We moved from Puerto Bahia Marina into the Samana Anchoarge so it was easier to go to Carnaval and to wait out some nasty weather. 

For a video about the anchorage and Carnaval: Click here !!

From this anchorage it was easier for us to explore the inland part of the Samana Peninsula. We rented 4-wheelers and drove to El Valle, on the Northern Coast of the Samana Peninsula. 

Here is Tyler’s video about the day we rented 4-wheelers: Click here!!

Getting ready to go
Fueling up

Here are a few pictures from the beach on the Northern Coast.

Fish Market sign along the way
El Valle beach is lined with colorful fishing boats

El Valle was a vast dark brown sand beach and without any signs of tourist!! Just a couple empty beach bars lined the beach. 

It was a great day of exploring!!
