1. Humpback Whale Watching

Between January and March each year, Samaná Bay is a sanctuary for more than 1,500 humpback whales that mate and breed in the warm waters of the Dominican Republic.

During a boat ride you can appreciate and observe these beautiful animals frolicking in the distance, or if you prefer you can also see them from land, at the Whale Observatory in Punta Balandra.

2. Adventure at Salto El limón waterfall

Considered one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the Dominican Republic. This destination captivates as the water falls from more than 50 meters high into a natural pool.

Note that the waterfall is accessible on foot, however, the best way to get there is on horseback as you ride through the lush vegetation.

For the more adventurous, Samaná offers a new entertainment option in Juana Vicente, a destination located a few minutes from Samaná Bay, where visitors can experience the thrill of flying over palm trees and green valleys, while observing spectacular views of Cayo Levantado and Samaná Bay.
