Villas Eva Luna
Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic

Unlike the D.R.’s better-known tourist enclave Punta Cana, the Samaná Peninsula is still wild and jungly. Villas Eva Luna epitomizes the area’s charms, with five casitas surrounding a palm-shaded pool. Linger over an alfresco breakfast, then wander down to Playa Las Ballenas, where the snorkeling’s best.

Cost: $100

Don’t Miss: The Haitian Caraïbes Gallery (159 Avda. Duarte, Las Terrenas; 809/240-6250), which stocks jewelry made from locally sourced amber.
