What You Can Expect
Upon arrival in Punta Rusia, you’ll take off in a speedboat across the Carbbean Sea to Cayo Paraiso. Your 25-minute ride will transport you to one of the area’s most unspoiled beaches, complete with white sandy beaches and an untouched coral reef.
Spend 2.5 hours on the island, where you can snorkel using complementary gear and search for starfish, spotted eels and stingrays. You’ll have time to enjoy unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks on the island and during a savory restaurant lunch before taking off for a 30-minute boat tour of Monte Cristi National Park. This unique protected park filled with sub-tropical dry forest offers a stark contrast to the island’s most typical tropical landscapes. Impressive birdlife gathers here, including flamingos and brown pelicans.
Your guide will point out noteworthy landmarks throughout your tour, including El Morro, a 777-foot (237-meter) limestone mesa and Los Cayos Siete Hermanos (The Seven Brothers Cays). These small offshore islands are home to a handful of reptile species, as well as other natural rarities.
Beautiful!!!! But wear sunblock! Got the most sunburned out this trip. Best snorkeling experience and speed boat experience.
We were shown a great time by our tour guides. The sandbar and snorkeling is a great experience, especially for not experienced snorkelers. You get all of your equipment on the sandbar/island, and you have a guide with you at all times. If you want, I'd suggest buying an underwater camera there as the guide will take pictures of you while you're beyond the reef. Also, Alberto was a great guide giving fun facts and solid info as we went along. A great trip all around
Had a wonderful time, boat ride is exciting, beach was busy, snokeling was amazing. Also enjoyed the bus ride thru the countyside it was long about an hour from puerto plata.
Loved this trip. It was a long ride from Sousa but worth it. Paridise island was one of my favorite parts of our trip.
ONE OF THE GUIDES WAS GREAT, HE TOOK MY FRIEND AND I DOWN ALONG THE REEF AND AWAY FROM THE GROUP SO WE COULD SEE MOST OF THE AREA AS WE SNORKELED.IT WAS BEAUTIFUL.I FELT HE WENT OVER AND BEYOND SHOWING US THE AREA SO WE HAD A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE.
Very nice the best vacation ever
Was AMAZING! The boat tour of the mangrove trees was very cool, the drive was fun and the snorkeling breathtaking. Everyone is super friendly and makes sure you have Cuba Libre in hand anytime you are not fully submerged ;) The lunch was disappointing but I was also not feeling the best that day, so maybe combo. Overall I highly recommend this tour!!
Tour was amazing! Our guide/boatdriver (Carlos I believe) was awesome.
a life time experience !
Loved the boat ride through the mangrove forest
