Hotel at a Glance: Balcones del Atlantico

Rumor has it Christopher Columbus once dubbed the Samaná Peninsula “the fairest land on the face of the earth.” The thick tract of land juts into the Atlantic Ocean on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic. You can survey the peninsula from a hammock on the private beach at Balcones del Atlantico. The decor of the hotel is easy on the eyes, too—interior designer Patricia Reid decorated the villa suites with bright, tropical colors, hand-carved furniture, and local artwork.

  • Onsite dining at the beachside Porto restaurant, known for its fresh seafood
  • Recommended entrees: Lobster or Shrimp Risotto and Peruvian-style shrimp ceviche
  • Lounge around on your room's private, landscaped terrace.
  • Must-see nearby attraction: El Salto del Limón waterfall, a 170-foot cascade that plummets into an aquamarine pool
  • Best beach for windsurfing and kiteboarding: Playa Punta Popy

Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic: Tropical Beauty on the Samaná Peninsula

Once a rustic fishing village, Las Terrenas is today an up-and-coming beach destination located on the Dominican Republic's Samaná Peninsula. Over the past two decades, the town's population of expats has grown, creating a diverse mix of residents reflected in the local restaurants. You can find French and Spanish cuisine, authentic Dominican entrees, and even thin-crust pizza.

Accessible only via boat, Los Haitises National Park is a must-see attraction. You can arrange for a tour of the park’s islets, cays, and mangrove swamps— keep an eye out for blue herons, pelicans, and Hispaniolan parakeets along the way. The national park also has an intricate cave system worth exploring. The cavern walls are adorned with petroglyphs left by Taino Indians, the island’s original inhabitants.
