Great excursion! Papo was an excellent guide and Luis was a great driver. The bus ride is long (2 hours) but Papo shared some information about the area along the way. The tiny island gets crowded but the snorkeling was great! The mangroves were really amazing to see! Our boat driver was great too. Lunch was very yummy and the kids swam while we waited for lunch. Great hospitality and a fun day for all.

Thank you for your kind words. We really appreciate your feedback. It is a long ride, but it is the best place for snorkeling on the north coast and beautiful nature.

Wow, Wow, and Wow. An absolute awesome excursion. Is definitely one of my best excursions I have ever experienced. Mu was an excellent host. From the front door pickup to hosting the entire trip. This company shows how excursions should be conducted. Thank you very much for this lifetime experience.

Great trip! We went to the Paradise island (Cayo arena) - easy hotel transfers, helpful guide speaking languages (English and german besides Spanish), free drinks (rum included!) and fruit on the island, plus you get to jet through the mangroves, and a nice meal on the way back (also included in the price - in the form of buffet - you won't leave hungry that's for sure!) - a couple of extra stops included a visit to souvenir shops with cigars and alcohol amongst many others. No hassle though you don't feel pressured to buy anything or tip extensively so that's a big plus too. 5 stars 100% would recommend good value for money.

Today was an amazing day. Kind of last minute we decided to upgrade from a 2 hour snorkeling trip to a dull day Paradise Island trip with a ride through mangroves. Eric Tours International provided an amazing day. Richard was an amazing host/guide. He was very knowledgeable about many topics in conversation. He was amazingly patient and a great teacher as we snorkeled. We had plenty of beverages and lunch and breakfast croissants were delicious. Our day was leisurely, yet right on schedule. The snorkeling at Paradise Island was amazing. So many fish and so many beautiful colors under water.

We also did the Monkey Jungle with the zipline through Eric Tours International. I highly recommend this tour group if you end up in Sosua, Dominican Republic.

The place can get pretty crowded, we were told to go on a Monday, but thwere was still around 250 people! Snorkeling is nice around the reef. Long, very long bus ride (2.5 hours) from the Cabarete region.

Hello Pierre, thanks for taking the time to give us a review. Now during the summer the island can be very quiet;however some days can still get pretty crowded. If you come back one day, we also offer a private tour to Paradise Island and we leave very early so we arrive before all the regular tours arrives.

This was booked through Sunwing. I wish the had told us that it was a 3 hour bus ride both directions. The island is cool to see but PACKED. Hard to snorkel without getting flippers in the head.

Lunch was fantastic!

Snorkeling was better there than the scuba diving we did. The island .. hut.. photos... video... worth the price...
