Las Terrenas

Will be there for a week starting Saturday. Just a few questions. Will be most grateful if someone will oblige.

We land at SDQ around 2pm Saturday. Do you recommend renting a car at airport and driving to LT? Is it a safe and easy drive?Will we even need a car for the whole trip? If not, what's the alternative?

Things to do, things to not do, staying out of trouble and safe, tips and tricks?

Is FV reopened yet?

How's the weather?

Thanks!!

Hi there,

Here's our 2 cents worth.

For the car rental, depends on when your staying in town here. Renting a car could be an option if you're a little out of LT, since you will need one to get around. If you are in the mdidle of town, you can get to everything by foot, so you might want to use a cab to get here.

As for staying safe, commen sense will go a long way. If you do so, no problems will arise. But a diamond Rolex, and huge digital cams around you neck, white socks in your crocs, scream tourist lol

As for FV, we've been open for a week now, PIzza playa opens tmrw, and others are following.

Weather is rain at night for the past week, and sunny days.

Let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

One love

Rachel and Terry

We are staying somewhere close to Calle Marico, I think it's a little outside of town. If so, I guess we will rent a car.

Luckily I have nothing nice so that shouldnt be a problem. HA!

Where is your restaurant located? Is it named Kahunas?

The drive is not bad except for the first part from the airport to the beginning of the highway to Samana. Have the directions embedded in your brain and written down so your copilot can help navigate. Landing at 2pm is cutting it close as it will be 3pm or so before your can clear the airport and get the car and this time of year gets dark sooner. Might want to consider asking your hotel/rental owner what a private transfer would be upon arrival, rent a quad for a few days in LT and then if you need to save a bit take a bus back when departing. The rates you see for car rentals do not give an honest representation as the insurance is often as high as the rental itself. There are also quite a few things you can do from LT without a rental. Guaguas go to Limon where it is easy to arrange a tour to the waterfalls and also to Las Galeras where a boat can be hired to go to some secluded and beautiful beaches. Also there are tour operators in LT and Samana town(an easy guagua ride from LT) that do many different tours. Look on Terry's site (toursamanawithterry) or flora tours to see which adventure suits you best and all is possible :) Happy travels, you'll love Las Terrenas!
