SAMANÁ TRAVEL GUIDE
What to eatTry the region’s iconic dish: pescado con coco (fish in coconut sauce), and other coconut-based classics like coconut bread and a delicious coconut cookie called conconote.
What to bring backMamajuana (a bottled Dominican drink consisting of rum, honey and spices) and figurines made from native Guayacan wood, symbols of good luck for the indigenous Taíno people.
Fun FactThe Samaná Bay’s crystalline water welcome more than just sun-seekers between January and March. Every winter, about 2,500 humpback whales swim to these waters to mate, birth and maybe take in some tropical views. Whale watching tours depart from the harbour in Samaná, or you can check out the Museo de las Ballenas year-round.
