Located along the northern coast of the Domincan Republic, Samana is a relatively quiet destination. All-inclusive Samana vacation packages may not appeal to those in search of night life, but offer a great option for nature lovers and adventurers. Whale watching is one of the original attractions that drove tourists to explore Samana vacation options in the early days, but Samana package holidays have grown in popularity with the development of this destination as a cruise ship stop. The Cayo Levantado, a 5+ star resort, features a beautiful beach in a secluded island setting. For those in search of an all-inclusive Samana vacation with a private island feel, the Cayo Levantado resort is hard to beat.
All-inclusive Samana vacation packages generally appeal to older families, couples, and those who are well travelled and in search of something different. All-inclusive Samana vacations are a great solute for those who don't wish to be hounded by local vendors – there are no tourist shops here. For those wishing to explore on their Samana package holiday, a taxi is the best way to cover the relatively widespread distances between attractions. The trip from the airport to the all-inclusive Samana vacation resort area takes approximately 40 minutes, and involves quite a transfer. But this is all soon forgotten amid the beautiful and serene setting of a Samana vacation. To best avoid any illness, we recommend that tourists stick with bottled water while on an all-inclusive Samana package holiday.
Samana vacation beaches, featuring beautiful sands and calm, clear waters, vary in quality from one all-inclusive hotel location to the next. The best Samana vacation beach can be found at the El Portillo hotel. The beach at Cayo Levantado features white sand in a private island setting, making this a favourite among all-inclusive Samana vacation tourists. As the landscape varies, so too does the beach access – the Gran Bahia Principe Cayacoa is built on a hilltop, requiring an elevator ride to access the beach. In general, the Samana vacation beaches are good quality, great for walking, with plenty of shade.
The weather in Samana, typical of the Dominican Republic, is generally warm and sunny, with relatively little seasonal fluctuation in temperatures. Situated on a peninsula, this destination enjoys relatively better weather than the rest of the Dominican Republic, even during the rainy season. All-inclusive Samana vacations feature average temperatures of around 80?F, but that can climb into the 90?F during hot summer days. During the winter season, average temperatures drop by a few degrees, but Samana package holidays are still warm and wonderful during this time of the year. As tourists explore the lush, mountainous landscape with its winding roads, they will appreciate the beautiful temperatures and sunshine that accompany an all-inclusive Samana vacation.
Hurricane season, with its unpredictability of storm events, typically lasts from July through December, peaking from mid-August to mid-November. Although Samana vacations are not often impacted by hurricanes, the possibility remains. However, when booking Samana vacation packages, you can rest assured that tour operators will not fly you into a hurricane, and will act fast to get you out in the event of any development. You can find great Samana vacation package deals during hurricane season, and the economic advantage is well worth considering. We recommend that you speak with one of our tripcentral.ca agents to fully understand the great value benefit vs. limited risk associated with travel to this region during hurricane season.
On an all-inclusive Samana package vacation, dining and nightlife are both somewhat limited to the resorts. Shopping too is limited, with some handcrafts and souvenirs available for purchase at the all-inclusive Samana vacation resorts. Given the relative seclusion, banking is generally limited to the all-inclusive Samana vacation hotels only, so some planning is required to ensure that tourists don't run out of cash.
For sporting and nature activities, all-inclusive Samana package holidays may be somewhat limited, but do offer some unique experiences that make this destination a favourite for some. One of the biggest attractions that draws tourists to consider all-inclusive Samana packages is the spectacular whale watching. From January through March, thousands of humpback whales migrate to Samana Bay every year for breeding season. The natural wonder of this spectacle alone may make an all-inclusive Samana vacation worth considering. Other sporting activities include jeep safaris where Samana vacation tourists can explore the local plant and wild life. As well, no all-inclusive Samana package holiday would be complete without taking in some of the few snorkelling and unique diving experiences that are available. For the avid golfer, an all-inclusive Samana vacation package may not be the best option.
