Stunning beach views on Samana vacations

Samana Vacations: Wildlife & Beaches

Samaná is a peninsula on the northeastern shore of the Dominican Republic, known for its stunning wildlife-watching opportunities. Atlantic humpback whales migrate to Samaná’s protected bays every winter. Explore the caverns and forests of Los Haitises National Park, or take a cruise to Cayo Levantado Island where you can bask on the island’s soft white sand. Your Liberty Travel vacation consultant can match you with a Samaná all-inclusive vacation package that will get you up-close to the whales, beaches, and wilderness of Samaná.
