About the neighborhood
Residence Monte Placido is conveniently located. We are a short five minute drive to the nearest beautiful beach, and a fifteen minute drive to the busy Caribbean town of Las Terrenas. We love our little neighborhood because we are away from the hustle and bustle of town. In a pastoral setting you really get the feel of living in the Dominican Republic among the charming native people.
It is relaxing on Monte Placido. Each house is very private with the terraces facing out to the sea and spectacular views. The gardens are beautifully landscaped with a huge variety of tropical plants. Birds love it here and their soft singing is heard throughout the day.

How to get there
Airport: Samana (code AZS) 25 miles - Santo Domingo (SDQ) 100 miles: 24.9 mi
If you fly into Santo Domingo airport you can take a 10 minute taxi ride to the bus stop at the entrance to Highway 7. There you can take Transporte Las Terrenas. The 1:40 or 3:00 PM bus will pass through Las Terrenas and take you all the way to the Village of La Barbacoa. You tell the driver to stop at Colmado Nene (on your right). At that corner you will see the sign 'Calle Luna'. From the stop at the Colmado it is a 10 minute walk to Monte Placido. Usually, we pick you up at the Colmado. The bus will cost $350 pesos a person (about $8 dollars).
You can take a taxi from the airport in Santo Domingo for about $200 dollars one way. It is a two and a half hour drive. We work with a trusted taxi driver that knows the way here so please inquire.
