Las Galeras is a small fishing village surrounded by cerulean waters on the North East Coast on the Samana Peninsula in the Dominican Republic that is literally at the end of the road – far from the big resort towns, and right where you belong. Enjoy a memorable Caribbean getaway here at CASA CARIBE BLANCO - the perfect remedy for those not interested in spending their vacations in a corporate all-inclusive scene. Our home is a place where you can be as active as you want to be, lay out at the beach, explore the tropical jungles, go boating, hiking, horseback riding, swim, kayak, SCUBA dive or snorkeling, you name it.
The Las Galeras is truly a one-of-a-kind tropical wonderland of world-class beaches and lush jungles, where friendly locals and an eclectic international ex-pat community are all ready to welcome you to a comfortably safe outpost that has yet to be "discovered" by the masses.
During the months of January, February, March, and sometimes into the beginning of April, the seas off of Las Galeras are home to migrating Humpback Whales that come to breed, and give birth. Book early and be here to experience these gentle giants at play in their natural waters. Group and private excursions are available and may be booked through your on-site manager.
Life in Las Galeras revolves around the sea. Viewed from your private terrace, the ocean is a less than two-minute stroll from CASA CARIBE BLANCO.

CASA CARIBE BLANCO is “miles away from ordinary” and 2.5 kilometers from the Las Galeras crossroads one and a half of those km’s are down a bumpy country dirt lane. Remember, the best adventures start at the end of the paved road…! Here in Las Galeras, there is less infrastructure so it's a lot more untouched, you're going to have a lot less tourists and a lot more privacy.
There are a number of transport options available should you decide not to rent a car. To get around quickly, the easiest and least expensive way is by Motoconcho, which is a motorbike taxi. Figure 100 RDP from town to CASA CARIBE BLANCO as well as 100 RDP from our home to Playita Beach. To travel to Samana or Las Terrenas, you can travel by local bus, "Gua Gua" (small pickup truck or van taxi) or by regular taxi, which are all available in town at the beach end of the main road. We will provide contact info for trusted transport providers on completion of reservation.
Please be aware that Las Galeras is a small village with only a few small markets that are not as well stocked as your supermarkets at home. There are staples available, of course, and plenty of delicious fresh fruit and seafood, a lovely French bakery has fresh begets and croissants daily. We suggest making a stop off in Samana to get supplies and any specialty items you may require. You can also easily make a half-day trip into Samana town for groceries or a day-trip to Las Terrenas for super market and shopping visit.
This is the place you've been looking for if your idea of Paradise is somewhere miles away from the resorts and all-inclusives that are all around the Caribbean. We're not talking about camping - but a place where you can be as "away from it all" as you care to be.
Please make our home – your home and come to beautiful Las Galeras to truly get away from it all – Dominican Style…!
