  • 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
