like to go to a beach but not sure the closest and/or nicest. Can anyone give some advice (thanks in advance!!)

      schedule and things to do.

      Cayo Levantado Feb 5, 2008 at 3:30 PM

      Hello, I'm coming to Cayo Levantado by Cruise ship around Christmas time I'm wondering if there is a schedule for this boat. I'm looking for something to see and do for the day with my family and 2 nephews ages 8 and 13. Also, are there any places to go to where the locals go? I speak Spanish and like to see what a town is like through the eyes of a local vs tourist. Any companies that have a car with driver?

      Thank you,

    • Crime Spree?

      Las Terrenas Nov 24, 2006 at 12:06 PM

      I've been seeing reports of an increase in crime in/around Las Terrenas. Not just random muggings on the beach at night, but some real strong arm rough stuff. Would love to return this coming spring, but am having second thoughts. Is there any validity to what I've been reading?

    • How to get to Las Terrenas from the USA

      Las Terrenas Dec 26, 2004 at 7:53 AM

      My fiance are going on our honeymoon (alarmingly soon, as far as planning ahead is concerned) in Las Terrenas on the North Shore. We need to get flights from Hartford or New York to the DR, and then get from our point-of-entry to Las Terrenas. Any suggestions on the best way to do this/places to do it from/airline companies to do it with? I'm daunted by the prospect of spending half our budget on airfare (we're headed to the DR, in part, because it's the cheapest accessible warm place) between international flights and charter/island hopper planes, so I'm looking to maximize both economy and ease of travel (two lines that rarely intersect, I know!). Thanks for the help.
