Interaction with guests
Over the past years, Don and Diana are proud to be part of the exclusive 5% “SUPER HOSTS” for our area. We have lived in Las Terrenas since 2002 and are happy to share our helpful experiences and advise. At the same time, we know when to be hands off and we will respect your privacy.

About the neighbourhood
MONTE PLACIDO is on a hill top overlooking the ocean. The residence is gated and safe. We always enjoy the nice cooling Trade Winds from the Atlantic and therefore have very few mosquitos. We are not ON the BEACH; however, we are centrally located to the many beaches in the area. Drive down our hill and you are in a typical Dominican Village. We love it because you get the feel of the local culture and charming, friendly people. An elementary school is in our neighborhood. If you feel inclined, they are so very happy to accept donations of easy reading books in Spanish or other school supplies. Rancho Playa is also in our neighborhood very close by. They offer horseback riding excursions up the mountains and to the beaches.
Getting around
A short walk down our hill to the main road you will find public transportation. A 'Guagua' pick-up truck goes back and forth to Las Terrenas about every half hour dusk to dawn. Hop on and ride for about one dollar. We also have a trusted “moto-concho” driver. We can call him to bring you back and forth to town on his motorbike(s). Taxis are also available. In addition, we have a friend with a pick-up truck that you can reserve to take you to town and be your designated driver. At the same spot on the main road you can get a bus to and from Santo Domingo three times a day. Many of our guest take a short taxi ride form the airport in Santo Domingo to the bus station for TRANSPORTE LAS TERRENAS. The bus costs RD$400
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Samana (code AZS) 25 miles - Santo Domingo (SDQ) 100 miles: 40.0 km
If you fly into Santo Domingo airport you can take a 10 minute taxi ride to the bus stop at the entrance to Highway 7. There you can take Transporte Las Terrenas. The 1:40 or 3:00 PM bus will pass through Las Terrenas and take you all the way to the Village of La Barbacoa. You tell the driver to stop at Colmado Nene (on your right). At that corner you will see the sign 'Calle Luna'. From the stop at the Colmado it is a 10 minute walk to Monte Placido. Usually, we pick you up at the Colmado. The bus will cost $350 pesos a person (about $8 dollars).
You can take a taxi from the airport in Santo Domingo for about $200 dollars one way. It is a two and a half hour drive. We work with a trusted taxi driver that knows the way here so please inquire.
