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.
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.
The beach was really nice and the water beautiful. i did expect that the private island that we were snorkeling off of was going to be more of an island and not a sand bar with some huts. I would include that in the description so people know not to bring a lot with them. The boat ride to a from the sand bar was also very rough on the buttocks. I would tell people to bring extra towels to sit on during the ride. Other than those small things it was a great day out

Our guide spoke at least 5 languages, it was amazing! He was very informative about the island, it's history, the people, the sites - lots of interesting facts. Paradise Island was a bit on the small side due to high tide so it was a lot of people crowded together, but it was still fun and saw lots of beautiful fish. I wouldn't recommend this excursion who may not like speed boats. We went pretty fast on a smaller boat that held about 10 people per boat. It was fun! Alcohol was only included on Paradise Island, not the mainland. Bring a waterproof camera or they'll charge you for any photos they take.
The speaker was too loud to fully understand everything the commentator said, but it was informative. The bus was comfortable and the driver competent. The speed boat driver was polite and competent. The stay on the island was a tad long given the lack of things to do. The drive through the mangrove was awesome ! The cigar factory visit was informative but we were disappointed with the mama juana -- it tastes terrible, not like the pleasant drink we were offered on arrival. I would recommend this tour.
Beautiful water. Friendly guides. Good tour for inexperienced swimmers or snorkelers who want to see a reef.
It was terrible.Why would you call a sand bar an island.Also I don't think it was safe.As I was getting out of the boat the driver took off.
