"El Paraíso" is a rustic getaway situated atop cliffs overlooking Samana Bay. Drawing from natural and local materials, the bungalow style construction blends seamlessly into its surroundings and is truly a one-of-a-kind way to experience the Dominican Republic and its natural beauty.

Surrounded by tropical gardens and overall amazing views, its a very special place where you can immerse yourself in nature, find tranquility and connect with your inner self and your beloved ones.

The space
"El Paraíso" was built to be an extension of the local habitat. Drawing from native materials and landscape, the bungalow-style construction blends seamlessly into the surrounding jungle. All bungalows are open-design floor plans that provide uninterrupted views of Samana Bay and a cool breeze year round without affecting your privacy.

In our extensive gardens, native flora and fauna grow wild and protected. Several species of birds and butterflies call this area home and can be seen. Samana Bay is home to Atlantic Humpback whales that return every year from January to April and may be spotted from the property.

Guest access
All features of the house are available to guests including the social common area, full kitchen, pool area, poolside bar, sitting area, outdoor dining patio and backyard.

Other things to note
The hosts will most likely be in touch every day to make sure you are enjoying your stay and to ensure the safety of the guests. Please feel free to ask for specific requests.

The property has private parking space for up to seven vehicles.

While we have wi-fi on the property, it is very basic and thus limited for messaging and web browsing.

The house has few enclosed spaces and is therefore not considered safe for unsupervised children.

Samaná, Dominican Republic

"El Paraíso" is part of La Guazuma: a small village located in the outskirts of Las Galeras (about an 7 minute drive) and just 30 minutes away from the town of Samana. The locals rarely speak english but they are very humble and friendly.

Las Galeras is a small fishing town where you can buy basic food, very fresh staple foods, seafood and fruits produced in the region. You can also find local art shops.

Overall the Province of Samana has activities available to suite a variety of interests. You may find useful information on websites like Tripadvisor, Lonely Planet and our Guidebook.

We are a couple of veterinarians who specialize in small and exotic animals (and horses!); and have been practicing in Santo domingo for over 33 years. Nature lovers and a great passion for animals has led us to many travel adventures, usually to observe them in their natural habitats around the world. We are conservationists and for us the environment comes first. We love the sea and going sailing in our small catamaran where we've enjoyed all the beautiful beaches of the Bay. Since 1988 we are exploring Samana and all its hidden treasures which we're excited to share with you.
