First, I must point out that Punta Cana is not a snorkelling paradise. So I am assuming you are commited to the destination and now looking for things to do while there. We booked the half-day Reef Explorer excursion. A short bus ride and even...More

I don't think there was paddle boats, but there was the use of kayaks and either a foot massage or back massage
