Hva folk sier
Cabo Cabron es un cabron!

Cabron på spansk er en spottende ord og denne turen er en karbon. Jeg har vært på Samana til en rekke ganger. I oktober gikk jeg til Playa Rincon for å finne den trailhead til Cabo Cabron. På 1 / 1 / 2017 jeg nettopp returnert med min massasje terapeut fra Samana. Fordi det var 1. nyttårsdag vi hadde problemer med å få en tidlig gua gua til Playa Rincon. Vi ankom klokken 12. Føreren fortalte oss, vi måtte bli tilbake av 5 eller det blir det ikke noe offentlig transport. Vi bestemte oss for å gå 2 timer i og dem tilbake selv om vi ikke hadde tatt turen. Det er en innledende svært bratt helling. Vi gikk på to timer og så gjorde en beslutning om å fortsette. Vi gikk for rundt 40 minutter og tenkte at vi var omtrent 40 minutter kort for manuell etterbehandling. Løypa er lett å følge, men var svært gjørmete på grunn av tunge siste regnet - - - dette gjorde turen mye vanskeligere. Vi dro tilbake til Playa Rincon og måtte kjøre på baksiden av en plukke opp mot veien fra Las As Galeras til Samana. Vi vil deretter hitchhiked i mørket (sannsynligvis ikke en god idé) tilbake til Samana. Vi var begge skuffet over at vi ikke hadde tatt turen. Vi kommer tilbake i mars for å ta ned Cabo Cabron. Dette er ikke en enkel fottur. Jeg er usedvanlig fysiske tilstand og jeg fant det utfordrende. forresten Playa Rincon er rangert som ett av de 10 beste strendene i verden. Jeg var der en dag i oktober på 9 : 00 om morgenen, og der er ingen bortsett fra meg på 3 km. strand. Den Samana halvøya er den perlen i den dominikanske republikk. Steve Campbell

As of December of 2017, the road to the trailhead is easily accessible in any vehicle. It is paved until the last two kilometers, which are gravel, and then switches to packed sand that leads to a parking lot.

The first 3/4 of a mile or so of the trail has a decent amount of elevation gain and loss and then levels out for a couple of miles. It varies from open road to narrow path and is easily recognizable. We passed several friendly locals with donkeys carrying goods.

We only had a few hours to check it out and had to turn around at the 3 mile point but what we did see was absolutely stunning. The variety of views, plants and topography made us wish we had time to finish the trail.

Standard advice applies: make sure you have enough water, snacks and daylight. Make sure someone knows you are out on the trail. Wear good shoes and check the weather before going.

It had rained the evening prior and we didn’t head out until later in the afternoon. There were still some muddy spots but not anything unreasonable. I do not recommend hiking this trail if it is raining or if there has been a recent heavy rain without sufficient time to dry out.

Fun fact: Google Maps will work on an iPhone in airplane mode with GPS enabled. This is handy way to track your progress along the trail.

Keep in mind the trail runs along the east side of the peninsula and in the shadow of the mountain so allow plenty of time for the return trip as it will get dark earlier than expected. Take the time to relax in the refreshing crystal clear waters of Cano Frio after your hike and enjoy your adventure!

I returned to Cabo Cabron on 3/12/2017 with Alan Gray of Boston, who had been living in Samana for three months. We hired a gua gua driver to take us to Playa Rincon. We arrived and began our hike at 8:30 in the morning. The initial part of the hike is extremely difficult. It took us 3 1/2 hours to reach the end of the trail at a beautiful spot at the ocean with very sharp volcanic rock. We ate lunch and started back. We lost the trail on the way back, which is not a joking matter in this remote area. We eventually followed the remains of coconut harvesting and found a trail which led us to the main trail. The return trip took us 4 1/2 hours. This is an extremely remote area, however with spectacular natural beauty. The trail begins and ends at Playa Rincon, rated by some sites as one of the top 10 beaches in the world. The Samana Peninsula is the gem of the Dominican Republic. I love it so much that I have rented an apartment in Santa Barbara de Samana for the next 15 months. I go back and forth from there to my home in Tucson, Arizona. If you consider attempting this hike, be in shape!!!

