Best of Samaná
El Limón Park & Waterfall
This stunning national park is every nature-lover’s playground. Hike or ride on horseback through the lush, mountainous terrain to the cascading El Limón Waterfall where you can take a dip in the refreshing natural lagoon. As you approach the falls, the roughly ½ mile hike can be strenuous for some but is well worth it!
Bridges of Samaná
Often called the “Bridges to Nowhere,” they give you a glimpse into recent history of the city. The string of bridges connecting these tiny islands in the bay were built back in the 1960s as a pathway to a 2-story restaurant and bar. However, the establishment never opened, leaving all the structures abandoned. Now, visitors go to simply stroll across and enjoy breathtaking views of the bay.
Los Haitises National Park
This incredible, unspoiled, nature preserve has enough forest, hills and caves for every traveler to discover. Located in Samaná Bay, the park is home to an abundance of native wildlife species that you won’t find anywhere else. If you look closely, you’ll also find centuries-old paintings and rock carvings from the Taino Native Americans who once lived there. It’s a fun place to explore that you don’t want to miss!
