This weekend a very special boat trip to Isla Catalina is taking place! The trip leaves from La Romana and sails directly to Isla Catalina, where it stops in a beautiful spot – perfect for snorkelling or just splashing around!
Following plenty of snorkelling (and drinking and sun-bathing) all day-trippers will be taken by yola onto a private beach on the actual island – with plenty of sun loungers, sun beds, a bar and of course a stunning stretch of beach – ideal to relax by or enjoy a dip in the crystal blue ocean.
Included in the trip are all you could possibly want to drink (water, local beers and of course rum and coke), as well as a full bbq style lunch – which is prepared on the island and served on the beach, which is set up with big table-clothed tables – making it easy to enjoy both the food and the relaxing beach atmosphere.
Having myself enjoyed this exact trip several times over the last year – I can personally recommend it – if you’re free on Sunday, it’s the perfect way to spend the day with your family or friends!
Here, Julia Torres, who co-ordinates the tours gives you the full details:
