$2 billion resort and residential project planned for Samana Peninsula

This newly announced project means more good news for the Samana Peninsula.  Though the project won’t be completed for 20 years, the scope of this project indicates to me that  Samana has a very bright future.  The Samana Peninsula, where Las Terrenas, Samana and Las Galeras are located, has been getting attention from travelers, retirees and investors for many years.  Real Estate appreciation in the area has been as high as 35% per year, averaging about 20% over the last five or six years.
