Yes, it is the main attraction of the area and it gets a lot of tourists. However, the tour companies manage to organize things well and you don't feel like you're bumbing into each other, everyone gets to see the island like they'd have it for their own for a little while. It's one little bit of paradise, unspoilt white... More

We were picked up and brought to a ranch, where we were loaded onto horses. We went on a horseback ride tour of Bayahibe on our way to Parque Nacional Del Este to see the underwater caves. We had a small group and great tour guides! Definitely an experience worth doing!

They gave us a ride to the park entrance where we walked about a mile to where the guides are (get a motoconcho if you... More

A hidden gem in Bayahibe. Hire a motoconcho/guide ($10) and get a park pass ($2.50) and spend your afternoon looking at and swimming in some cool caves. We went there and had the caves to ourselves for most of an hour before another couple showed up. Kids loved it.

We took the Pirate Ship tour to Saona Island. The kids (4 and 6) loved it. Everyone was dressed up as Pirates and the 13 people staff did a great job in animation. Saona island is as close as it gets to tropical paradise: beautiful sand beaches, turquoise water and palm trees. You have to take a boat tour to... More

you have to buy a ticket in Bayahibe to enter the park. Then you have to engage a guide or tour to access the park. fairly confusing system. You should book thru your hotel if you dont speak at least some spanish
