Cosmopolitan vacations in lively Las Terrenas

Once little more than a rustic fishing village on the Dominican Republic's picturesque northeastern coast, Las Terrenas has grown into a cosmopolitan resort town, its diverse blend of locals and expats creating a vibrant social scene that's tough to find elsewhere on the peninsula. Alongside the lively lifestyle, you'll find quintessential white-sand beaches, some accessible only by boat, turquoise waters and an array of activities await. Whether you're hanging out with old friends or hoping to make new ones, you'll find Las Terrenas vacation rentals put you right in the heart of it all.

Take the time to explore Las Terrenas

While heading to the nearest beach to savor a cocktail is likely to be on the agenda, taking some time to explore is also a must. From January through March, 1000s of North Atlantic humpback whales migrate to Samana Bay to mate and calf and there's no shortage of boat tours for those keen to grab a closer look. Elsewhere, if you're up for a challenge, a horseback ride through tropical forests beneath the rugged mountainous peaks here will reward your inner adventurer with the chance to take a dip in the crystal-clear swimming hole below the 165-foot Cascada El Limon.

Relax in Las Terrenas

Big-ticket attractions are not the name of the game in Las Terrenas, where days are more likely to be spent relaxing on the sand or exploring the town's colorful main streets. Expect to find them brimming with art stalls, where haggling is both expected and welcomed, and relaxed eateries, where you can munch on fried calamari and sip on a strong rum punch. For something a little different after lunch, why not try your hand at kitesurfing? Introductory lessons are available for much of the year.

Choose your season in Las Terrenas

Demand for Las Terrenas vacation rentals peaks during the winter season of December through February, and the summer months of July and August. These are the times when the best of the weather graces the island, particularly in winter, when things are just a little cooler. Hurricanes are a distinct possibility during August and September, but if you're on the lookout for an attractive rental deal, stays in spring and fall, when the weather is good and rates a little lower, can be an attractive compromise for those keen to enjoy all that this pretty island has to offer.

Day trips from Las Terrenas

To the south, and within day trip distance of your Las Terrenas vacation rental, Los Haitises National Park packs a punch with its postcard-perfect inlets, orchids and mangrove forests. Vacationers head here to see the petroglyphs and pictographs found in the caves of La Linea and San Gabriel, and it's easy to see why the picturesque park was used as a backdrop for scenes in the blockbuster movie Jurassic Park. Most travelers hook up with a local guide to explore the park, occasionally choosing to combine their visit with a trip to Isla Cayo Levantado on a multi-day excursion.
