Tucked away between the verdant hills of the Dominican Republic and beautiful waters of the Caribbean Sea, Samaná is the perfect year-round destination. No matter what time of year you choose to visit this hidden gem, you can check things off your travel bucket list. In the summer, escape the busy tourism hot spots and explore off-the-beaten path areas and activities; in the winter, embark on an eco-excursion like whale watching in Samaná Bay.

 

Although there are plenty of other popular destinations in the Dominican Republic, Samaná’s main appeal is its natural beauty and attractions, allowing travelers to explore the miles of turquoise waters, tangled mangroves, scenic beaches and stunning waterfalls.

 

To go along with Samaná’s rich atmosphere and local experience, Bahia Principe Luxury Samaná offers a hidden adults-only retreat. The property’s 149 luxurious rooms at the resort look out over the beautiful Samaná coastline. The resort offers a perfect balance of wellness and relaxation for guests looking to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of life.

 

Immerse in extreme relaxation and harmony at Bahia Spa. The on-site spa overlooking the Samaná Bay offers a unique massage, which features an oil infused with an herb and tree bark national rum. Guests can also choose from special couple massages, hot stone massages, facials and more.

 

During your stay, take advantage of whale-watching opportunities. The Samaná Bay serves as the home to more than 3,000 humpback whales visiting every year from the North Atlantic during breeding and mating season.

 

Another must-see attraction is Los Haitises National Park, which features rich biodiversity and caves marked with native Taino hieroglyphs. Travelers can also go horseback riding through the jungle and visit the beautiful Salto del Limon waterfall.
