The trip was indescribably beautiful! Our guide Carlos spoke German and we were able to learn so much about the culture and life of the locals! The day was incredibly well organized. The plantation tour was super interesting and we were allowed to taste coffee, cocoa and cocoa tea. The walk up to Montana Retonda was extremely fun, shaky affair. The view is amazing! And our personal highlight was lunch far away from tourism by the sea! If you want to see something of the country you have to book it!

Pick up super 5* Pleasant little catamaran with fresh fruits and nachos, drinks on board, snorkeling spot great with lots of fish and at the end a no party spot to have fun. There were 4 of them. You feel as if you had booked a private catamaran and would like to book this trip again tomorrow. Crew on board also 5*, return to the hotel also 5* super funny driver with a good mood, communication with the organizer also 5* can only be recommended.

The tour was a lot of fun, snorkeling was very nice! There were some fish to see. The food was delicious, simple, but good... The transfer in the morning was on time, but we had to wait over an hour for some guests on the return trip ..The unexpected transfer actions were also a bit strange...?!?!That is a strange action by our standards.. It is nevertheless a beautiful and worthwhile excursion and we can only recommend it..

Willie from the cocoa village tour was very entertaining.. as well as all the tour guides. Wish I had more time here. Really wonderful park . Very attentive and helpful

Santo Domingo is a really nice place to go and our guide, Fransisco was very informative too. Thank you!
