If you like to dive, and you want to find a paradise in the Caribbean, look no further, paradise is located on Catalina Island, one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean , a true dream place.
Catalina is a small island of less than 10 square kilometers off the coast of La Romana, from where you can see. The island is formed by impressive coral reefs and surrounded by one of the most diverse ecosystems of the Caribbean Sea. It is classified as a Protected Natural Park and is virtually uninhabited , making it a very popular place for diving, fishing and snorkeling , admiring its lush seabed full of corals, sea sponges and tropical fish.
Despite its size, the island has many beautiful white sand beaches, very protected from the wind, thanks to which, its turquoise and crystalline sea is always in absolute calm.
In Catalina Island there are two of the best places to dive in the Dominican Republic and they are recognized worldwide . This is the “Wall” and the Aquarium. “Very different between them, both are, however, worth exploring.
The Wall is an impressive wall that plunges into the Caribbean Sea, reaching a depth of about 100 meters, although marked by two steps, 25 and 40 meters respectively, which allow a further descent gradual.
The second point is the Aquarium and the name is more than indicative. The depth of this dive point is 11 meters, literally upholstered in coral formations, where the most typical species of the Caribbean Sea swim and live like seahorses, the famous lionfish and the toad fish, among others. </ p> And one last detail to consider for diving enthusiasts: Catalina Island has optimal weather conditions almost all year.
