Samana Island Hostel
Budget-Oriented Accommodations


Samana, Dominican Republic Island of Hispañola

For Reservations Email:




Samana diving is considered as the best diving of the north coast of the Dominican Republic as the rocky coastline with high cliffs leads to an extraordinary underwater world of drop offs and pinnacles rising from 165 feet to 15 feet of the surface. The dive sites are suitable for divers from beginner to advanced level and there are plentiful corals, sponges, canyon style incisions and hundreds of tropical fish.

The visibility of Samana's transparent blue waters can range from 100-150 feet. The sea floor varies broadly from shallow, reef sites featuring lots of deep undercuts, to systems honeycombed with large caves, tunnels and swim-throughs such as those surrounding the small rock islands of Las Ballenas (The Whales). Beneath the moderate depths of 30 and 50 feet, their vast collection of cave and tunnel formations, are numerous.

Eastern End of the Peninsula, Las Galeras, Samaná


Las Galeras is a pretty small village  located at the extreme Northern East of the Peninsula of Samaná.
You can not go any further; the road stops here on the beach and gives the feeling of being at the end
of the world.


The coral, still alive, is extraordinarily beautiful. We can find here a variety of incredible diving spots : coral gardens,
coral labyrinth, caves, walls, wreck and the famous spot of Cabo Cabrón (a coral tower which is goes down 7  to 55 meters).
Also seen: hawksbill turtles, eagle spotted rays, giant barracudas, colored tropical fish.

After 4 years spent in working, discovering and traveling through the Dominican Republic and after having performed a PADI Diving Instructor training in Switzerland, we finally decided together with my partner to settle here in Las Galeras, pretty small village still preserved of the big tourist poles and located at the extreme Northern East of the Peninsula of Samaná. We could not go further; the road stops here on the beach and gives the feeling to be at the end of the world. e decided to stay there, not only for the charm of this nice village, but also for the most beautiful ocean floors of the Peninsula of Samaná and of the Dominican Republic Northern coast.

The coral, still alive, is extraordinarily beautiful. We can find here a variety of incredible diving spots : coral gardens, coral labyrinth, caves, walls, wreck and the famous spot of Cabo Cabrón (a coral tower which is going down from 7 meters to 55 meters).We can also meet Carey turtles, eagle spotted rays, giant barracudas, colored tropical fish and a lot of other representatives of the local fauna.

The diving-place Cueva Dudu is made of two freshwater-lakes, which are connected with two caves, 85  90 meters long and Stellina Diving periodically organizes day-trips to the Dudu Lake, for divers and people, who don't want to dive.   The Cave Dadu is a must for cave lovers. To access the cave there's a jungle which goes into a tunnel ending up in a lake. It's a beautiful cave with a lot of stalagtites. The entrance has big stalagmites that gives it the aspect of a big mouth.
