Catalina and Cumayasa

Duration: Full Day

catalina and cumayasa

This is a wonderful excursion that masterfully combines two wonderful and exciting adventures: bird watching at Cumayasa River and the most fantastic opportunity for snorkelling at the little island of Catalina.

For the first part of this splendid tour you will be heading towards the region of Cumayasa named after its impetuous river. On this riverside location you’ll be engaging in the peaceful and relaxing activity of observing nature’s most beautiful aviary species. Watch the peculiarity of these tropical birds as a knowledgeable guide lectures you about the different groups and families of the specimens found here…a true paradise for bird lovers, as well as for those admirers of nature’s richness and diversity.

In this trip along the Cumayasa River you will find yourself among some wonderful riverbanks, where you will have the privilege of observing at leisure the various species of birds in the trees. And if you’re lucky enough you might even get to spot other types of wildlife amongst the beautifully fringed riverbanks!

After this encounter with Dominican’s most thriving fauna in the form of these splendid flying creatures you will be later heading towards a completely different landscape…Your next stop will be Catalina Island, the most idyllic place for admiring the blooming undersea life and unwinding in a practically desert island.

Located just off the Dominican Republic’s southern coast lies the beautiful island of Catalina; a true Eden of sun and crystalline waters teeming with a rich variety of tropical fish. This isolated island fringed with deserted beaches and rugged cliffs is home to an abundance of wildlife and the most beautiful of wild vegetation.

Widely renowned for its exceptionally clear waters and wide variety of colourful marine life, Catalina will offer you the most incredible opportunity for fantastic snorkelling! 

Here you can also spot an abundance of wildlife in the form of buffalo, mules or wild deer running on the hillsides and you might even come across the sight of a bald eagle crossing the sky. And if you travel around the coast of the island you might even get to spot whales dolphins, flying fish and sea lions all swimming at their leisure on open sea.

A hot buffet lunch will be provided at a Dominican ranch amidst the day’s adventurous activities. There will also be opportunities in the afternoon to participate in some “Wild West” activities including horseback riding or even a carriage ride if you prefer…undoubtedly an action packed day of unlimited adventure for all!
