About Samuel Pellerin Hurtado

I am Canadian and with the money made in tourism, I bought the land and built my rustic apartments close to Playa Dorada where I worked. Thanks to my father's help for the construction! My son is now taking over...

Samuel Pellerin Hurtado purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Samuel Pellerin Hurtado chose Puerto Plata

I love the running water of Munoz River and surely enjoy swimming! The tropical sceneries are exceptional on our little hill in Munoz. We are also close to the beach and the city. We have developed a unique relationship with locals in the village with our volunteers visiting.

You are very safe with us and you will discover things never revealed to the regular tourist. You will enjoy the company of Dominican and Haitian people in Munoz.
