This excursion was absolutely fabulous. You were escorted out to a sand bar in the ocean, where you can snorkel, and swim. Some people saw marlin while snorkelling. Very cool!

We booked the Paradise Island trip through Nexus rep at Riu. The drive to the boat launch trip is about 1hr 20-30 mins cause it goes through dozens of tiny towns and the bus never gets over about 30 kmh. The starting point for this tour company is Punta Rusia and it is gorgeous and spotless. I read reviews about... More

I want to start by saying this is a beautiful island and I'm glad I went on this trip. But....I do think it could be improved by being cut in half, by making this a half day trip I don't think you'd miss out at all. Lunch was included for us and the food was pretty standard compared to other... More

This was a great experience! We were picked up on a bus at about 730 am. The bus made several stops to pick up other people that would be joining this excursion. It was a bit of a long ride , so keep in mind this is a day trip. The bus ride itself to the boat is a scenic... More

We booked the VIP tour and started our day with breakfast on the catamaran. The crew and staff were wonderful and made the trip pleasant. Jumping into the ocean and sipping champagne was a treat. The Lobster lunch was delicious and filling. Great day!

We have visited the Paradise Island & The Mangroves during our trip to Dominican Republic at the beginning of 2015. I usually divide my reviews into PROS and CONS, but in case of Paradise Island it’s really hard to find any CONS.

Then onto a lovely cove where we were handed hollowed out coconuts full of rum, and given lunch the food was quite... More
