The tour is amazing! If you go to Río San Juan your have to do this experience. They take you to beaches that you would know of if you don't do the tour.

Loved the colour of the water! It was pretty cool to swim in the lagoon/cave. There were some fish and some people were jumping off the rocks into the lagoon. Beautiful spot. We visited here with a tour and it is a must see spot.

A little pricey, but you do get a good feel for the country. Fairly long ride to get there don't forget sunglasses and your camera.

Local tutles and birds. Saw a baby sting ray. Reproduction zone for local fish and animals. Lots of old mangrove trees growing around the laguna. They were building a stage in the water for the local merengue Carnival.

Very beautiful. We started at one end and finished at the other and the entire place is a site to see.

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

We didn't use a tour company. We drove there from Puerto Plata and you can buy a ticket at the booth by the lagoon. We went on a wonderful boat trip and had a nice lobster lunch by the beach. The beach was crowded though, so... More
