About Las Terrenas: With over 15 miles of deserted, turquoise-water beaches, 'Time' magazine has described Las Terrenas as having one of the last, long stretches of undeveloped beach in the Caribbean.
The balmy climate with its ever-present trade winds and the warm temperature of the sub-tropical Atlantic Ocean combine to provide this part of the island with year-round, delightful weather with only a few degrees difference in temperature between winter and summer.
Las Terrenas has over 60 French, Italian, German and Dominican restaurants, two large, modern supermarkets, exciting night clubs (dancing on the beach!) and unique gift stores with quality handicrafts, clothing and jewelry. Snorkeling, diving, wind surfing and kite boarding are just steps away from The Sky Terrace. Go hiking, mountain biking, zip-lining, horseback riding on the beach or to the beautiful El Limon waterfall. Our property manager can arrange 'quad'rentals and excursions.
The French bakery (just a short walk from The Sky Terrace) is THE place to go for morning coffee and fresh pastries...you will feel like you're in Paris, but with perfect balmy weather!
Walk the never-ending beach and watch the colorful kiteboards or take lessons! Go diving, snorkeling, hiking, mountain biking, or horseback riding on the beach. You can WALK from the Sky Terrace to these Las Terrenas disco and nightclubs:
*Mosquito Bar (Pueblo Pescadora) is a fun lounge and offers excellent margaritas.
*El Toro (Pueblo Pescadora) and MAMA (across from Police station) are great dance spots.
*La Bodega (in the first “mall” on the left from Sky Terrace) a large, Tipico-type bar with live music
About the Owners: Steve and Susan Miller fell in love with Las Terrenas when they first visited the Samana Peninsula to go whale-watching. The Millers live in Louisville, Kentucky, USA and purchased Casa Pura Vida as a vacation home and as a rental property for travelers looking for an alternative to cramped hotel rooms or impersonal all-inclusive resorts. The Sky Terrace was built in spring, 2012 as the owners' private retreat.
How to Travel to Las Terrenas: The easiest and cheapest way to reach Las Terrenas is to fly into El Catey airport (Canadian guests) or Santo Domingo--Los Americas Airport (SDQ), hire a rental car (Budget is approx. $240//week) and then make the easy and beautiful 2 hour drive up the brand new highway which starts just outside the airport and travels through palm plantations and rice paddies. If you fly into El Catey or El Portillo, our manager can pick you up for the same fee as a taxi ($80--$180 US) and he will stop for food or beverages on the way to the apartment!
