What people are saying about Samaná Province

Very good excursion. Amassing view at el limon waterfall, riding the horse was amazing, lunch tasty , the guide Nata was excellent and beach was also nice. The only problem is transportation and communication with the local agency...we did not receive confirmation for exactly time of pick up and we wait for 5:15 am until 7 am in front of hotel...very frustrating to wake up at 4:30...

Good experience, incredible places ... only that they should improve logistics, since the guides themselves do not agree on what is the next activity and it becomes a relaxation and time is limited, with a better organization may have more enjoyment. The open bar is only at lunchtime. The guide Vic super good !!!

Very good day, very friendly guide and driver. Staff on the boat very involved in the search for the whales that we were lucky enough to see on several occasions. Magic show, I strongly recommend.

The tour was well organized, there is a lot to offer, very nice tour guide and did everything possible to offer us a successful excursion. We saw the whales too!

Super good excursion! The guides are great! TO DO!
