There are many activities and restaurants in and around Las Terrenas and Playa Bonita. Tripadvisor provides an excellent overview including other travelers’ reviews. Here below we provide a list of our favorite activities we believe our guests might be particularly interested in…

Mountainbike Excursions and Rental

If you feel like exploring the area of Las Terrenas by bike, check out MTB Vacations DR. They offer organized excursions for all levels. You can also rent bikes for a few days or the whole stay (18 USD per day). We do not recommend to go to town by bicycle as there are too

Limón Waterfall

El Limón Waterfall is only 30 minutes away in the direction of Santa Barbara de Samaná (the main town of the Peninsula of Samaná) and certainly worth a trip. You probably want to join a tour.

Samaná Zipline and Playa del Valle

Samaná Zipline is located in the mountains between Samaná and El Valle in the north coast of the Dominican Republic. You do not need to be a sports pro to do it at all, a little bit of bravery might help, though. We did it many times with children age 4 and above.

Dining on Playa Cosón

Playa Cosón starts just beyond Punta Bonita and is a long, wonderful stretch of nearly white sand and probably the best beach close to the town of Las Terrenas. It’s also your beach walk path to a very nice and simple “feet in the sand” restaurant. It’s straight at the beach.

Restaurants on Playa Bonita

We recommend consulting TripAdvisor to read the latest reviews, but we are happy to provide some information. All the restaurants mentioned below are just an easy stroll away from the villa.

Wave surfing & Body surfing

Playa Bonita is a good surf spot in Las Terrenas for beginners and advanced surfers. There are two surf schools just a few houses away on the beach. They rent surf and stand-up paddleboards and offer private or group classes for all levels.

Stand up Paddling – SUP

Practice your balance, strength, and endurance a mere 2 minutes walk away. There are two shops that rent wave surfing and stand up paddling boards and equipment at Playa Bonita. Johannes, a German citizen, is the owner of Pirata Surf School.

Horseback Riding

Rancho Playa,, is specialized in horseback riding excursions. The ranch is 25 minutes by car from the house. You can find detailed information on their website. If you do not have a rental car, they organize the transfer for you. 

Kite Surfing

Las Terrenas has many kite surfing spots. We have seen experienced kiters starting right in front of the house at Playa Bonita. For all the others, there are a couple of kite schools offering beginner courses and material rental.

Deep Sea Fishing (Sports Fishing)

We are regularly asked if there were deep-sea fishing opportunities in Las Terrenas. Yes, there are! Whereas we have nobody fishing in the family, hence no personal experience, we hear that Sport Fishing Charters Las Terrenas does a good job.
