SAMANA REEF
samanaJutting out of the DR’s northeastern shore and basking in the ocean, the nature haven that is the Samaná Peninsula is as coveted today as it was in the 16th century. Pirates hid in its lush, palm-filled forests, isolated beaches, and hidden caves, while European and Haitian troops competed over its deep water, protected bay. Today, Samaná–often abbreviated to refer to the entire peninsula–is well connected by land and air, yet it remains the DR’s secluded, paradisiacal escape of wild beaches, coconut plantations, and rainforests It’s as if the approximately 2,500 humpback whales that visit Samaná Bay every year appreciate this natural splendor as much as visitors do.

ALTOS DE CHAVON
altos-de-chavonLa villa de Altos de Chavón nació de una manera realmente peculiar. En 1976, para la construcción de una carretera fue necesario volar una montaña. Charles Bludhorn, presidente de una de las compañías americanas que operaban en la zona, decidió aprovechar la piedra de la montaña para construir una recreación de una aldea mediterránea del siglo XVI. El trabajo fue diseñado y realizado por el cineasta italiano Roberto Coppa y el arquitecto dominicano José Antonio Caro, y su resultado fue tan satisfactorio que recibe miles de visitantes cada día, convirtiéndose en una de las favoritas cosas que hacer en Punta Cana. Altos de Chavón – con preciosas vistas sobre el río homónimo y el mar Caribe – es un centro cultural que alberga talleres artísticos (alfarerías, tejidos, serigrafías), tiendas, galerías de arte, una escuela de diseño de renombre (afiliada a la Parsons School of Design de Nueva York), un museo arqueológico sobre la historia de la zona, la iglesia de San Estanislao y un gran anfiteatro, de corte griego, con capacidad para 5.000 personas.
