I'm thinking of visiting the Gran Bahia Principe Cayacoa later this year but was wondering how easy it is to take day trips from here, preferably independently. I'd like to see some of the real DR, some of the nature, visit other beaches etc.
Is this easy to do from here, with local buses or a hire car, or would we have to travel to far?
Is there much to see on the Samana peninsula itself?
Or... would I be better off staying in the Puerto Plata region for trips out?
