Words fail to describe the beaches rimming Cayo Levantado, a small atoll in the middle of Baha de Samanas calm waters. This islet could be the Dominican Republics most romantic hideaway, and judging from the dreamy looks of the couples here, you wont get an argument from them. To get there, venture over to the hillside port city of Samana. Hop on the sometimes scheduled ferries or any itinerant fishing boat for the short 30-minute hour ride over the waves, and make sure you close your mouth while taking in the scenery or the crewman will look at you funny.
The Dominican peso is the official currency of the Dominican Republic.
