the water was blue and clear, food was good, guide was great. you really need water shoes because of the abundance of coral in the water. the trip to the sandbar to see the starfish was great and we wished we had more time there.

bus ride from Parradisus hotel through local towns to boat pickup site was nice,most amazing boat ride i have taken anywhere,crystal clear waters they let you stop and swim,explored remote beaches along coast that are uninhabited on the way to Saona island where you spend a few hours before boat ride back to bus pickup.
