From Punta Cana: Samana Day Trip

1. From Punta Cana: Samana Day Trip

Samaná is a peninsula located on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic. Full of incredible landscapes and pure nature, it is a member of the World's Most Beautiful Bays Club of UNESCO as well as having been classified as a World Eco-Tourism Paradise. Each year between the months of February and March over 3,500 humpback whales mate in the warm coastal waters just off of the coast of the peninsula. Your tour begins with a boat trip from Miches to the Bay of Samaná, accompanied by a beautiful view. After arriving to your location, you will embark on a horseback trek to the majestic 50-meter high Lemon waterfall, which contains a beautiful natural pool below and is surrounded by lush tropical forest. Following your waterfall tour, you will head on a city tour atop a safari truck through the city of Samaná. Discovered by the navigator Christopher Columbus in 1493, this was the point in which the first hostile meeting between Europeans and natives occurred. Following your city tour, you will sit down for a Dominican buffet lunch in a field restaurant, where you can indulge in a tasting of tropical fruits harvested in the area. After lunch, you will be taken in the safari truck back to the dock, after which you will head to Cayo Levantado or "Bacardi Island". After arriving at this 1-kilometer long island, you can enjoy some refreshing free time on its beautiful beaches complete with clear turquoise water. After this free time, you will be ferried back to the mainland before being dropped off back at your accommodation.

What people are saying about El Seibo Province

We took a minibus to the port of Miches, then a boat to Bacardi Island (drinks in the boat) where we had 1h of free time (nothing is included on the island so take the bottles of water offered in the boat). Then we took the boat back to Samana and then a safari bus to the Ranch where we had lunch (it was very good and clean). We then did the horseback ride to the waterfall (each horse is pulled by a local who is only paid with tips) after the ride you have to walk 5/10 min to the waterfall and the road is difficult (slippery stairs, mud, etc.). Then we have some free time at the magnificent waterfall (don't delay too long because afterwards you have to go up all the stairs then take the horses back for the return. Then a short break and we take the opposite route: safari truck / boat / minibus to hotel Great day out to see a different area but strenuous (6am to 9pm) not for everyone!

This day trip was great from start to finish. Easy meeting place for pick up. Our tour guide was Natanael. He was very knowledgeable about the area and was educated in Dominican History so he added that dimension to his information. Samana is a beautiful place.I really liked the panoramic views during the bus ride to Miches and had plenty of time to enjoy the boat ride to Cayo Levantado and Samana bay,the horseback ride to El Limon waterfalls and a delicious Dominican lunch. Very well organized and clean. This was one of the best excursions I have ever experienced. I would recommend this tour and tour operator.

Fantastic trip with lots to absorb, really well paced and feel like this day will be one to remember for many years. The guide offered valuable insights and we really felt like we got a taste of the Dominican lifestyle and culture. The sights were incredible, our Gopro stayed warm throughout the trip! Make sure that you leave some tips to the horseriding assistants, they work really hard! (and perhaps avoid making the mistake of bringing British pounds as they have never seen that before)...

Very good excursion. Amassing view at el limon waterfall, riding the horse was amazing, lunch tasty , the guide Nata was excellent and beach was also nice. The only problem is transportation and communication with the local agency...we did not receive confirmation for exactly time of pick up and we wait for 5:15 am until 7 am in front of hotel...very frustrating to wake up at 4:30...

Very good day ! We discover the El Limon Waterfall after a horseback ride in the jungle accompanied by a guide on horseback (paid with tip). Possibility to swim a little. Then head to Bacardi Island where you can also swim. Be careful though, this excursion is quite long (departure at 6:45 a.m. and return to the hotel around 9 p.m. for us).
