A place that evokes any dawn of the sixteenth century, which feared corsairs laden vessels just make out the coveted Dominican coast, after a long journey tracing expertly whitewater.

The destination is easily accessible from Santo Domingo, through the highway that leads to Santa Barbara de Samana, a municipality that stands out for its colorful colonial houses. It is a city with a large dock where every Friday a craft market is set up and matches with the cruise ships arrival. Interesting to walk around, look and buy some other woodwork, beachwear and semiprecious stones, among others.

From there, the way to this small fishing community at 28 km northeast of Samana ends in a hut on the beach. You can also rent a boat to access by sea. Las Galeras is still not a well-known destination, maybe that is why, it preserve that special charm for those that are considered travelers more than tourists.
