we have different rays in the shallows near the beaches, but very hard to spot one from the hotelbeaches at the Bavaro Hotelstrip with one resort aside an other, you are restricted to swim and snorkel from the becah just in the roped in swimming areas, as right in front of them quiet hefty boattraffick is running all day long.

to see Rays and such you need to snorkel the shallows off the Boatroutes like for example in the Bavaro Beach Bay in the very wide shallow around the reef area, there yo find stingrays and lil Mantas hanging out.

the too busy areas are just not their typical hometurf.

We were lucky enough to see three large rays on a couple of occasions when we were at Sanctuary Cap Cana a few months ago.
