One particular bonus you get when visiting the Dominican Republic between January and mid March is that it happens to be the 'Whale watching' season. This natural spectacle has begun to attract numerous visitors every year. Up to 10,000 humpback whales make their way thousands of miles south, from their typical 'stomping ground', to cavort, mate and give birth in the warm tropical waters...
The province of Samana is surprisingly one of the lesser known resorts and one of the least discovered in the Dominican Republic.
From Canada, humpback whales come to the Dominican Republic to mate, breed, and raise their offspring here sometime during the middle of January up to the middle of March. It is not a surprise that this season is peak season for tourism in the country.
