    It can not be a snorkeling here, few times I saw both live coral and many species, coupled the attention and quality of service. Never saw a free lobster tour...!

    Being motorized we chose the local option. 100 pesos of parking and 1000 pesos max by people to negotiate. We went in early afternoon, so it wasn't too crowded, out of the Sun. Great snorkling, you must just leave the sandbank, no need to be a great swimmer, is 20 meters from the edge and we have feet almost up to the gate. If you don't come with your hardware you will receive only a mask but not tuba... However for this price no cooler rum or lobster, but no matter what it takes on the beach of punta rucia there. A simple meal with drink between 300 and 400 pesos.

    We bought our tickets via TripAdvisor out of Puerto Plata. Punctual and great atmosphere arrived on the scene. It is ouawoou I was afraid what be the one on the other but in the end not at all. The coral reef offers a beautiful sight. We feasted.
