The Dominican Tree House Village is located in the jungle of the Samana peninsula, of the Dominican Republic.  It is a resort made up of tree houses, each room a cabin suspended up in the jungle, connected by rope bridges and paths to each other.

How to get there

The closest airport is Samana El Catey (AZS).  From there, it is a 1-hour drive to the resort. Visitors can also fly into Santo Domingo Las Americas (SDQ).  Though SDQ had more flight options, it is 3 hours away.  The resort can arrange pickup from either airport, or you can rent a car and drive yourself.

What to do during your stay

  • Swing off the rope swing into the resort’s own waterfall.
  • Zipline through the jungle on the Caribbean’s highest zipline.
  • Bike to the nearby El Valle beach.
  • Go horseback riding through the jungle.
  • Go on a snorkeling tour of the island.
  • Play board games, take some dance lessons, or enjoy the campfire in the evenings.

What to consider

  • All the rooms are ‘open-air’ style.  There are basically no mosquitos, but mosquito nets are included just in case.
  • There are no poisonous snakes or spiders on the island.
  • There is no cellphone service or Wi-Fi at the resort, which makes it a great place to disconnect.
  • If you do need Wi-Fi during your stay, there is a Wi-Fi café nearby

What it will cost

Rooms range from about $100-$200 per person, per night.
