Our own exclusive tour offering two breathtaking local attractions in one day. Saona Island, the pearl of the Dominican Republic and Altos de Chavon, a special re-creation of a Mediterranean village in the shade of palm trees.
- Travel by minibus to Altos de Chavón and then after a 45 minute visit, we travel to the port. The journey takes 60-80 minutes. You’ll be picked up from your hotel reception in air conditioned, comfortable buses of 10-20 people with experienced drivers. During the journey we can gain insights into the lives of local residents.
- On a speedboat we continue the sea trip and visit the most beautiful beaches of the Eastern National Park. During the excursion we visit the shores where most visitors do not.
- Canto de Playa is the last beach on Saona Island. The first visit is to Canto de la Playa, one of Saona’s most beautiful and furthest beaches. White sand, crystal clear water and we can see the most beautiful colours here. We spend two hours on this beach.
- Mano Juan is the only fishing village on the island, where we can see the lives of locals. In this picturesque place we have 45 minutes, and in certain months the local turtle shelter will allow you to have a cuddle. We continue our journey to Catuano Beach where, besides some rest on the beach, our private restaurant can be found here.
- Lunch. A varied buffet lunch with a full range of choices. After lunch, you can listen to music, practice bachata and merengue dances, snorkel in the crystal clear water where you can see fishes of different sizes and colours
- The next stop is the spectacular view of the Mangrove forests.
- We can see the sea stars in the world’s largest natural pool with shallow (1,5 meter deep) and crystal clear water, white sand and 400 meters from the beach.
- The program ends at 5:30 pm and we return to the hotels.
