Day trip to Santa Domingo

What are the options for day trips from Samana to Santa Domingo. I know it is a couple of hours drive each way but I would still love to visit.

There are a few excursion operators in Samana who will organise a day trip to the Capital for you or you can hop onto a Caribe Express bus (if you are feeling adventurous) and pick up a guide in the city. Either way it should not be missed

The english speaking walking guide we had had a badge of authentication and we picked him up at the bus station - fab and really knowledgeable. It really was one of the highlights of our holiday he took us to places off the beaten track and filled us in on lots of local gossip and history. However, check out the journey times from Samana and ensure that you can do it in a day if you chose a bus as a taxi back will be very expensive.... lol but as tda says a wonderful city.

If you have the option it is best done as an overnighter. Takes the stress of rushing around off and lets you see much more.

I agree with RV. I live here and have my own vehicle and I still can't stand going to SD and coming back the same day. It's miserable.

If someone else is doing the driving and the hour is no concern then you can do it in a day.

If you went on Caribe Tours bus, you'd get there at 10 am. The last CT bus is at 5 pm. You could do Zona Colonial in that time period. It would be exhausting though, IMHO.
