15 days Puerto Plata and Samaná roundtrip

On this combination trip you will get to know the north and the Samaná peninsula. The absolute highlight of the trip is the excursion to the Cayo Levantado, also called ‘Bacardi Island’ – a dream island known only from postcards. The two kilometre long and about 500 metre wide island is a nature reserve and surrounded by a light to turquoise blue sea. In combination with the gorgeous white sandy beaches, the island offers a breathtaking scenery. A tropical river boat tour leads along the river Sabaneta de Yasica up to La Boca, where the river flows into an untouched stretch of sea.

Exploring the outback

We go by speedboat to the beautiful coral reef of Isla Paraíso  and through the mangrove forests to Punta Rucia for swimming and relaxing on the beach. On a jeep safari you drive with an open truck through the undeveloped outback. You will make short stops to taste the different fruits of the season and to enjoy the wonderful view of the untouched nature. In the middle of the jungle you are going to reach a waterfall, which is considered an insider tip among locals.

This Dominican Republic roundtrip is an ideal opportunity to get to know the north coast and Samaná!
