I stayed there for one month mid Jan to mid Febuary. I just wanted a place where I can relax and kill time of the cold Toronto winter. I met Sam the son of the owner Diane a good young man he showed me around and drove me into Puerto Plata to drop me off at a local grocery store....

My teen daughter and I stayed here for 2 months, last year. The apt we had was a 2 bedroom. Open and airy. However, we LACKED privacy and the neighbors could hear your every move and sounds. Because the windows did not have glass in them. Smoking is allowed outside your apt. So, when your neighbor smokes, it blows into...

If you're looking for fancy accommodations or frills by tourist standards, this might not be the place for you. But, if you want the ultimate Dominican Republic experience, this is the place. The setting is magical, at the head of a small river, on the edge of the jungle, yet in close proximity to the popular towns of Puerto Plata...

Diane and her son Sam are very hospitable. They try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. If you are used to resorts this is not the place for you. Everything they offer is outlined in their website. Surroundings are nice, river is ok to cool off in. Bar/restaurant ok. Some dogs barking at night. 7 km from the...

First off its important for people to understand that this is a rustic camp set in the jungle on a beautiful bend in the Munoz river. It is the perfect place for those who recognize that it is not (nor does it claim to be) a resort. If you are a traveler who wants to experience the natural beauty of...

Suncamp is a must for every nature seeker visiting the Dominican Republic. Especially the house on top of the hill - where we enjoyed our stay. A basic, yet very charming and isolated residence, surrounded by overwhelming nature. But the real star of the show is Diane. The charming Canadian wonderwoman, kindness itself. She'll help you with wathever you need...

I've just returned from spending 2 weeks at SunCampDR and I can't wait to return! I was a little nervous about going somewhere so different especially as I was travelling alone but my fears soon vanished the moment I arrived. I was made to feel very welcome by everyone there and it had the feeling of being one big family...

I was here with friends for three weeks while we vacationed in the Dominican Republic. SuncampDR was an amazing place to stay. The people were very friendly and helpful and the nature around it is very nice. There is a nice bend in the river that flows by it, which forms a nice pool in which you can swim. It...
