What You Can Expect

Cayo Paraiso Deserted Island Tour from Puerto Plata

Snorkel off the shores of a deserted island!

Your friendly driver and professional guide will collect you from your hotel in a comfortable coach bus for this Cayo Paraiso Deserted Island Tour from Puerto Plata. You’ll drive through topical countryside, epic mountain ranges and lush landscapes as you make your way past Pico Isabel de Torres—Puerto Plata’s highest peak. Your coach will travel past the quiet fishing village of Punta Rusia, where tropical forests meet dry deserts. 

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. 

You’ll return to shore after your tour and depart for your Puerto Plata hotel in the comfort of your coach bus. The tour ends when you arrive around 4:30 p.m.

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

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!!
