I’m currently planning a trip to the Dominican in September.

I have two questions which I can’t seem to find much about on the web;

1. How to explore the jungle in Samana? Are there any excursions, a guided tour? Or if possible to go alone, where are the best spots? Anything like this around Las Galeras or Las Terrenas?

2. We would like a boat trip around the cano frio but can’t seem to find anything to book?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have been to the DR 4 times, but I only been to the Samana area by cruise ship. I have not exploted the jungle. One visit we did an excursion to Las Terrenas and back.

Discover Samana excursion

There is whale museum there, because in the winter they do whale watching expeditions.
