Whether this is your first trip to the beautiful north coast of the Dominican Republic or you are a return visitor, you can trust Top3Tours to deliver only the best excursions at the best possible price. Top3Tours will not sell tours or excursions that do not carry their own insurance, and all operators we have partnered with must meet our high standards for safety.
We here at Top3Tours do not recommend bringing younger children with special needs on this tour. There are no facilities on the “island” and the only activities included on the “island” are snorkelling, swimming and suntanning.
The tour-operator will take you by bus through the mountains of the Puerto Plata province, following the road towards Imbert. Just before the town Imbert we will make a right turn towards the small city of La Isabela. You will pass through the western part of the province, driving from village to village in the Dominican country side until your coach arrives at the beach in the fishing village of Punta Rucia.
From Punta Rucia you will be taken by speedboat to Paradise Island (Cayo Arena). This sandy Island is 2 miles away from the shore. During your visit you will have a chance to do a guided snorkeling tour of 30 minutes around the coral reefs and have free time to snorkel on your own, soak up the sun and enjoy the views of the north coast. You will be on the island for two and a half hours. A wooden shack provides shade and refreshments. They offer rum, coca-cola, sprite, water and tropical fruits.
On the way back to the shore, you will pass through the mangroves of a nature park called ‘Parque Nacional de Monte Cristi’. On shore you will experience a traditional Dominican buffet-lunch. After that you arel taken you back to your hotel.
