Know More about this tour

This sandbar that is frequently visited by hundreds of tourists is a jewel of nature, a true paradise in the Caribbean. It is difficult to know the size because it contracts and expands depending on the seasons of ocean currents, which contradicts its location, which is one of the driest areas of the
Dominican Republic.

Your excursion to Cayo Arena offers a wonderful tour departing from Puerto Plata, in comfortable air-conditioned buses and experienced drivers, accompanied by professional guides. Head to the north of the Dominican Republic and get ready for a journey full of splendid landscapes and green mountains to Punta Rusia, a picturesque fishing village on the coast of Puerto Plata. Once you reach Punta Rusia, in La Isabela Bay, you will board a boat to take you to Cayo Arena.

Board a modern speed boat, and admire the flora and fauna of the waterway and visit the national park, navigating through the mangroves, with a variety of beautiful natural colors. If you are lucky, you'll see the famous mammal, the manatee. This animal is popularly known as a sea cow!

After 45-minutes enjoying this unforgettable ride we arrived at Cayo Arena, here we have free time to snorkel and observe many species of fish of all colors, take pictures, take a refreshing swim in crystal clear water, chatting with fishermen who come to Island or relax in fine sand.

  • our trip was a disaster our pick up time was 745am waited till 830am no one showed up to pick us up so the front desk at our hotel blue bay villas dorados called the company so the company of the tour sent a taxi to pick us up we got picked up at 845am then the taxi drove like a maniac to catch up to the tour bus finally caught the tour bus witch was very embarrassing getting on the bus late making the bus wait for us then got the on tour bus and the guides spoke mostly only german and Spanish hardly spoke English hardly understood anything about the tour then we arrived at our destination and your add on viator says we would board a beautiful catamaran that's why we booked this one because it said catamaran but we boarded a speedboat instead witch was very disappointing then after we left the island we went through the mangroves and had no idea what was being said again about them because they spoke german and Spanish again and then the drive back same thing german and Spanish
    This makes us think we don't want to book an excursion through viator in the future for other destinations we will be visiting in the future very disappointing trip especially when this happened on this trip to Dominican witch we got married at our resort and this was our wedding and honeymoon vacation

  • HIGHLY recommend this trip for you if you love the sun, the sand, and snorkeling. So much fun and so worth it.
