Thank you so much for your advice!

RV429-Samana sounds to me as the most attractive area in DR from the research I have done. Should I just skip Punta Cana all together and stay in Las Terrenas if I am looking to have a great time, witness DR culture and not feel like I am just in another resort which can be anywhere else?

DomingoUK, is Bavaro number 67 on your list or is it a typo? I hesitate to travel to Bavaro?Punta Cana area because it sounds way too crowded and developed-is that correct in your view?

No typo! Bavaro is rated as a great beach by many but it is lined by AI resorts and does not appeal to me. Samana would be a good choice. A quiter beach near Las Terranas is Playa Bonita (strip of small hotels) and Playa Colson.

Agree with Domingo, Las Terenas, Las Galeras areas have many great beaches nearby.

Try and get to Playa Fronton (IMO one of the most beautiful secluded beaches in the area) but be careful, there is always a rip there but it's easy to see and to avoid; Playita, small cosy beach good for swimming and snorkelling with a great comedor for a fresh fish lunch; Rincon, very pretty huge expanse of sand good, for a swim but sometimes there are currents, but not much to see snorkel wise; couple of very good horse riding excursions from Las Galeras will take you to some of the beaches and give you a chance to explore the 'Musical Cave',

Thank you! Is it pretty easy/safe to drive around Samana if you are a good driver?