Cabron in Spanish is a profane word and this hike is a carbon. I have been to Samana a number of times. In October I went to Playa Rincon to find the trailhead to Cabo Cabron. On 1/1/2017 I retuned with my massage therapist from Samana. Because it was New Year's Day we had trouble getting an early gua gua to Playa Rincon. We arrived at noon. The driver told us we had to be back by 5 or there would be no public transportation. We decided to hike 2 hours in and them return even if we had not completed the hike. There is an initial very steep incline. We hiked for two hours and then made a decision to continue. We hiked for about another 40 minutes and figured that we were about 40 minutes short of finishing. The trail is easy to follow, but was very muddy because off heavy recent rains---this made the hike much more difficult. We returned to Playa Rincon and had to ride in the back of a pick up to the road from Las Galeras to Samana. We then hitchhiked in the dark(probably not a great idea) back to Samana. We were both disappointed that we had not completed the hike. We will return in March to take down Cabo Cabron. This is not an easy hike. I am in exceptional physical condition and I found it challenging. By the way Playa Rincon is rated one of the top 10 beaches in the world. I was there one day in October at 9:00 in the morning and there was no one except me on the 3 km. beach. The Samana Peninsula is the gem of the Dominican Republic. Steve Campbell

Le village de las Galeras est dans une baie entourée des caps Cabron et Samana. Le cap Cabron est important par sa taille et assez nature sauvage; à découvrir par des sentiers mais en général en bateau, en particulier pour les amateurs de pêche...

Fuimos a bucear a cabo Cabrón. La mar estaba muy agitada pero el marinero Chi, con gran experiencia , sorteaba las olas. Desde las galeras estubimos navegando unos 35 minutos. Pudimos disfrutar de las vistas de la Peninsula, y de la compañia de una familia de unos 20 ejemplares de delfines. La inmersión fue excelente, visibilidad muy buena y gran variedad y calidad de corales. Para repetir

I hiked the Cabo Cabron yesterday. And I survived. What you must know before you go is that this is a national park, and their are a few trails and trailhead crossings, and that it is a very large park with few other people hiking and no maps. But there are wonderful views which make it a worthwhile excursion for an experienced and prepared hiker.

Our group had a guide who told us that it would be 1.5 hours in and 1.5 hours back after reaching the beach for a wonderful swim. The group of 14 ranging in ages from 5 to 73 plus two large dogs, took back packs of water, lunch, snack, towels and cameras. Our group have various levels of experience as did the 2 guides who took us in. It was a 3 hour hike in and 4 hour hike out (only because we kept the group together and made many rest stops on the way back because we had all run out of water). Had we been prepared, we would have had sufficient water, food, extra snacks, etc.

The trails are difficult because there are many rocks that are dislodged on steep inclines, and fern gardens that cover paths so that you cannot see where your foot is placed. But if you are an experienced hiker, you will see many beautiful vistas, the beach of Rincon, the serveral layers of forest, some iguana (which are being reintroduced into this area in order to save the endangered species) and the flora is wonderful.

Let me warn you that there is no beach at the end of the road but there is a volanic area in front of the water where you will want to jump in and cool off. Its a treat and you can snorkel there, but would be better advertised as an inlet surrounded by volcanic rock.

Also be aware that you will not be able to get to a trail head to get into the park without a 4-wheel drive and some very serious suspension.

I would do the hike again with more water and better preparations. I would also veer towards the Playa Rincon for more spectacular beach front.

Cabo Cabron is one of the most remote and fascinating places I have ever been. To reach it, you must first get to Playa Rincon either by boat from Las Galeras or by car or ATV along a rough road through the town of Los Tocones. Start at the mouth of the bay and cross a rickety bridge across the cold river. Then turn right and follow a crude path and up a substantial hill.

Being an avid hiker, I took the footpath and hiked for approximately a half hour into the interior. I managed to get lost once and stumbled onto the land of a local farmer. Although surprised to see me, I explained in broken Spanish that I was only trying to hike to the end of the peninsula. He took me past his farm and back on the main path. After another hour, I figured that I had hiked about 2/3 of the way to the end of the peninsula. Since I was alone and had not taken a sufficient amount of water, I turned back. However, next time I am in the area, I will try again.

As far as I know, there are no facilities on Cabo Cabron. However, in time, I foresee development coming to this area big time because of the spectacular views from on high and the gorgeous beaches. Playa Rincon, itself, is rated by Conde Nast magazine as being one of the world's best beaches and it is easy to see why with it's long coast line, azure blue waters, thousands of palm trees and surrounding mountains.
