We did a day trip from Iberostar Punta Cana. It was an hour bus ride then another hour on a boat. Luckily we got to sit on the nets on the boat so we were very comfortable. Others had to sit on side of boat and did not look comfy. The sailing was nice and smooth. We were told that... More

Saona is amazing. It is uninhabited so it has natural beauty everywhere without being destroyed with trash like most of the other areas in the Dominican. The tour we took provided us with BBQ that was quite delicious and the staff was friendly and courteous, unlike EVERYONE else we encountered throughout our visit. Isla Saona is a MUST SEE.

Gorgeous beach- beautiful turquoise waters, fantastic snorkeling, tasty drinks! The food on the buffet was great, flavorful and different than what we typically were fed on the resort. So that was a nice change. We booked our excursion through SeaPro Divers located at Now Larimar in Punta Cana and they made for a fantastic time! Can't wait to return!

Beautiful! Must see when you are visiting DR. Crystal clear water and breathtaking nature. Transport organized by catamaran/speed boat - both of them are great and provide different experience.

if you have an open bar, bbq and hot Caribbean sun, what do you need more? Maybe karibian music and dancing in hot send

This island should not be missed if you're travelling to Punta Cana. Beaches are amazing and the water is blue as blue can be. Take a catamaran trip there, you'll be glad you did.

My experience here was absolutely breath taking. The water is crystal clear. This is a great place to go snorkeling, and to take pictures with the beautiful starfishes in that area

What can I say, beautiful turquese sea, very good Rum, met friendly strangers from other nationalities, good music and party on the katamaran, very good buffette on the beach, it was amazing. The only downpoint is that you expect to see plenty of starfish and there are only 5-6 and the guys that take photos and charge for them have... More
