Honestly, I was hoping there's a way shorting the path thru Higuey->Hato Mayor->Sabana de la Mar...ricktoronto said:1. Through Sando Domingo then north via Santiago way.
2. Not really.

Take Autopista Duarte straight and a couple of Km before La Vega (there is a Texaco gas station) you'll see the entrance to San Francisco de Macoris. Cross SFM and head east towards Pimentel and then Nagua. From Nagua its a straight road to Samana. This part should take you another3.5 hours. Count on it to be a 7-8 hour trip at the least.
