Samana (Santa Barbara de Samana), is a city and municipality located in northeastern Dominican Republic, capital of Samana Province. It is situated on the northern coast of Samana Bay. Samana is a major tourism destination and is the center for whale-watching in the Caribbean. Samana lies in a small plain near the coast but today, most of the city is in the hills which enclose the plain.

Samana is the largest municipality of Samana Province and has a total area of 412 km² (nearly 50% of the total area), including the 3 municipal districts, part of the municipality. In 2012 Samana's population was 108,180.

Most of the territory of Samana is occupied by the short mountain range Sierra de Samana, with steep slopes and no high mountains. The highest mountain is the 605-meter Monte Mesa.

The town of Santa Barbara of Samana sits on Samana Peninsula that came first into written history on January 13, 1493 when Christopher Columbus made the last stop of his first cruise to the New World here. He landed on what is known today as the Rincon Beach.

The main economic activities of Samana municipality are agriculture, fishing and tourism. The boost to local economy took place in Jan-March with the migration of thousands of North Atlantic humpback whales, coming to Samana Bay annually to give birth. Samana is the center of tourism of the Dominican Republic during these months.
