Hey everyone,

Decided to do a little road trip at the start of Jan as some family and friends are coming to visit and I need some accommodation recommendations. If anyone knows of any half decent hotels in the following areas that would be great! nothing to expensive though...

Jarabacoa
Punta Rucia
Las Terrenas/Samana
Sosua

Phone numbers would be great if they aren't online!
Thanks in advance - also can you drive along the coast from Cabarete to Las Terrenas?? I see a road on the map but people in the capital have told me you have to go back down through Santiago? Is that correct?

In Las Terrenas you might try Casa Nina, which is across from Playa Popi or Hotel Mariposa which is on the other end of town down the road from the "Fisherman's Village". Google these and other hotels in Las Terrenas. Check out lasterrenaslive.com. There is a wide range of hotels and pricing.

Chrisdr,

I've stayed twice at the Brisas del Yaque hotel in Jarabacoa. Very nice and exceptionally clean, with hot showers, TV, mini fridge, and super friendly and helpful staff. Can't recall prices, but remember it being very reasonable. It's located just a block from central park and is within walking distance to everything you need. Of course, you can walk to just about anything there, it's so small. If you've never been to Jarabacoa, I highly recommend it. The mountains are beautiful, just look to the south from the hotel. There is a nice road you can take up through the mountains. It ends in a small village. I stopped there and attended the Sunday cock fights. Also, the hotel has an open air restaurant just outside that was very good. If you want to get away from the crowded city for awhile this is a good choice. The people I met there were great. Have fun!!!!

The only time you need to get off the Coastal highway from Cabarete to Las Terrenas is in Nagua...the road cuts through the center of town, then puts you right back on the Ocean. You will actually see the Ocean for about 50% or the trip, especially if you take the new Expressway into Las Terrenas from the beginning of the Samana Peninsula.
