Doing some online research Bayahibe comes up. I wonder if it's better than Cayo Arena.
I haven't been to either but Cayo Arena is much closer.
Ideally I would like to find an area where I can snorkel for a few days to a week that's not about taking a one day excursion for $100 and housing is safe, clean and not too expensive.
I have not snorkeled but dove in Bayahibe. It was about as good as it gets in this country. It has been a while but I do believe at least one of the spots was shallow enough to snorkel.
Can you be a little more specific..
I am so there...just couple short months now..
But Are you referring to samana City ? by the Grand Bahia principe side ? or by Cayo Levantado
... I am guessing its near that nice Hotel on top of that big HILL, from central Samana City. I only got as close as the front gate unfortunately..
Really curious about this.. is there public access point
