Guest access
MONTE PLACIDO is centrally located to explore the many pristine beaches of Samana. For most excursions, tour operators will conveniently pick you up after a short a walk down our hill at the main road intersection. After a busy day adventure, return to our hilltop paradise and relax in the refreshing infinity pool. A favorite pastime is to hang on the edge where the water cascades and sip on a fine cool beverage. Fire up the poolside barbecue! Two separate poolside lounging, and dining areas offer privacy. Inside the pool, you will find a shallow area for children and a deep area for swimming. Shiva’s Cave Yoga Studio is on site. Experience this mystical, magical place with it’s interesting rock formations and special energy. The interior cave chamber is perfect for quiet meditation Look out over the ocean and enjoy your own personal workout on the large wooden deck. The studio can also be used for special events such as weddings, dance lessons and seminars. MONTE PLACIDO offers access to special services. Reserve a massage, which is a soothing indulgence to add to your day. Book an optional “welcome meal” to be ready for your travel weary arrival. Request a cook or chef during your stay. Ask for meals like pizza to be delivered. We can help you access activities you will not find through a tour operator like: hiking in the hills just behind MONTE PLACIDO , fishing with a local from our village , private yoga or belly dance lessons, or horseback riding just 5 minutes from us. Guests will also enjoy free membership at the Las Terrenas Beach and Sailing Club.

Location

Las Terrenas, Samana, Dominican Republic

MONTE PLACIDO is on a hill top overlooking the ocean. The residence is gated and safe. We always enjoy the nice cooling Trade Winds from the Atlantic and therefore have very few mosquitos. We are not ON the BEACH; however, we are centrally located to the many beaches in the area. Drive down our hill and you are in a typical Dominican Village. We love it because you get the feel of the local culture and charming, friendly people. An elementary school is in our neighborhood. If you feel inclined, they are so very happy to accept donations of easy reading books in Spanish or other school supplies. Rancho Playa is also in our neighborhood very close by. They offer horseback riding excursions up the mountains and to the beaches.
