Dominican – peninsula Samana

Greetings all,
I wish to show you photos from different places on peninsula Samana. This one of the most remarkable, mysterious and delightful places in Dominican Republic. Santa Barbara de Samana – the oldest regional centre which has appeared with a view of protection of a gulf against piracy invasions in 1756.

Near to Samana there is National Park Los Haitises which involves set of tourists with the tropical beauty. Those who could visit here, hardly will forget the sensations. A wild life of tropics with unique ecosistem – where in pure water dolphins and manaties lap, on rocks the set of swallows and pelicans has found to itself a fine place for nesting, and mangrove thickets organically merge with flora of tropical nature.

The park is famous for one more sight which necessarily should be visited: here there are the mysterious caves spotted with ancient drawings of natives, occupied by the most interesting kinds of bats and having underground lakes with is crystal transparent water. Well, and after research of miracles of Park so it is pleasant to bathe in attracting warm waters of a gulf.

It is possible to visit and remarkable Caribbean treasure – small island under name Cayo Levantado – present paradise for the tourists adoring diving and snorkeling.

Samana is very interesting and to fans of exotic animals: here flights of the humpbacked whales coming here from far Arctic waters of Atlantic gather for some time to arrange love games and to bring into the world the next posterity. Some months (from January till March) humpbacked whales lap in warm waters of a gulf.

  4. All fotos are our property, thanx for the compliment

    Every winter (from february to march) we take a boat trip 3 or 4 times.
    The best day for whale watching was 23th of february last year.

    All the WaterFall fotos – is Salto El Limon. It has 3 level, so, it seems to be a different waterfalls, but it`s not.
