In fact, Peninsula of Samana have been cut from Hispaniola (and subsequently from Dominican Republic too) for several ages. Being far away from the Capital, inaccessible mountains and deep rainforests have made Samana a favorite shelter for French and English freebooters. Exactly due to the “isolation” Samana have managed to preserve its virgin beauty. Lush tropical greenery and remarkably beautiful beaches make Samana one of the most attractive places in the world. Samana region is a perfect destination for the fans of eco-tourism: unique national park called “Los Haitises” with mangroves, picturesque isles and caves with ancient painting of Taino Indians (Travel Service is the only tour operator providing trips to this fairly outstanding national park); wonderful El Limon waterfall of 40 meters high; the Island of Cayo Levantado where “Bacardi“commercial was filmed and many, many more sightseeings.
Samana is worldwide famous for the fact that every year from January to March it is bay is visited by great population of north Atlantic humpback whales that come there for courtship games and breeding. If you are lucky enough to see this giant mammals graciously waving their fins and jumping out of the water – you will be deeply touched to the bottom of your heart!
