I received some information on San Juan and St. Thomas. (Any other suggestions are welcome!) Can anyone share some insight on locations to visit and things to do in Samana in the Dominican Republic?(We have already been to Labadee). We normally like to go sightseeing on our own. Any "watch outs" would also be appreciated.

We did a great catamaran sail/snorkel off of Isla Catalina, aka La Romana. If I'm not mistaken, Samana is in the same area, just a little north. The snorkeling there was great. The water was crystal clear and the sea life was abundant. Some tablemates did a tour of the city (La Romana) on the mainland and said it was very interesting, but long. The local people we met were very nice and I didn't get a feeling of being unsafe at all. Best wishes and hope you have a wonderful cruise!

The best thing to do in Samana is take a tour offered by the cruise line. We tendered into the "town," early to shop and check out the local area. We found it hot, full of children trying to stop you to buy shells and overall, very disappointing. The market offered no shade in the heat of the morning. There was nowhere to stop for a cold drink or snack.
Our catamaran/snorkel trip was excellent! Do take advantage of an organized activity!
