Zone VI

Zone VI

Defined by Decree 91-94, on March 31, 1994, this region comprises the Samaná province. This touristic area is located in the northeastern side of the country, and it is a fertile land enriched with mineral deposits.  Its natural conditions and incipient development of an adequate touristic infrastructure, forecast a solid and sustainable economic and touristic development of this zone. 

Samaná was founded by Governor Francisco Rubio y Peñaranda. It occupies a territory of 989 km2 and has a population of 75,253.
With an arm of land reaching into the sea, as a sign of a friendly invitation, Samaná invites tourists to witness the richness of its soil, covered by white, pink, green and gray marble. Reminiscent of the cretaceous period, Samaná’s marble supplies the entire industry in Santo Domingo.

Its numerous lakes, panoramas and bay, immerse visitors in a pleasurable experience as they await the opportunity to watch humpback whales. These make their appearances each year, from January to March, when they flee the Arctic regions to procreate and care for their young in the Banco de la Plata Sanctuary and La Navidad Bay.  

Up ahead, in Las Terrenas, we find the joint work of natives and foreigners, who enchanted by the magic of the region, have developed an appropriate touristic infrastructure, with excellent installations of hotels, as well as modest inns and comfortable cabins for their guests.  They also offer facilities and guides for aquatic sports. The zone can be reached by air, land or water.

Las Galeras is another one of this province’s touristic areas that stands out for its attractive coast and vegetation.  The palm trees and crystalline water privilege its surroundings with colors that are unique to this area. Small hotels offer top quality services in an atmosphere of absolute tranquility and privacy.

Impressive and famous, the majestic “Salto del Limon” waterfall stands 40 meters high, 300 meters above sea level. Riding a horse to get to this secluded destination will be an incredible adventure that could end on a refreshing dive in the natural swimming pool created by the cascade.

Samana offers virgin beaches, keys, ports and a fascinating national park, Los Haitises, with its moist forest, ample diversity of flora and fauna, historical and cultural resources and, above all, its caves, which are enchanted by pictographs and petroglyphs.

The trip to “Cayo Levantado” (the raised key) is an unforgettable journey for all its visitors, due to the softness of its sand and turquoise, calm and shallow waters that invite to a very pleasant swimming experience.

The province’s gastronomy, which includes coconut as a fundamental ingredient, is another accent that stands out in the zone’s touristic offerings. The palm trees that cover the mountains and decorate the beaches as elegant sentinels give the region unique beauty.
