La Hacienda is a working horse farm with dogs, cats and chickens. The setting is rustic but comfortable, and extremely peaceful. But there's still free WiFi for those who need a connection to the outside. Price is per person in the 3 bed dorm.
On the trail to the remote beaches, only a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach. The water we use is collected rainwater and there is a compost. We have horses that can be hired for trail-riding.
Guests have access to the kitchen/terrace, the public room with books, internet and the garden.
I will be around and help you when you need me.
If you are planning to cook buy groceries before arriving. It can be difficult to get money here make that you have enough cash before arriving in Las Galeras.
The area is extraordinary peaceful -- go ahead and have bit of a party, but be respectful of the place and of the animals. Only people who check in on arrival are permitted to stay overnight.
I am originally from Belgium, live an work for many years now in the Dominican Republic. My house "La Hacienda hostel" is located in the countryside three and half miles from Las Galeras. Just on the edge of Cabo Samana National Park. I love animals and have 10 horses which I rent to tourists for making beautiful excursions in nature.
