Directions from Las Americas Airport, Santo Domingo to Casa Dorado
The trip takes 3 hours and you need about 400 pesos for the three tolls.
Follow the exit route from the Las Americas Airport north to the main highway. Head west toward Santo Domingo. There is an elevated ramp on the left hand side that takes you to the westbound side of the highway. Soon after you will pass through a toll. You don't pay the toll this direction(only as you leave the capital). Immediately after passing through the toll there is a right-hand exit for the local access road running parallel to the highway. Be aware, there is a sign for the Samana Highway, but it is small. About 1 km on the access road merge north-bound on to the Samana highway. It is clearly marked.
There are 3 tolls on the Samana Highway totaling about 400 pesos, so you need to have Dominican money with you. Follow the new highway all the way to until it dead ends into Route 5(near Nagua). Turn right on to Route 5 and head east toward the town of Samana. You will pass the El Catey Airport soon after turning on to Route 5.
Pass through Sanchez and continue to the town Samana. There will be signs for a left turn to Las Terrenas/El Portillo, do not take it, continue straight.
As you drive through Samana, follow the main traffic route down to the water. The road merges left along the waterfront. You will see new 'gingerbread shoppies' on the left. At the end of the waterfront, turn left and continue up the hill. It is a long, steep hill. At the top of the hill there will be a juncture, turn right. Continue along this road for 18 miles. The road is newly paved and in excellent condition.
As you enter Las Galeras, the public school is on the right, then a baseball/soccer field on the left. 100 meters further there is a corner with a Pentecostal Chruc h(Iglesia de la Profecia) and a bright yellow ferrteria(hardware store). Turn left here. Continue to the third left hand turn. Turn left and Casa Dorado is the first house on the right. If you get to this area and get confused ask for Casa Dorado or 'la casa de Roberto."
