    La Rancheta was a wonderful place to stay, with spacious bungalows constructed in a jungle garden setting. The owner, Ron and his wife were incredibly hospitable and helpful.

    After seeing our first booking, and turned that down. Ronald welcomed us with open hands to his La Rancheta. Wonderful place where you feel that Ronald and his family is happy to have you there and takes good care of you. The breakfast was amazing, and the swimmingpool with natural flowing water was a delight. We strongly recomend it!

    Las Terranas & Playa Rincon

    I spent the next two days engaged in about the closest thing to a beach vacation I'd spend in the Dominican Republic with two daytrips from Samana town to other parts of the Peninsula. On Sa*************ed northeast to Las Galeras, a sleepy beach town near its northeastern corner. A short distance away lies Playa Rincon, said to be one of the two or three most beautiful beaches in the Dominican Republic. Playa Rincon is certainly quite remote and ...

    Samana Peninsula - Tropical Beach Paradise

    ... so powerful as to create much danger of riptides.

    The Samana Peninsula is full of small villages filled with
    people who look like they have little to do. You can see why so many Dominicans
    immigrate to New York City. It’s a paradise where you can hang around, twiddle
    your thumbs, go to the beach, and maybe figure out ways to hussle tourists with
    boat excursions to deserted islands or steer them to a place where you can get
    a commission on their shopping or ...

    Our last day - booooo!

    ... on the beach including a hummingbird which you can just see at the top of one of the photos I will add here. On the day when we went on our trip, people from other hotels were going to spend the afternoon on our island's public beach as part of their excursion. There's quite a few shops and restaurants on there during the day. We can go on there if we want to, but there's no point when it's busy with intruders and all the sellers try to sell you stuff. It's much nicer when ...

    We're finally here!

    After an epic journey to get here, we arrived last night about 8 to the hotel. The transfer took about 4 hours and we got to see quite a bit of the Dominican Republic! We saw all kinds of things on the way: lots of palm trees, the coastline, jungley bits, dusty towns, run down shacks, Jackie Nails, people standing in doorways looking, shops in sheds, lots of ...

    Traveling with 'the boy'

    ... the tropics, how to you end up sunburned?

    We wait another twenty minutes, then another twenty more. The boy is doing his best impersonation of a world bank protestor - making lots of noise and messing things up without making a coherent point. Another twenty minutes have passed and we finally have our food…but is it too late?

    In addition to our order, we receive some white rice, and a bowl of beans. I am not a fan of rice and ...
