The driver was 20 minutes late picking me up. When we got to the site, the group I was supposed to leave with had already left. Another guide took me by myself, so it was essentially a private tour. However, he spoke very little English, and I didn't get a "guide" of the surrounding area so much as a silent ride-along of the countryside and the beach. Even so, my escort did his best to make me comfortable and made sure to take plenty of pictures of me to remember the experience. Overall, the tour was simply fantastic. It was so surreal riding through shaded dirt trails with cows and horses and crops on either side of the road. It was such an authentic experience, where I was technically allowed full control of my horse and sometimes followed my guide off trail into the grass. Macao beach itself was absolutely magical. We got there in time to catch the very last of the sunset. The ocean was tinted with the fiery reds, oranges, and pinks in the sky. It was incredibly beautiful.

Very good excursion. The guide is really nice and the organisation is well. One remark during the horse riding the guide told me that he was a volunteer that frustrated me a lot as I didn’t bring money for this activity as the information wasn’t in the description.I recommend to the local agency to add the tips to the excursion price as I don’t think That I was the only one in this case that is not good for the horses guide volunteer that were really nice and helpful.
After having been collected from your accommodation, you will begin your day out on the water to watch whales in their natural sanctuary. You will visit a lost paradise aboard a certified boat out in the privileged waters of Samaná and Miches Bay. The whale watching sanctuary in Samana Bay is the winter home of a sea giant, an acrobat of the sea: the humpback whale. From January to March, these waters are their stage and refuge as they come here to give birth to their young or to find a partner to perpetuate their species through further generations. Expert guides will take you to enjoy this natural wonder aboard boats that are specially designed for this activity. As you observe these enormous and majestic beings (which can reach 53 feet in length and 40 tons in weight), you will learn more about their biology, ecology and behavior.

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...
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!
The place, beautiful to fish than with the summer seaweed, I was not so heavenly but my daughter had a great time and I was a photographer too :-)
