Samana and Cayo Levantado
Port Rating: Not Rated
No dock here so you take shuttle boats to the island. That was where the problem was delaying us from getting off the boat so we missed out scheduled tour. Again Terry and his crew saved the day.
We stopped at a woman's house and toured the living conditions. She was baking fresh bread and we got to taste it. THE BEST BREAD ever. Purchased 2 loafs. Next we took a driving tour into the mountains. Walked to the waterfalls, saw a new in the woods hotel that will be open soon. Learned how to make cigars, toured a farm that grows coffee, coconuts, bananas, cocoa, etc. Had the best hot chocolate (no milk added). Lunch was on the beach and consisted of salad, chicken, fruit and drinks.
