One full day staying in Bayahibe. What should we do?

We are staying at a small hotel in Bayahibe for three nights with two full days (Monday and Tuesday). We have one full day tour planned with Seavis to Saona Island on Tuesday. What should we do for the other day? Should we go to Dominicus Beach for the day? Will this be difficult if we aren't staying at a resort?

The national park looks really interesting but Seavis isn't running their tour there on Mondays. I'm not sure if there is another company that does. Suggestions?

You can access the beach at Dominicus via the public beach area. It's a 5 minute drive from Bayahibe village. Taxi costs US$10 per taxi one way. Local bus (guagua) costs less than US$1. Catch the guagua (it looks like a minivan) from in front of the Supermercado Defensa in the village, ask them to drop you near "Playa publico Dominicus", it's a short walk from where they will drop you.

Some other things to do:

btw Saona Island and surrounding area is part of the National Park. Depending on which Seavis tour you take you might pass through the mangroves and lagoon.

Padre Nuestro is another part of the park inland from Bayahibe. You can get tickets and a guide from the Park Admin Center next to the large bus car park in Bayahibe. Tip: take water and mosquito spray with you.
