Las Galeras is a district on the east coast of the Saman a Peninsula, in the Dominican Republic. Las Galeras, meaning The Galleys, is named after two galleys that stayed here during the 16th century. Tourists love Las Galeras for their beautiful palm beaches, warm climate, and the fact that it is a small spot at the end of the road away from mass-tourism. But there is more to do besides relaxing on the beach with a drink in hand.
