What you'll do

Saona Island is a must-see for any visitor to the Dominican Republic. This island is surrounded by white sand, crystal clear turquoise waters, and countless palm trees. This environment invites you to recharge your batteries. All in the vibrating ambiance of "Dominicana".

First, my compadre Pablo will pick you (and other guests) up from your hotel (don't worry, we have a policy of three stops max. and this is not a bus). We'll take you to a port in Bayahibe. Once on the speed boat/catamaran, you'll head to Saona Island. At some point, during the navigation, we'll stop at the crystal clear pool. You'll have the chance to swim in these waters for about 45 minutes. Maybe you'll sight a starfish!

Once the time has elapsed, you will advance your trip until you reach Saona Island, where you will enjoy approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes. Local food and drinks will be provided on the island. You'll be free to discover this beach, but, since more tourists visit this beautiful island, make sure to stay nearby compadre Pablo to make the best out of your experience.

After the experience comes to an end, you will board a fun catamaran to return to Bayahibe. On the catamaran, we'll have a real blast!

Once on shore, you'll take your transportation back to your hotel. Don't worry, three stops only! We promise, you'll sleep like a baby : )

Meet your host, Fernanda

Host on Airbnb since 2015
  • Identity verified
Hey! I'm Fernanda and I will be co-hosting this experience with Marco Mundo, our compadre Pablo, and our trusted driver Jose Bautista. We are delighted to organize this experience in Punta Cana. We all three have lived more than 8 years in this beautiful land, and we have been more than 5 years Representatives and Tourist Guides.

There're many people visiting Punta Cana so, in order to make our service unique, Pablo will explain to you in detail everything you will see (landscaping, ecological reserves, etc.) while enjoying the spicy Dominican culture.

We all speak three languages (Eng, Fr, Es), we love multiculturalism, traveling, and hosting our guests!

Join us in this experience and immerse yourself in the waters of the Caribbean Ocean and the Dominican culture!
