Cosón Bay Hotel & Residences is one of the best-located resorts for experiencing everything Samaná and the Dominican Republic have to offer. Las Terrenas is located on an outstretched powdery-white sand coast, dwelled by small mangroves and rocky areas. The ubiquity of plentiful white sand and turquoise blue water beaches has transformed this quaint fishing village into a small tourist town. In addition to the venerable town of Las Terrenas, the settlement spans an area three kilometers in length, along the coastline extending all the way towards Playa Bonita. The region possesses modern-day infrastructure that rival other Caribbean destinations, with a diversified tourism offering and bustling nightlife. Aside from large all-inclusive hotels, it is surrounded by a vast amount of boutique hotels, hostels and luxurious second homes. The town boasts a wide-ranging gastronomic offering due to the presence of approximately 40 picturesque restaurants serving myriad international specialties. French, Basque, Japanese and Italian cuisine, among others, are just a sample of the cuisine found in the area. Las Terrenas is renowned for its long-winded stretches of beaches and sought after by visitors for its tranquility and paradisiacal views typical of Playa Bonita, Cosón Bay and Bobilanza.
