8 days Highlights of the North Tour

Experience all important sights of the North of the Dominican Republic in this short trip. Try canyoning and waterfall climbing at the famous 27 waterfalls of Damajagua. Stroll the streets of Puerto Plata and Santiago de los Caballeros and immerse yourself in the Caribbean way of life.

Experienced tour guides are available to answer any questions and give you a profound insight into the country and its people. A tropical river boat tour takes you along the river Rio Sabaneta de Yasica all the way to La Boca, where the river flows into an unspoiled stretch of sea. You will take a trip to the Gri Gri Lagoon, known for its rich bird life and crystal clear waters. Finally, we take the boat through the mangrove forests to the secluded beach of Playa Caleton.

The absolute highlight of this trip is the excursion to the beautiful coral reef of Paradise Island, which is one of the best snorkeling destinations in the Caribbean.
