Well out on a northern peninsula, Samaná is still a bit of a secret destination among Dominican Republic fans. Its isolation has kept it more unspoiled than other resort areas, but thanks to a new modern airport and increased development activity, the area is sure to gain in popularity.

Whale watching is the most famous activity in this part of the DR, but there are fantastic beaches and beautiful jungle settings as well. If you are looking for a resort area with far more Europeans than Americans then Samaná is a good choice.

Samaná has a few cheaper hotels, but it’s mostly mid-range beach resorts for the European crowd, so it’s not an ideal stop for those on very tight budgets.

Where to stay

There are currently still fewer than 20 major resorts and hotels in Samaná, but the area is set to continue its expansion. There are also quite a few casual hotels and lodges available for those who don’t need any luxury or a spot on the beach. The all-inclusive resorts in the area offer much better value if you can get a good promotional package price.

Getting there

Unless you are driving in a long distance from another part of the DR you’ll be flying into the Samaná El Catey International Airport, which only opened in 2006. It has a large enough runway to land widebody planes from North America and Europe, so it should continue to gain popularity as the area expands its resort selection.

Nonstop flights from:
San Juan, Miami, Montréal-Trudeau, Quebec City, Toronto-Pearson, London-Gatwick, Manchester, Lisbon, Milan, Stockholm

weather advise for AmsterdamWeather advice

Located on a Peninsula, Samana tends to see mostly sunny days with average temperatures in the 70s and 80s.

There are two seasons in the Dominican Republic, a windy season and a rainy season. Even though it’s labeled as the rainy season, there still tends to be a lot of sunshine throughout the day so it’s not something to worry about unless there is a tropical storm or hurricane on the way.

Winter, otherwise known as the windy season, presents slightly lower temperatures and stronger winds. This time of year is perfect for those wishing to escape the northern winters as the sun shines through the months.
