Balcones del Atlantico, A RockResort Balcones del Atlantico, A RockResort Presentation Transcript

  • SAMANÁ Samaná's beauty lies in her simplicity. Here, unspoiled beaches serve as a threshold to vibrant coral reefs while mountain waterfalls intersect lush rain forests. Samaná is a top destination for eco-tourists and naturalists who often come to this off-the-beaten-path peninsula to interact with humpback whales. After all, Samaná is home to one of the largest and best breeding grounds in the world for this elusive mammal.
  • SAMANÁ But while Samaná's beauty is the stuff of legends, its history is as rich as a fairytale. Columbus stopped here on his discovery of the New World but the area didn't become populated until late in 1756 when people began migrating from the Canary Islands. Soon Samaná became a lair for pirates who pillaged passing ships. What followed was a short ownership by Napoleon Bonaparte and later, settlement by freed American slaves. All this history and meshing of cultures has left Samaná as one of the most impressive melting pots in the Dominican Republic. Americanos, descendents of the African-American inhabitants, mixed with Europeans from France, Spain and Italy. Everything is unique here, the people, the food and even the language has a twist all its own.
  • SAMANÁ The town of Samaná is located on the southern side of the peninsula along Samaná Bay. It's a popular base for tourists who plan to participate in whale watching excursions or day trips to Cayo Levantado, both of which leave from the town's port. Samaná's Malecón, or beachfront strip, is the center of activity and features outdoor cafés and small shops.
  • SAMANÁ Actual photo of the Town of Samaná Samaná is heavily populated by Americanos, descendants of freed American slaves. Because of this, the town holds a series of annual harvest festivals; a tradition dating back to the Yam and Rice festivals of West Africa. These lively events are held on Fridays from late August through the end of October at Samaná churches.
  • SAMANÁ INFRASTRUCTURE International Airport El Catey, Samaná / Samaná Port / Panoramic Highway, Santo Domingo – Samaná With three airports less than an hour away, and after the recent opening of the Santo Domingo – Samaná Highway, this location is more accessible than ever. Las Terrenas, in particular, has been popular amongst Europeans, especially the French, leaving their trademark in the cuisine, the architecture and adding their special type of flavor to the local cultural melting pot. Italians, Germans, Spaniards and descendants of freed African-American slaves, add an infinite array of shapes, colors and tastes to this small beach town.
  • THE STUNNING NATURAL ATTRACTIONS OF SAMANÁ
  • WHALE WATCHING SAMANÁ IS A HUMPBACK WHALE SANCTUARY AND MARINE CONSERVATION AREA. Between January 15th and March 25th each year, thousands of humpback whales of the North Atlantic population migrate to the Samaná Bay region, located on the east coast of the DR.
  • EL LIMÓN A MULE RIDE WILL TAKE YOU TO THE MAGNIFICENT EL LIMÓN FALLS.  Found in the Samaná Peninsula area near the town of El Limón, this stunning waterfall is accessible by horse. The ride takes approximately two and a half hours round trip. As the falls come into sight, the horses are Tethered at a small station where drinks are provided before making the rest of the trek on foot to the swimming hole at the base of the thundering and picturesque El Limón falls.
  • LOS HAITISES DISCOVER LOS HAITISES NATIONAL PARK AN EXPERIENCE OF PRISTINE MANGROVES, VIRGIN WILDLIFE, AND ARCHEOLOGICAL WONDERS Los Haitises takes you on a tour to the past, nature as seen by the conquistadores. Taino caves, subtropical forests, and mangrove swamps blend to make this the perfect Caribbean adventure.
  • CAYO LEVANTADO A SECLUDED ISLAND SURROUNDED BY TURQUOISE CARIBBEAN WATERS Cayo Levantado is a small island located a few miles offshore from the town of Samaná. Because it gets busy, it is recommended that visitors take the ferry early. It departs from the main port in Samaná. On the opposite side of the island, smaller beaches are less frequented. The six-square mile raised coral key is known as "Bacardi Island” having served as the backdrop for the company's advertising campaign in the 1970s. Located in the Bay of Samaná, the island features rich vegetation, fishing and snorkeling. Tours can be arranged out of Samaná.
  • SIMPLE LUXURY Balcones is the dream of a lifestyle come true. It’s the magic fusion of design, architecture, culinary arts, and sensations.
  • BEAUTIFULLY PRESERVED BEACHES AROUND SAMANÁ
  • PLAYA LAS TERRENAS PARADISE LOOKS JUST LIKE IT A combination of translucent waters and incredibly fine sand, a feast for the senses. Las Terrenas beach is the ideal place to enjoy a sunny day in one of the less exploited beaches of the area.
  • PLAYA RINCON ONE OF THE WORLD’S TOP 10 MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACHES Condé Nast Traveler ranked this beach as one of the world's 10 best. It's so splendid, in fact, that many Dominicans refer to it as the most beautiful on the island. Over three miles long, Playa Rincón is surrounded by coconut palms and almond trees, not to mention a 2,000 foot mountain on one end. Again, the best way to get to this isolated beach is by boat; a ride that is definitely worth it. (Boat rides are available from Las Galeras.)
  • PLAYA COSÓN A MUST IN LAS TERRENAS, SAMANÁ A pleasant walk along the shore will take you to Playa Cosón, a secluded beach with rocky cliffs and brilliantly sand. This serene nook is perfect for those who prefer to contemplate and enjoy the beauty of nature in solitude.
  • PLAYA ESCONDIDA YOU’LL BE LUCKY IF YOU FIND IT Escondida “Hidden Beach” can only be reached by boat. It boasts both striking snorkeling and solitude.
  • PLAYA BONITA BONITA MEANS PRETTY A quiet eight mile beach located on the north side of Samaná peninsula, Playa Bonita looks like something out of a movie set. Featuring a white sandy beach and clear turquoise waters, the area is framed by a few beach houses that only add to its charm.
  • PLAYA LAS FLECHAS A LEGEND Playa Las Flechas translates to Beach of the Arrows. Legend has it this beach, located on the southeast tip of Samana peninsula, is named after a battle between Christopher Columbus and the Taino Indians, who occupied the land. A fairly quiet destination, Playa Las Flechas looks out onto Cayo Levantado.
  • LAS TERRENAS - SAMANÁ
  • LAS TERRENAS, SAMANÁ MAIN STREET “CAMINO DE LA PLAYA” Perhaps the most popular destination on the peninsula is the resort town of Las Terrenas. Run primarily by French expatriates, Las Terrenas offers good variety of accommodations, ranging from all-inclusive hotels to fashionable boutiques. Visitors to Las Terrenas have no shortage of things to do. The town features several small malls, a wide variety of restaurants and even discos. Despite this, the highlight of a visit to Las Terrenas is the beach.
  • LAS TERRENAS, SAMANÁ EXPERIENCE A CARIBBEAN MEDLEY OF COLORFUL AND EXOTIC CULINARY TRENDS Located on the north coast of the Samaná peninsula, Las Terrenas beach stretches one mile on either side of the town. Speckled with coconut palms, it's the perfect destination in which to enjoy a mix of sand, surf, and shade.  Casual restaurants are plentiful here, many of which are owned by expatriates from Europe (especially France) and North America.
