Whale watching in the Dominican Republic

Whale watching in the Dominican RepublicThe tropical temperatures of the Dominican Republic do not only attract humans trying to escape the winter cold, they also draw up to 5.000 male and female humpback whales every winter looking for warm shallow waters to breed and give birth.

Well known for their “singing” and acrobatic antics, the humpback whales can be spotted around the Samana Peninsula in the North East of the island starting mid-January through to March. The Samana Bay area has been established as a "Sanctuary for the Marine Mammals of the Dominican Republic" by the government since 1986, and has become the winter home of nearly a third of the Atlantic Ocean's humpback whale population.

Callejón de la Loma Cabarete dominican republicCome, put your sneakers on we’re going for a walk.

Sightseeing fun spots is one of our favorite things to do. Each one of them seems to proudly carry it’s own unique style, more like a personality impressed in walls and structure. Our eyes quickly shift from side to side taking it all in: a small truck cruises slowly selling colorfull watermelons, further on a terrace is painted with a political party colors, the fish shop is packed with fresh catches of the day, a funky graffitti displays a black and white woman, a young man with dreadlocks drinks coffee as the dogs sunbathe on the side of the street.
