What people are saying about La Romana
Awesome tour, great guides! Will definitely be back in the future and use Passion Paradise again!
The staff was amazing especially Jerry and Chantel. They were so sweet and caring and fun. They kept asking how we were doing, especially when my girlfriend was not feeling well. They made us feel very welcome and took care of us the entire way. Jerry kept pouring us drinks the entire trip!
We are a family of 4 with two small children (aged 4 and 8) and had a lovely time during the Catalina excursion. It was organized very professionally. The first snorkel time was away from the shore but our children did extremely well and there were lots of fish so they loved it. The island itself is paradise! Many thanks to everyone for making it such a memorable trip!
Skip crowded Saona island and take this catamaran from La Romana - first stop is the only reef worth snorkelling in the DR (just offshore from Isla Catalina) and then to a private beach on the uninhabited Isla Catalina itself. If you go to Saona you'll pay $40 round-trip just for the boat ride from Bayahibe. La Romana takes less time to get to than Bayahibe, and $80 on this tour gets you transport, snorkelling equipment (or pay more to scuba dive), plus a barbecue feast and unlimited beer, rum and soft drinks. Plus the staff are a blast.
They did really theirs best fulfilling "mission impossible". 60 km in DR is a fortune of time. Organization was perfect. The island is beautiful, the beach is splendid, but there are too many boats near it and it is almost not possible to swim. The trip with the catamaran was a nice party, also the way back with the speed boats and the short stop on the second beach. Same is almost everywhere in DR, so maybe 3 hours bus drive is a time to save ...
