Las Terrenas Must Do Excursions

Below you will find Las Terrenas Must Do Excursions that we are offering in cooperation with the most experienced and proffessional guy in the city. Frank moved here from Switzerland. He is the owner at Optima Tours Samana and is offering unique experiences since 2016.

Despite the fact that Las Terrenas is always windy or there are waves (check this page with statistics), this part of the Dominican Republic is considered to be one of the most beautiful and it is worth spending at least one day on a trip. The Samana Peninsula is full of wonders – wild beaches with palm trees, green hills, waterfalls, landscape parks and the biggest attraction – watching the whales come here to give birth to their offspring.
