As a Dominican, one of the things that excite us the most is talking about our country; about its beautiful beaches, mountains, rivers, its people, culture and that is precisely why many tourists come to our island. In our article today, we will take you to a small island, located east of the Dominican Republic, where apart from its literally paradisiacal natural environment, what you experience from the moment you embark, is a totally memorable experience.

Saona Island is located within the Cotubanamá National Park, an immense natural reserve in the southeastern region of the country, which, with its turquoise blue beaches, fine white sand, its mangroves, tall coconut palms, its coral reefs, and marine life, make this place is visited by thousands of tourists throughout the year, making La Isla Saona the no. 1 excursion in the Dominican Republic.

The excursion, and fun, begin in Bayahibe, leaving at 9:00 a.m., on a catamaran accompanied by a DJ on board who is in charge of playing the best Dominican music so don’t forget to get up and dance! The estimated travel time to the island is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, and once you arrive a delicious lunch prepared by Dominican chefs awaits you. There they will spend three incredible hours enjoying the atmosphere, the crystalline beach, and where you will also find hammocks and masseurs that will make your time on the island even more relaxing.

At the end of this time, the excursion will depart aboard a speedboat heading to Bayahibe, but not before making a stop at one of the most anticipated points of the tour. It is about Palmilla, better known as “the natural pool”, a totally virgin area, where you can also interact with the starfish, remembering to always treat them with great care and respect.

This tour is an adventure, and the good thing is you can repeat it as many times as you want, the excursion to the island is done daily and has an estimated value per person of USD $ 85.00 p / p.
