Samaná is famous for mesmerizing views, thousands upon thousands of palms, the whales, its vibrant culture, cuisine — but above all, for the opportunity to totally immerse oneself in nature.

The vibrant arts and crafts scene, handmade natural health and beauty products, such as coconut and cocoa products, sweets, tobacco, rum… the local “secret sauce” that can’t be found anywhere else.
