Electric Paradise festival is coming back this December!

electric-paradise-2016

The third edition of the electronic music festival “Electric Paradise” is coming back and guest artists are already being advertised . In its third edition, which will be held on December 17 in Cap Cana, Juanillo beach, the festival has evolved from being only electronically to cover various genres of world music.

“As in the last edition, we are mixing genres like Pop, EDM, Tech House, Indie and Deep House but this time decided to add Rap, Hip Hop and Reggae to take it to another level,” said Cynthia Carrasco, Manager of Destilados de Cervecería Nacional Dominicana.

Among the first artists to be annunced there is also the well-known rapper Snoop Dogg. Snoop Dogg returns to Dominican Republic after three years of treading these scenarios to play hits like “Drop it like it’s hot”, “What’s My Name” and “Gin and Juice”.

“This is just the beginning. In the coming days we will be announcing the remaining 20 artists that will make this “line up” in the most shocking in the history of this event” said Carrasco.

The festival returns this year with three simultaneous stages, where each one can live memorable experiences, blending good music, art, design and technology.

Snorkeling in Punta Cana: avoid the high expectations

punta-cana-snorkelingThat’s it dear readers. Home to the longest coral reef in the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is interestingly not one of the top snorkeling/diving destinations in the Caribbean, neither in the country itself. If you’ve been in places like Virgin Islands, Curacao, Mexico, Turks and Caicos, then forget a similar experience. Its location along the Atlantic Coast explains it all. Punta Cana waters are rougher than those along the Caribbean coast, especially in winter.

punta-cana-snorkeling-3Also most coral reefs have been damaged over the years from un-eco friendly water sports (diving) and fisherman. That’s the main reason why snorkeling and diving in Punta Cana is not a top activity. This doesn’t mean snorkeling is out of the question, but you will have to reconsider your expectations.

Some local sites to consider include the wreck site of the Monica, or the shallows near the resort Club Med. Casual snorkeling from shore is also not possible in many places (specially alongside Bavaro Beach) due to heavy boat traffic; swimmers are confined to designated areas. punta-cana-snorkeling-2A good choice would be the section at Cabeza de Toro Beach, without boat traffic, in resorts like Catalonia or Natura Park that offer a decent snorkeling from shore.

As a general practice, most resorts and hotels in the area offer their guests free snorkeling gear as part of their stay. Most agree that the better option will be to sign up for a snorkeling tour by boat to reach the best reefs.

Off Punta Cana the best snorkeling/diving excursions are around 90 minutes away in Caribbean waters, around Catalina Island. Many dive centers send their snorkelers to Catalina or Bayahibe, in the south part facing the Caribbean Sea, much calmer with clear waters. The “Wall” reef is one of the best reefs in all the Country.

As many say, Punta Cana is just good to relax and get wet, but not that good for snorkeling.
