Additional Location Information
Visit and you'll understand why Las Galeras and the Samana Peninsula attract so many international travelers. The area offers miles of often deserted beaches including famous Playa Rincon, which can be reached by car, boat, horse or on foot. Both ends of the 6 km white sand beach have restaurants and one end boasts a fresh water creek, perfect for rinsing the salt off. Fronton Beach, accessible by boat or on foot, is a favorite with technical climbers. Go by boat and your captain can arrange for someone to catch and cook you fresh fish, right on the beach. Madama Beach is one of the cutest beaches ever and is usually deserted. Arrive by horse, boat, or walk from town in about 1 ½ hours. El Valle Beach, off the beaten path, has 2 restaurants. “The longest zip-line in the Caribbean” is nearby, and ends at sweet little Lulu waterfall. Quiet Colorada Beach is a nice spot to hike to with a picnic and Rincon Beach is only 15 minutes away on foot. Boats from Las Galeras can also drop you off and pick you up when you’re ready. La Playita is a few minutes’ walk from Las Galeras and the protected beach is kid-friendly. You can get lunch, a reasonably priced massage right on the beach, snorkel, play volleyball, or rent a chaise lounge and do nada. The main beach, at the end of the road in town, has a cooperative, thatch-roofed restaurant run by 15 local women who take turns cooking and miraculously manage to cooperate most of the time. This is also the spot to rent a boat and captain. Several scenic horseback riding trails take you through colorful gardens and villages on your way to a beach or whale watching lookout. Or arrange to camp on the beach overnight. Several companies offer snorkeling, scuba diving excursions and certification. Las Galeras is a fishing village and the locals will happily take you out to fish for capitan, dorado, etc.The Samana Peninsula is considered one of the top 10 destinations in the world to watch humpback whales and Las Galeras, the closest town, is super busy for the months the whales are here breeding and giving birth, Dec. through March, when bachata, merengue and salsa from the 2 discothèques doesn’t stop until the wee hours. Most Dominicans are terrific dancers so even those in your group who don’t dance will enjoy themselves. Those who do like to dance will have no shortage of willing and eager partners. Though there’s no organized system of biking trails, there are plenty of places to ride, both off and on paved roads. There are also ATV’s and motorcycles for rent locally. I recently went to El Limon waterfall for the first time and I’ve lived here for 10 years. Even though we’d had several months of drought, the amount of water flowing over the falls was impressive. For less than $30 we got horses (I think they were donkeys, but that’s okay ‘cause it’s not so far to fall), guides and a “typical” lunch. You can go on foot, too, but know though that even if you go on donkeyback, the last half mile is STEEP. Not bad on the way down, but if Uncle Albert smokes 2 packs a day and weighs 200 kilos, you might want to leave him at the stable and take lots of photos. Las Terrenas is just past the waterfall so if you get an early start you’ll have time to explore the beaches there, grocery shop at a supermarket, check out some really nice gift and jewelry shops, and/or have dinner. Los Haitises National Park can be an interesting day trip. As can Cayo Levantado, aka Bacardi Island. For such a small, sleepy village, Las Galeras has an impressive variety of restaurants, though during low season many of the European owners close up shop and go to France, Italy or Germany so you may, especially at lunch, find yourself eating the bandera-the flag-which is what Dominicans call their “typical” lunch of white rice, red or black beans and chicken, beef or pork. Great news! We got a bank a few years ago, and sometimes the ATM machine works. We’ve also got a few grocery stores, a decent pharmacy, and Fany has a nice gift with some beautiful things you won’t see elsewhere.
