What people are saying about La Romana

Great snorkeling day trip. The pickup may seem a bit chaotic, but it worked perfectly and with the Caribbean serenity you always get to your destination. The first snorkel stop was wonderful, lots of fish and coral. A little tip: swim deeper. There you are alone and see more fish. The second stop at the beautiful sandy beach was great including lunch. Our recommendation: bring cash for the lobster or fresh fish. Worth it!

A really top-notch team, from the boss to the guides, including the crew and the photographer... Trilingual starting in English Spanish and French. A small group excursion, far from crowded boats like canned sardines. Two very nice snorkeling stops, a meal on a beautiful beach and a return trip along the coast to the mouth of the Savona river. A day of pure happiness!!!

Everything was perfect for the transfer. The activity itself was also perfect, we saw many fish, Catalina Island was heavenly, between turquoise water and white sand, everything was magnificent, we were amazed! Small positive note for Pedro our guide who was very welcoming and very attentive to us. This is one of the top activities to do during vacations in Punta Cana!

Coach ride was long but was worth it. Great people looking after you on the boat and working very hard. Snorkelling was amazing and the island even more stunning. Fully recommend this to anyone. Just note it is a full day!

Nice day on the island, too bad there were a lot of waves... The buffet was full, the bar too, a good day.
