Located just off the coast of the Dominican Republic is the Caribbean tropical Saona island (isla Saona). This beautiful island was originally named “Adamanay” by the island’s original inhabitants. In 1494, the explorer Christopher Columbus renamed the island in honor of one of his friends who lived in Savona, Italy.

This island is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Dominican Republic. It is an island of white sand beaches, numerous palm trees and some of the bluest waters found anywhere in the world.

As part of the tour to this island paradise, guests will be transported to the island on a speedboat to arrive quickly in order to enjoy what the Saona offers. Guests will enjoy swimming, an open bar, playing beach volleyball and relaxing in the tropical breezes.

Also, a lunch will be served to each guest. The lunch includes Dominican foods including rice, beans, pork and chicken.

The return trip to the mainland is on a catamaran. There is an open bar on this cruise. Guests will enjoy this slow moving trip on gorgeous waters as they listen to and enjoy the sounds of Latin music.

    Brilliant tour! We had a wonderful day from start to finish, really enjoyed the stop to see the starfish the staff actually swam out to get some more for us to appreciate. We loved our time on the island and my husband’s favorite part of the day was the (drumroll please) FOOD!

    I wasn’t looking forward to a slow moving catamaran trip to head back home but once it was time to leave the island I wasn’t ready to end my day so the slow moving ride back was perfect. A great day, totally recommend it. I was actually tempted to do this excursion twice during our holidays.
