Dominican Republic part IV, snorkeling

The last days we had windy weather which brought seagrass to the shore and the water became very turbid.


There were various water sport activities you could practice in the hotel, namely sailing, kite surfing, scuba diving, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, water skiing, and snorkeling. It was a good selection, and we made a decision going on a speed boat trip and snorkeling in much cleaner waters.

The boat trip was well organized and perfectly sized for a smaller group. We also took other passengers from different hotels with us. After a 40 minutes ride, we arrived at our spot and we released the anchor.

Time for some more action? I have to admit, that clear blue Caribbean sea was quite inviting!



Wrapping up

Many tourists choose this destination for its beautiful beaches and relaxed atmosphere. Actually this island has a lot more to offer. This paradise is much more than just white beaches with endless palm trees. Did you know that there are 8 mountain ranges on the island? There are no fewer than 128 protected areas in the Dominican Republic, with 31 national parks, nature lovers come not short here. I really wished we could spend some more time here and explore the north coast and the west part of the island as well, but we have to keep something for our next visit!
