4 weeks are the minimum for..........

staying in las galeras for people, who coming from europe, because there is on the one hand the flight, and on the other hand the transfer to that point .
Try to have the transfer during the day- than you can see a lot of samana .
Bring dollar in small pieces- you need that for buying water or something else.
For the transfer from puerto plata to las galleras calculate between 4,5-7 hours.

to will meet a lot of friendly local people

if you go outside of your hotel.
very helpful: to speak the basics en espanol!

there are a lot of nice places in las galleras

and a lot of nice beaches. go there with local boats direct at the end of las galeras- not so expensive a the boats from the hotel, i stayed, the casa marina .
