Why 2019 is the perfect year to visit Samana

From experiencing of the incredible wonders of nature, to indulging in the most delicious of tropical flavors.

Spend your days in hotels featured amongst the very best and learn a few merengue steps. 2019 is just around the corner and it is calling you to visit Samana.

The year will begin with the spectacular humpback whale-watching season, concluding by the end of march 2019. In fact, the Samana Bay has risen as one of the best scenarios to enjoy whale-watching in the Caribbean.

Samana is perfect for anyone on the lookout for adventure, relaxation or to discover the untouched. Climb your way throught jungle forest and to El Limon Waterfall. Dive into the depths of the Atlantic. Or take a stroll around endless miles of sandy beaches, which remain secluded. A different air in contrast to the liveliness of Punta Cana.

All year long the peninsula offers discerning travelers a range of attractions and reasons to visit Samana –or to rediscover it.

Fried fish with coconut rice and fried plantains is a must, along with the many different coconut deserts. The town of Santa Bárbara de Samaná is a convenient starting point for culinary experiences and whale-watching tours. Therefore either Bahia Principe Luxury Samana or Bahia Principe Grand Cayacoa will be ideal to make camp and plan your sightseeing trips around the province. The latter is ideal for scenic photography, giving your panoramic views of the Samana Bay throughout your stay and from many points of the hotel.

Popular tours include Los Haitises National Park cruises, and day trips to Cayo Levantado Resort, also home to the fan-favorite Cayo Levantado Resort.

Travel north and you have  Bahia Principe Grand El Portillo in La Terrenas, a town that features sophisticated European vibe and lively nightlife scene.

Did you know? Las Terrenas was the peninsula’s original resort area.

As you can see, there is a multitude of reasons to visit Samana and many more not listed in this article. Beaches for all tastes, walking trails for all purposes, climbing and with horseback riding or zip-lines across the forests. Samana is simply perfect for everyone to enjoy themselves.

Bonus! Step out of the resort for a quiet retreat and experience beaches that will produce stories to tell your friends back home. Las Galeras offers just that. Smaller, sleepier, and more remotely located on the peninsula’s eastern tip, an European expat community has given the town a strong French and Italian flavor. Discover a slice of Caribbean bliss at the idyllic and isolated Playa Rincon, or venture to Playa Frontón for world-class snorkeling and diving.

The Privilege Club features four hotels within the province. Should you visit Samana, you will have the chance to choose between the experiences that Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts has enabled for you: Friends & Family, Escape and Treasure.
