Samaná is a peninsula and bay, located in northeastern Dominican Republic.

It is known for its scenic mountain terrain, tropical rainforests, and isolated beaches in cozy alcoves.

Other features include protected islands that serve as nesting sites for pelicans and frigate birds and mangrove-lined river tributaries.

Adjoining Samana bay is Los Haitises National Park that protect virgin rainforest and is becoming increasingly popular for ecotourism, with local guides hired in Sabana de La Mar. The park includes many caves, some with pre-Columbian pictographs and petroglyphs.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
