Samana: Dominican resorts for the spirited traveller

Columbus called Samaná “the fairest land on the face of the Earth,” and it still is. Isolated until recently from the Dominican Republic’s mainstream tourism, the peninsula features relatively few hotels and all-inclusive resorts and you feel like you’re vacationing in uncharted territory.
