Default Playa Rincon Dominican Republic Tour 1 JUL 08

If anyone else is interested in visiting Playa Rincon while we are in Dominican Rebublic on July 1st, I am trying to get enough people together to book an excursion with Casa Dorado. The Snorkeling and Playa Rincon Trip would be $240 for up to 10 people ($24/person). Below are details I received in an email from the company and email me at bearing316@aol.com if interested 8) :

Thank you for your interest in Casa Dorado!! Our
excursions leave from Las Galeras beach. All prices
are based on up to 10 people, not per person.

Playa Rincon Excursion - Conde Nast Traveler ranked
this beach as one of the world's 10 best. It's so
splendid, in fact, that many Dominicans refer to it as
the most beautiful on the island. Over three miles
long, Playa Rincon is surrounded by coconut palms and
almond trees, not to mention a 2,000 foot mountain on
one end. The best way to get to this isolated beach is
by boat; a ride that is definitely worth it.
Round-trip boat ride from Las Galeras main beach to
Playa Rincon is $160 for up to 10 people. There are
several small restaurants on Playa Rincon, where you
can order a fish, lobster or chicken lunch.

Snorkeling at La Playita/Playa Rincon Excursion -
Round-trip boat ride to la Playita to snorkel followed
by swimming at Playa Rincon. We provide all snorkeling
equipment and ice cold water. The price of the trip
is $240 for up to 10 people. Lunch can be ordered in
La Playita and cooked while you snorkel.

We are located in Las Galeras, which is 18 miles from
Samana. We can reserve a taxi that will be waiting
for you on the Samana boat Dock and will bring you
straight to Las Galeras main beach and return you at
your leisure. The taxi is $70/roundtrip for up to 8
people and $80/roundtrip for 9-10 people. The taxi is
a large van/small bus that easily fits 10 passengers.

Lunch is not included in any of these prices, but they
run $10-18 per person. Let me know if you have any

Default Snorkeling in Samana

Rincon is beautiful, but the snorkeling is not very good. Same with the smaller beaches near Samana. I wouldn't pay to snorkel here. Save it for another stop.
