Discover the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic, otherwise: the beaches, yes, everyone knows them, but also its mountains and especially its inhabitants. This stationary horseback ride is based north of the island on the peninsula of Samana. This place is magical because of its numerous deserted beaches with white sand and are recognized to be the most beautiful of the country. You will also be impressed by the greenery of this place and the steep relief that surrounds and composes the peninsula. Many mountains and meadows border this place.This area is not part of these big seaside cities like Puerto Plata, Romana or even Punta Cana. No Las Terrenas remains a fishing village where tourism mixes completely with the local and where safety is absolutely present.
