Samaná Day Trips from Punta Cana
The scenic peninsula of Samaná is the Dominican Republic at its most spectacular. Day trips from Punta Cana to Samaná visit protected national parks, picturesque waterfalls, tropical forests, Caribbean-style beaches, and even out into the clear waters in search of whales. Here are your options for Samaná day trips from Punta Cana.

Tours by Road
Many tours by road begin with a bus transfer from Punta Cana to Miches. From there, participants board a speedboat, catamaran, or another vessel for transfers to other locations around Samaná Bay. Some tours head to town or to the island of Cayo Levantado (also known as Bacardi Island). 

Day tours by road typically include visits to a Dominican ranch, safari rides through the Sierra de Samaná mountain range, horseback riding, or trips to the 165-foot (52-meter) El Limón waterfall. Several tours also go to the National Park of Los Haitises, where you can see rare wildlife species, such as solenodon (a raccoon-sized nocturnal mammal with a venomous bite), and caves featuring pictograms created by the Taino people. Some experiences also include whale-watching excursions in Samaná Bay, a popular sighting spot for humpback whales. 

Tours by Air
If you want to squeeze more adventure into your Samaná day trip and enjoy aerial views while you’re at it, a tour by air will help you maximize your time. Flights usually depart early morning from Punta Cana. From there, it’s just a 45-minute journey to Arroyo Barril Airport in Samaná. Some tours by air incorporate horseback rides, cruises to Cayo Levantado, swimming at El Limón waterfall, ranch visits, and honey, coffee, and cacao tastings, as well as whale-watching tours of the bay. 

Things to Know
  • Most tours to Samaná from Punta Cana—whether by land or air—are full-day excursions, typically lasting eight to 12 hours. 
  • Driving from Punta Cana to Miches takes about two hours. 
  • Day tours usually include a Dominican lunch and, in some instances, snacks. 
  • Bring sunscreen and beach essentials as most day tours involve free time at the beach.
