Sightseeing around the Dominican Republic's Samana region just got an injection of adrenaline. Hop on a buggy for a tour of the region's best hits, including the chart-topping Playa Rincon plus lunch with a view at Monte Azul and relaxation time at La Playita beach.
Christopher Columbus described Samana as ‘the fairest land on the face of the earth', and little has changed more than five centuries later. You'll rip-roar across the land, crossing rivers and scaling hills, to reach a typical plantation to begin with. Discover how coffee, chocolate and cigars are made, then rev your way to the famous Playa Rincon – one of the most beautiful beaches in the Dominican Republic.
It's backed by thick palm forest and fronted by turquoise sea, which you'll get to enjoy for around an hour. Cool off in the emerald waters of Caño Frio river before heading up to Monte Azul restaurant, a TripAdvisor favourite, for lunch with views of the peninsula. It's then a quick 20-minute trip to La Playita beach, your final stop.
