It is a simply beautiful place….located at the northeast of Dominican Republic into the peninsula of Samaná.
It has crystal clear beaches and beautiful mountains covered by palm trees…and when I say covered, I mean co-ve-red because Samaná is the place with the biggest concentration of palm trees per square mile…in the World!!!!
The gastronomy is wonderful because the food has French, Italian, Swiss and of course, Dominican influence. Once you step into the zone you realize why the signs of the streets and menus of the restaurants are sometimes even in 4 languages. The typical dish of the zone is the fish fillet in coconut sauce and don’t worry because I already practiced the recipe and I will show it to you very soon. The most famous seafood in this zone are Mahi-Mahi and the Sánchez’s shrimp; very tender and delicious.
Las Terrenas is only two hours away, driving, from Santo Domingo but it also has a new international airport. There are great hotels and lots of attractions for tourists. But everything appeals to Nature like waterfalls, caves, beaches, horse and mule rides, among others. They say that one of the most famous attractions of the zone is the visit of thousands of whales that come for “honeymoon” to mate and that it is a wonderful spectacle. If you visit Las Terrenas you have a big chance of not wanting to leave so come prepared!!
During my short visit I had the honor to get to know outstanding places and wonderful human beings…To all that were part of my trip… thanks for believing that The Kitchen Doesn’t Bite!
