Exploring the Area

As if you actually need an excuse to go out and explore, technology isn't always all that much help in the country's Samaná Peninsula, a mountainous stretch of land that juts into the Atlantic like a finger from Hispaniola's northeast end. Go view the 170-foot El Limón Waterfall (left) is one of the D.R.'s most spectacular; Los Haitises National Park is one of the Caribbean's largest estuaries, with freshwater caves for swimming; Boating is also a favorite pastime in Samaná.
