Your Adventure Starts Here!
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.
*Please don’t take the starfish out of the water to take pictures with them, they can survive only 10 seconds out of the water. Many people innocently pick them up without knowing the starfish are actually dying while they take pictures.

I’m planning my trip to Punta Cana for October and this sound so much fun. What are the best days to book this tour? And do you do something special for someone’s birthday? Last but not least is it safe?
5 months 16 days ago
Since Punta Cana is am all year round tourist destination the day you book the tour for really makes no difference so I would advise booking for the day that best fits your schedule. Please let us know during checkout that someone in your party is celebrating their birthday and we can do a little something special for them. Safety is the number one priority on all the tours so book with confidence!

We will be Punta full days Friday and Saturday of this week 2/20 and 2/21… We want to book the Saona Island tour but looking at the weather it shows rain both days. Being local down there what does a rain/thunderstorm consist of and what day would you suggest booking the tour for?

Just yesterday we had flash floods in Punta Cana / Bavaro due to a trough but this is extremely unusual especially in this time of the year so I just happened to be checking the weather forecast when we received your question. The trough that caused the rains yesterday is moving away and weather is back to normal, the rain/thunderstorm forecast is almost a trademark in the Caribbean due to high moisture but in Punta Cana it can be pouring one minute and complete sunshine the next so bad weather does not stick around for much. Weather wouldn’t be my main concern for choosing a day to go to Saona so it’s basically up to your personal preference to either go on Friday or Saturday. Hope this helps!
