In our quest for a couples vacation, we shunned the typical American experience of the all-inclusive resorts, and opted for an independent traveler experience. The Base Camp concept that Tim Hall operates out of the Tubagua Plantation Eco Villiage was the perfect solution.
Tim had insider tips for everything, and helped us to find a slice of the Dominican Republic that was just right for us, as well as being off the beaten path. The Tubagua Base Camp 1 was absolutely lovely - the view was breathtaking and the food was absolutely fantastic. We loved the geckos that were everywhere, and the company of the other guests in the common areas.
Tim took the time to get to know us, and helped craft day trips that met our needs - not to miss is the hike to the waterfalls and a swim in the pools! Then, Tim took the time to arrange the rest of our trip to Las Terranas - ensuring that we had good accommodations, and recommending restaurants and activities near Samana. He even sent us on our way with a cell phone so we could contact him if we had any trouble, or needed Spanish translation.
Back to Tubagua for the last leg of our trip - we had a fantastic time, made much more relaxing with Tim's expertise - thank you!
