Samaná: a warm sanctuary for humpback whales

Ballenajorobada

Hundreds of humpback whales travel thousands of miles every year in order to mate and give birth in the Samana Bay. These marine mammals have been conducting this ritual for centuries and move mainly from Iceland, Greenland, Canada and the northern coast of the United States. This amazing spectacle attracts the attention of thousands of people who visit the Samana Bay between January and March. Xëliter Vista Mare is the ideal place to stay and enjoy the humpback whales during this season.
