Highlights
    What to Expect
    Be ready for early morning pickup, around 6:30 a.m., at your Puerto Plata hotel. Board an air-conditioned coach with your guide and group, then set out for Puerto Rusia, a quaint fishing village on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic.

    Once in Puerto Rusia, board a speedboat and zoom out of the mangrove forest to Paradise Island, an idyllic dot of sand and jungle in an azure sea. Go ashore to sunbathe, explore, and comb the beach for shells. Take a guided snorkeling tour using the provided mask, fins, and snorkel, during which you will see a variety of tropical fish and coral.

    When you get hungry, stop for a buffet lunch and open bar. 

    At the end of the day, return to your Puerto Plata hotel for drop-off the way you came.
