    Default DR1 Samana Guide

    Sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism, this compact but very comprehensive Samana Guide is now available online and in print. The 64-page English and Spanish guide presents a selection of the best of Samana chosen by Dominican Republic specialist Dolores *******, who is the editorial director of dr1.
    The guide also focuses on what to do and see in the three main points within this destination - Samana City, Las Galeras and Las Terrenas. Las Terrenas has the most hotel rooms and restaurants, but attractions are equally distributed among all three.
    Even Dominicans who have been to Samana many times will discover new places that they never knew existed to put on their "to go list". The guide is a virtual checklist for best experiences in Samana.
    The guide is part of the DR1 Guide series now available on Santo Domingo, La Romana-Bayahibe and features the DR1 Maps. Maps for the Samana Guide have been enhanced, with hotels indicated, and distances and time estimates for going from point to point.

    You are mean, forcing me to book the next trip to Samana, although I'm just 5 days at home.

    Bodega: in for Bachata/Salsa/Merenque-dancers, mega in for men ;-)
    Pirata bar: in for a drink before Bodega and in between.
    Clandestino (if you mean the one in the barrio): forget it
    The other ones til now I havn't visited, I'm a little restricted with my taste of musik.

    Dolores:

    Great job! You covered it all. It is very comprehensive and a wealth of information for locals and tourists alike. I wouldn't change a thing.
