We snorkeled in La Romana and it was awesome. The catamaran was huge and the guides were really friendly. They have a really nice bar-b-que on the island for you. Just to let you know, shopping is NOT inexpensive there. We spent $127 for 2 t-shirts, 2 tropical shirts, and 6 shot glasses (it was in booth #4). The island is set up with loads of beach lounges, restrooms, and shops. It looked to me like it was owned by Costa, or they heavily invested there. The trip over to the mainland takes a good while. One of the couples we dined with went over and did a land tour. It took them the entire day. I didn't see any deep sea fishing boats, but maybe they were there. I hope you have as much fun as we did on the Magica, she's a really beautiful ship!
