We spent a fun day diving here with Happy Dive Centre. And the zipline was scary but fun! (make sure you use one or both hands to cover the parts that count, when you hit the water)

Great boat ride through the lagoon. I was sad that they waves were too high and we were unable to go see the caves or snorkel.

We had so much fun during the trip, a beautiful and very turquoise sea and beautiful lagoon, it’s a very safe trip and you get to go to open sea, the boat’s captain keeps you informated about the lagoon and the sea.

Came here for a day excursion a few days ago. It was a great trip, we took the boat over from the Bahia Principe. The lagoon itself is a protected area and you can tell nature has come back. Cool birds and fish are everywhere!...More

This was a nice tour, tour guide Juan was funny and crazy, they will try to sell you souvenirs at the beach, don't pay initial price you can always negotiate, food was good, truck seats not that comfortable

No, not at all. You can simply look at the lagoon; you do not need to go in. There are a lot Of rocks so you can always stand on a rock with your feet in the water or near the waters edge if you want to get a picture... More
