About this Puerto Plata tour
Visit the Paradise Island of Cayo Arena, a sand bank island located northwest of the Dominican Republic, off the coast of Puerto Plata. Imagine sunbathing on a small island in the middle of the ocean surrounded by white sands and clear waters where you can see the bottom with incredible sharpness, their colors ranging from Turquoise to Acqua. Your excursion to Cayo Arena offers a wonderful tour departing from Puerto Plata, in air-conditioned transports with experienced drivers, accompanied by professional guides; take the road north of the Dominican Republic and the trip is full of beautiful landscapes and green mountains to Punta Rusia, a picturesque fishing village on the coast of Puerto Plata.
From there you'll board a beautiful catamaran from where you will 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 we are lucky we will see near the famous Manatee popularly known as sea cows.
Enjoy time at Cayo Arena where you have free time to snorkel and observe many species of fish of all colors, take photos, take a refreshing swim in crystal clear water swimming, chatting with fishermen who come to the island or relax in fine sand.
