Just because I’ve come to the Dominican Republic to study doesn’t mean I shouldn’t have fun, right? So my goal for this year was to explore the island and see as much of it as I can before graduation. Even though I got a sort of late start I’m still determined to make that happen. So, here are a couple of photos from the places I’ve been and the things I’ve gotten the opportunity to experience! Enjoy!
- Isla Saona- It is the largest island that belongs to the Dominican Republic. it’s located in the east in the province of La Altagracia.
- Whale Watching in Samana!
Thousands of humpback whales from the North Atlantic migrate to the waters of the Dominican Republic each winter to mate and give birth. Their most popular winter rendezvous is Silver Bank, the 3,000-square-kilometer reef system approximately 70 miles north east of Puerto Plata. But from there many circulate to other popular areas! One of these gathering places is Samana Bay. More than 1,500 humpbacks visit the bay, with as many as 300 present at any given time during mating season.
