Dominican coastline is a diver’s paradise


The Dominican Republic is ranked as one of the top Caribbean diving destinations.

The exceptional visibility of its many diving sites, the abundant and diverse marine life, as well as the 25-30 (Celsius) water temperatures, all come together to make the Dominican Republic an important diving destination.

Because diving activities have become an important part of the country’s tourism industry, various businesses, schools and hotels offer diving excursions in all tourism regions.

In Puerto Plata, on the country’s north coast, and in the eastern region, there are many authorized businesses that offer diving classes and tours. For example:
