The New Dominican Order
enRoute, December 2012
A week in the tropical paradise that is the Samaná Peninsula, in the Dominican Republic, making photos and traveling with charismatic and inquisitive writer Adam Leith Gollner, in the middle of January. Need I say more?
"I’m on Samaná, a rugged peninsula in northeastern Dominican Republic, riding through the jungle looking for a (supposedly) nearby waterfall. Before coming here, I’d heard Samaná was a secret subtropical paradise, a Hispaniolan hideaway for eco-explorers, an antidote to the usual beach-and-bachata fluff. But I didn’t realize this 50-kilometre-long peninsula is an outsize orchidaceous rain forest with almost preternaturally gorgeous landscapes. No one told me it would be this raw."
