Las Terrenas Real Estate
Las Terrenas Real Estate is a town on the north coast of the Samana peninsula. It is known for its stretches of beautiful sandy beaches and great restaurants. A new modern road from the airport to Las Terrenas winds through mountain passes carved out of the Atlantic side of the mountainside peninsula. The ocean views are breathtaking — as are the colorful terraces carved out of the mountain to provide quick and safe access to Las Terrenas.
Upon arriving in Las Terrenas, you’ll be awed with the calmness of the area and the beautiful sandy beaches lined with tall palms and pastel-colored wooden fishing boats. The beaches are lined with condominium resorts, hotels and quaint bed and breakfast lodging with direct access to the beach.
Accommodations range from studio apartments to lush 5 bedroom penthouses with ocean views. There are plenty of cafés and oceanfront restaurants where people can be found sipping wine over long, leisurely lunches. You will also see mid-day breaks over a café latte. The local shops offer a variety of arts and crafts and many of them are unique handmade items that can be difficult to find anywhere else in the Dominican Republic.
Las Terrenas continuously goes through renovation projects. In some cases, the government constructs new Caribbean-style plazas — at their expense — and leases the new establishments back to local merchants. Interestingly, the whole Samana Peninsula infrastructure is brand new. For example, the new aqueduct in Las Terrenas is now ready and working, and in addition, a new fiber optic system for internet, TV, and telephone is being installed. At this time, all the roads up to Las Galeras on the eastern tip of the Samana Peninsula are now asphalted.
You can enjoy water-sports like snorkeling, diving, windsurfing and kite-boarding. The 4-wheel drive and horseback riding trips are also popular because they allow you to see otherwise non-accessible areas of beauty. Go slowly and you’ll see spectacular views of Samaná Bay and Los Haitises National Park on the south side of the bay. Along the way you’ll see brightly painted Dominican homes as well as the unique farming and vegetation of the area. This includes 60 varieties of palm trees.
The 2012 census indicated that the town of Las Terrenas had a population of 10,865 and the area has a distinct atmosphere influenced by the Mediterranean lifestyle. If you want a more metropolitan lifestyle for a break, or want to do some serious shopping, the drive to Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, is only a 2-hours away.
