Excursion to Punta Rusia
Don't miss the most idyllic spot on the north-coast. Speedboats whisk you over to the fantastic desert island Cayo Paraiso, close to the coast of Punta Rusia. There you will be impressed by the white sand, turquoise clear waters, a perfect coral reef and a delightful sea breeze. Take plenty of sun protection and enjoy this sun lover's day out in the sea. Discover the most beautiful reef in the Caribbean on a snorkeling-tour with our guide to see amazing coral and colourful fishes. By speed boat go through the lush green mangroves of the National Park and learn about the wonders of nature.
