As your primary host I have travelled and volunteered in the Dominican Republic. Whilst exploring the country I fell in love with the culture and pristine beaches surrounding Las Terrenas, Samana. Originally from Durham Region (just east of Toronto)  in Ontario, Canada I moved to Las Terrenas where the search for my paradise began. I came across El Nido de las Ballenas, and knew this is what I wanted to have as a home and to share with guests. Living in the Caribbean had shown me a much simpler and holistic way of life. All of our linens are washed in natural soaps. Your head can rest easy knowing that every detail has been well thought out for your ultimate relaxation. 

I enjoy entertaining and have naturally developed a flare for welcoming guests. Every guest is made to feel special, valued, appreciated and most importantly relaxed throughout their stay. 


I pride myself with dedicated staff working together to ensure that your stay at El Nido bungalow and grounds are maintained to the highest standards. We ensure that your experience is similar to a home away from home getaway. Your relaxation and safety are top priority for myself and my staff. 

The bungalows are situated in a gated getaway 350 metres from one of the most stunning beaches on the peninsula. For 50 pesos  (1 USD) you will be in the heart of Las Terrenas surrounded by restaurants and bars. 

We understand how important your travel decisions are and we encourage any questions you may have. Please feel free to contact us anytime and find out how easy it can be for you to find your paradise.

Whale Samana by Kim Beddall

Whale Samaná promotes responsible whale watching as a viable economic alternative to “whaling” and a sustainable, non-lethal, use of the North Atlantic Humpback whale.
