We brought our family of five to Mount Azul and it was a perfect night. The kids all loved their dinners and everybody was very accommodating. This is a must-visit if you're in the Samana Peninsula.

It should be 30 minutes, the road is quite rough once you leave the highway, 4-wheel drive is suggested. Be sure and get there well before sunset to enjoy the views.
