    This tour consists of a motorcycle ride 4 to doubles, although mota indicate that is individual. Let's start traversing the interior of the villages, we passed a Creek and visit a Dominican House. This saw the inside of a House of a local couple, your garden and we had an exhibition of organic products: ananas, mango, cocoa, coconut, coffee, mamajuana. The Playa Valle is quite isolated, wild and beautiful, the facility the currents are very strong. There are local kids to sell coconut water, didn't get to be warm. This tour had a price of 60 usd for Soltur.

    Visit it for the first time in January 2017, left me amazed, in love. The prices of the local restaurants are affordable and optimal quality. The bus out of the market of Santa Barbara de Samana and costs 75 pesos (1.5 euros) but has no output to the ida or the return hours. He is advised to take a concho (motorcycle taxi), it can be to pay 150-200 pesos (3/4 euros) but worth it. Access is very difficult

    Perfect beach if you want to just relax and enjoy the water. Very few people around (visited in early July). The locals were very friendly. Loved this place!  more »
