Beach Details: These are definitely amongst the best in the country. They unfold in an endless succession of rounded small, medium and big size bays; each of them offers its own special and different charm. They all have in common huge forests of beautiful and tall coconut palms on the back – this is the highest concentration of coconut trees in the world!- so thick and green that if you look at the shore from the clear turquoise water you won’t even realize there is any tourist activity behind them.
The water on most beaches is always calm as they are protected by barrier reefs. Coral reefs are close enough to the coast that they can be reached by simply snorkeling from the beach in a few minutes swim in the crystal clear waters! The color of the water is exceptional, with its varieties of shades of blue and turquoise displaying themselves from the shore into the deeper sea.Beaches are never crowded and there are so many of them along the coast that you can always find a beautiful spot for you
Restaurants & Nightlife Details: Although small, Las Terrenas has a surprisingly wide variety of trendy restaurants and bars where to spend the evening hours. Located mainly directly on the beach, with terraces overlooking the sea just a few steps away, the restaurants offer everywhere surprisingly high quality creative dishes with chefs that have moved here from all over Europe. The large influence of French and Italian cuisine fuses here with the tradition of local food and fresh sea food ingredients. You can also find nice cocktail bars of tasteful design set on the beach or under the palm trees as well as more traditional salsa and meringue clubs where locals and tourists dance together the tropical rhythms under the moonlight !
Excursions & Getting Around: The Samana Peninsula is a natural jewel and it has a lot to offer in terms of excursions and adventure. Apart from literally being able of going to a different beach every day there is a whole variety of places that you will have the chance to visit while you are here. The famous waterfall El Limon is a national celebrity and is only a few kilometers away from Las Terrenas. From January to March thousands of humpback whales gather in the Samana bay from all the north Atlantic for reproduction and they can easily be seen in their natural habitat from one of the authorized boats visiting their sanctuary. Playa Grande, a five kilometers spectacular white beach, is a couple of hours drive from Las Terrenas and the surfers´ town of Cabaret just a few more minutes away from it. Playa Rincon, with its unparalled water colours, can be reached with a short but unforgettable boat ride from the village of Las Galeras, one hour drive from Las Terrenas. Horse riding on the beaches is also available

Why Jose Manuel Mendoza chose Las Terrenas
When we first came to Las Terrenas in 2005 we fell in loved with the combination of beautiful nature, original feeling of town and the surrounding area, the great dinning, the availability of services and the mild and friendly nature of the inhabitants. We decided to purchase a lot of land near the beach we liked the most and built our corner of tropical paradise. We found here a great mix of qualities that we have seen scattered over the years in our travels in many places and we couldn't just pass on the opportunity to set foot on the one place we have found to have it all.
What makes this villa unique
The best quality of this villa is to allow you to live outside. It has this wide doors that open the big living room to the even bigger cane roofed terrace and for the day and even the nights you can enjoy this huge open and ventilated space where you can lay on the hammocks, lounge under the sun, bathe in the pool, eat, write, read, play, sleep, talk, listen to music or dance overlooking the beautiful tropical garden that we have put so much of ourselves into making it what it is.
