“More than an accomodation”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

The Santi´s ranch is located in Limón village, very near to Las Terrenas. The village is quiet and not very big. Everyone who lives in Las Terrenas and around Samana knows Santi and his ranch. Maybe his reputation is due to be one of the most pleasant and happy person we have ever met. He and his wife, son and daughter make you feel like at home. The first night that we stayed there, they drove us to Las Terrenas for having dinner on their own car.

The ranch is a typical countryside house of Dominican Republic. The cabana is cozy, not too big but comfortable decorated with lively colors and clean. The most important thing in the cabana is the mosquito net, essential to avoid being bitten by the huge amount of mosquitos per square meter that exists. We could say we were saved by the mosquito net.

We recommend the Santi´s ranch to everyone who would like to feel a unique experience living as the locals, surrounded by kind and great people. Santi offers excursions to the Limon waterfalls and to the Haitises National Park, we did both and we really enjoyed them. He and his wife also run a restaurant where we had a typical delicious lunch and we definitely recommend visiting and tasting the food they offer. Talking about the price we found the accomodation, excursions and lunch cheap comparing to the other options and considering the treat and what the excursions include.

In a nutshell, if you go to Samana we strongly recommend visiting Santi. You will not regret it. Many thanks to Santi and his family for making us feel like at home.
