Enough things to do to keep you busy for an entire week!
The Dominican Tree House Village is a gem in it’s own right, but one of the things that makes the experience so awesome are the world-class excursions we’ve put together. Each one has been carefully designed and tweaked over time to give you a truly off-the-beaten-path experience that provides the perfect balance of fun, adventure, sight-seeing, exploring, and relaxing.
Our guides are incredibly personal and fun, and with them you will experience the absolute best that authentic Dominican Culture has to offer. Every excursion we run includes a delicious, traditional meal that is hand-prepared and as fresh as you can imagine. Enjoy options ranging from fish caught that same day and cooked over an open fire to the mouth-watering Caribbean fried chicken that this area is famous for. You’ll have opportunities along the way to try fresh exotic fruits and Dominican products – pure coffee, freshly ground cacao, vanilla, banana, plantain, pineapple, passionfruit, avocado, and mango just to name a few.
No one wants to feel like a trashy tourist when exploring a new country. We recognize that at the Tree House Village and you see that reflected in our tours. Enjoy fun times, real experiences, and make lasting memories with some of the coolest people you’ll ever meet while romping around with other like minded Tree House guests.

The owner of the Tree House Village is also the man who had the vision to pioneer an impressive zipline in the mountains between Samaná and the North Coast. He hired German engineers and spared no expense in building the tallest and highest rated zip line experience in all of the Caribbean. From what looks like a wrecked ship on top of the mountain, visitors begin their downhill voyage by walking the plank. Reaching speeds of up to 40mph, you criss-cross from platform to platform taking in the 360-degree breathtaking views! After an exhilarating ride across 12 lines and 13 stations, you will reach the bottom and be greeted with a glass of local rum and coke (complements of the friendly staff). The zipline drops you off right near a seasonal waterfall, Cascada Lulu, and the back entrance of the Dominican Tree House Village.
Enjoy a full day of excitement, fun, culture, and relaxation while we guide you to one of the top 5 beaches in the world, Playa Rincon. Heading out on ATV’s we will travel along the road to Boca Del Diablo, a beautiful ride alongside volcanic cliffs and a gorgeous ocean view. We’ll ride to the beautiful la Playita Beach for lunch and afterward to the world-class Playa Rincon while taking in some of the most breathtaking views in all the country. At Playa Rincon, you’ll be able to explore the long, solitary stretches of white sand beaches that feel like memory foam beneath your feet. Towards the end of the beach you will be able to wash off in a beautiful freshwater river that flows directly in the ocean. Finally we will head to a Casa Tipica (local home) where we learn about how to make coffee, chocolate, rum, local life and more. With so much to do, it is easy to see why this is our most popular excursion.
We will set out on horseback to the Limón Waterfall, located deep within a tropical forest on the Samaná Peninsula. Each guest will have a guide for the trip to help with horses and whatever else you’ll need. You are the V.I.P! After the horse ride you will find yourself at the foot of the spectacular 55-meter waterfall where you can swim, lounge, take photos, watch the locals leap off of the cliffs, or even jump yourself! After enjoying the crystal clear waters of Limón, we will get treated to an excellent Dominican home-style meal. Then we head to Cosón Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Las Terrenas. Here you will feel as though you have stepped onto the set of a movie. You can relax, play in the waves or try your hand at surfing or body boarding. Final stop is a delicious French bakery where you will be able to satisfy your sugar tooth before heading back to the Tree House Village.
On our newest and one of our most popular tours, you’ll go to the remote beach Playa Fronton by boat to snorkel, explore caves, and enjoy a completely off the beaten path adventure. These beaches stand at the base of towering cliffs that will make you feel like you stepped into the land of dinosaurs. Fresh lunch cooked over a fire awaits you in this beautiful spot where pirates once made their home.
Available January 15th through March 20th
This whale watching expedition is truly an experience of a lifetime!
Each winter the majestic humpback whales make the long journey from the North Atlantic to the Samana Bay to give birth to their calves. On this whale watching expedition you will enjoy the spectacular views of the mountains that surround the Samana Bay, as you pass by the famous crystal clear blue waters of Cayo Levantado Island, (also known as Bacardi Island). Be sure to dress appropriately as you may get splashed! You will have a chance to ride on an open-air powerboat*( this is part of the exhilarating whale watching experience)! Who knows? You may just get a glimpse of the famous Orca from “Free Willy”! Back on land, you will finish the day with a tasty lunch and you can take a stroll on the warm white sands of Bacardi Beach. (Can’t you just feel the sand in your toes?!)
