        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!

        ... Samana from as high as 1,500 feet. Unfortunately, the heavy rain overnight made me skip the area’s top natural attraction, the Salto de Limon, a waterfall that’s either an hour hike each way along a steep and usually very muddy trail or a guided horse ride trip, and those things scare me. I always think of Christopher Reeve whenever I ride a horse; if a horse could do that to Superman, imagine what one could do to a chubby middle-aged guy like ...

I will add some photos to show you some bits of the resort that we hadn't told you about. The public beach is really nice - we have had some nice walks on there both at night and during sunset. After 6, the beach becomes hotel property so all the boats have to leave. This is the section of the beach that was the setting for the old Bacardi advert. We saw some ...

I didn't like it much. It rained really heavily most of the night but it wasn't very windy so the storm wasn't that intense. We've woken up this morning and it looks like the rain has stopped so hopefully it has passed over. What drama. I hope it doesn't interrupt today's lilo ...

        The stairs are an absolute hazard for a climber like Aaron. The stone floors are perfect for splitting a head, the open-air shelves are great for the boy to pull everything to the floor.

        In fairness, that is not the Chalet’s fault…they aren’t marketing to children. But these are still facts we have to navigate.
