If you’re on a cruise ship out in the incredibly blue Caribbean waters, chances are, sooner or later, you’re looking for some place to dock and put some island time in. With the Dominican Republic looming large, you might have the option to port in Samana. If this is the case, take the opportunity. This little port town is known less for the city itself, and more for the wonderful natural landscape it surrounds. People here are friendly and used to tourists wanting to explore the island and its beautiful waterways. Advice for just one day? Grab a bite to eat in town, but head out into the surrounding coastline for the best experience.
La Playita is a great option if you’re just headed into Samana on a cruise ship excursion. Editor’s Note: This recommendation was taken from our Dominican Republic Things to Do blog.
