Full description
This excursion to Cayo Arena offers a wonderful tour departing from Puerto Plata, in comfortable air—conditioned buses with experienced drivers, accompanied by professional guides. This trip is full of beautiful landscapes and green mountains all the way to Punta Rusia, a picturesque fishing village on the coast of Puerto Plata. The land tour ends at Playa Punta Rusia. From there you board a beautiful catamaran, so that you can appreciate the flora and fauna of the water route and visit the national park, navigating through the mangroves, with a variety of beautiful natural colors. If you are lucky you will see the famous manatee, also known as the sea cow. After 45 minutes, you arrive at Cayo Arena. Here you will have free time to snorkel, observe many species of fish of all colors, take photos, and enjoy a refreshing swim in crystal clear water.

Entertaining but difficult for sustainable development!

Transport to get there is long and yes the site is wonderful. The high ground and a coral bank in restoration. It was great but we planted small counters on the shoals and several groups arrive at the same time. They serve drinks and eat seafood 2 feet in the sea next to the coral reef. Will that preserve him? We ate small langoustines hoping that it was not an intensive fishing for us tourists. How to better preserve this place?

Arrived late It's not a real catamaran We ate at 2 p.m. and after instead of enjoying the beach (I remember we came for that) we take the bus to visit the tobacco manufacturers (personally it doesn't I'm not interested at all) In short, we lost a lot of time for nothing The Island is beautiful as in the photos and the food is top The rest is not correct especially the history of the catamaran which is not when we paid more: it's not honest
