Where Did We Stay??
Where Did We Stay?
We stayed at a unique bed and breakfast in Las Galeras. It’s called La Rancheta and its a 5-minute drive from the main street in the jungle. It is a rustic, quiet, relaxing place with very few luxuries. We liked it because it was close to town and it has that “camping feel.” It’s very quiet, and you feel like you in the jungle in the middle of nowhere if you’re interested in checking it out click here for our booking.com link.
The Dominican Treehouse Village and More…
The Dominican Treehouse Village
One of the things we did that was cool on the way home was to stop at the Dominican Treehouse Village. This village is in a beautiful valley with treehouses linked by rope bridges. There is an infinity pool overlooking the jungle, a yoga studio, private firepit areas, with hammocks and swinging chairs. There are many nearby activities which include, ATV’s, zip lining, waterfalls, hiking, whale watching, paddle boarding, and snorkeling to name a few.
There is a rope swing at a waterfall you can hike to, near the Dominican Treehouse Village. It’s cool to see, and we highly suggest that you make time on your way to or from Las Galeras or while in Samana to check this place out.
How Do I Get There?
This is how you get there from Las Galeras: right before you enter into Samana take the Zip Line Road to the right and drive all the way to the end. This video included in this blog shows what it looks like and how to get there.
Back to the question, Am I crazy to drive a scooter from Las Terrenas to Las Galeras??
Summing the whole trip up in a few sentences would be this. It was a fantastic experience, tons of great views, Las Galeras is great, and The DominicanTreehouse hotel was cool. Would we do it again? Probably but not for a long time. When we look back at the trip, there were many situations we put ourselves in that were perhaps not the safest. If you are an experienced rider, it should be no problem. Also, we did this on a scooter, with two people and two backpacks. When we look back at it, we laugh, but I guess when we’re trying to blog to fellow traveling couples we need to be honest. Be aware, take your time and Be SAFE. Hope you enjoy the video.
