  • Excursion made and proposed by our tour operator at the beginning of Sosua. 2 h bus that could seem long if it had not had the chance to guide Amaury which did us enjoy his culture of his country, generously of ours too, its humor, its indications along the way on Dominican life in the villages... This we must add a perfect organization, attention to all passengers on the catamaran, to arrive in this island where we could snorkel and admire the colourful fish. It was impressive beauty. The visit in the mangroves in speedboat, arrival at the restaurant on an idyllic beach, lobster grilled at will, what more? For us this will remain our most beautiful excursion. Thank you Amaury!

  • Highly recommended for snorkelling and rum. The fish eat from your hand and come in all colors and sizes ... Rum cola was also very tasty and The mangroves was really cool with the speed boat .... The cigar factory was bit redundant but be fine for the sale of souvenirs

  • The water was crystal clear, but it was all too many people there at the same time, It meant that there was not a single fish to see. It was lining up to get in the country, full of people in the water, and fully on the land. The trip was commissioned via TUI, and the price was high. Waiting, waiting and waiting. The Guide on the trip was good. He was knowledgeable and did a great job.
