Las Terrenas beach

Ultimate guide (May 2024)
Las Terrenas is a popular beach on the northern coast of Samana peninsula, Dominican Republic. The town is so nice, that many expats spend here half a year or even more. The central beach is not very good. However, if you walk aside, you'll find a real tropical paradise with palms. These are also occasional areas on the house reef with good snorkeling. Shore and seabed: sand. [edit]
This beach ranks #7 of the "Best beaches in Dominican Republic"

Hotels [edit]

In Las Terrenas hotels, rooms' fares range from US$30 to US$500 per night. So choice is the best on the entire northern coast of Dominicana. Moreover, the choice is great both in budget and luxury segments.

How to get there [edit]

Main airports in Dominican republic: Punta Cana international airport (PUJ), Santo Domingo international airport (SDQ) and Puerto Plata international airport (POP).

It is convenient to use a taxi, which is relatively inexpensive. For example, a trip from south to north of the country can cost $100.

To move between the small towns you may use minibuses (shuttle buses). Locals call them gua-gua. One ride costs a few dollars. Bus stations are called parada.

There is also good bus transport system in the country. We recommend Caribe Tours and Metro companies. Buses are brand new, and travel from one end of the country to another will cost about $10.

Though all prices given above are in U.S. dollars, it is better to have local money (peso) when traveling around the country.

When to go [edit]

Feel free to relax in Dominicana any time of year. The sea is warmest in summer, but the heat is the most intense as well. And there is also a hurricane season from June to October. On the other side, the winter weather is more comfortable, but seawater at the northern coast is too cold that time.
