Samana Bay represents a prime breeding spot for humpback whales, and many visitors come with the hope of seeing the giant marine creatures. Observe the whales from the shore or take a boat onto the bay to observe from a safe but closer distance. The town along the shore offers shopping for local products, and the area also serves as a nesting site for pelicans and frigate birds, which are sometimes spotted amongst the mangrove trees that line nearby rivers. In town you'll find several markets, but be prepared to be approached by locals looking for a sale. Start your trip to Samana Province by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

Another section by bus to reach a small center where you can enjoy and buy coffee, tea and cocoa, as well as handmade cigars. Prices all in all modest. You reach the Ranch from where you walk a stretch in the woods of about 20 minutes on horseback. In the end a walking stretch a bit challenging for those who are not trained, but nothing impossible. At the end here appears the waterfall, possibility to take a bath and rest. Return, lunch and stop at Cayo Levantado for a bath and some sun. Eventually I return by boat and bus.
Great spot for whale watching during the writer months.
