After your hotel pickup by a minivan in Santo Domingo you will enjoy a scenic 2-hour drive east towards the beautiful Bayahibe region. A fisherman village located on the southeast coast of the Dominican Republic. At the Port of Bayahibe, you will board a catamaran to Saona Island. The island is located just off the south coast of the Dominican Republic. During the Catamaran tour, you can pick up merengue moves with the crew or sip on the Caribbean cocktails that are completely for free.
Dock at Saona Island and spend a luxurious six hours of free time in this sparsely populated stretch of land, which measures around 15 miles long by 3 miles wide (24 km by 5 km). Discover tropical birds and fish while exploring the island’s lagoons, caves and offshore snorkeling. (Activities are optional and at your own expense.) Pick up a game of volleyball or book a massage right there on the beach.
Or, simply bask in the sun and watch coconut palms sway, with the clear blue waters ahead. Dig into a Dominican buffet lunch expertly prepared by locals and enjoy the open bar. When it’s time to leave, your boat speeds you to Bayahibe Port, where your minivan waits to transport you back to your Santo Domingo hotel.
Postcard-perfect Saona Island is often used by filmmakers and advertisers for its quintessential ‘desert island’ setting. Treat yourself to some serious R&R with this day trip to Saona Island from Santo Domingo. Dig your toes in the white-sand beaches, and banish any moody blues from your system. A buffet lunch and an open bar complete this beachside experience.
