Mit Carla und Ihrer Agentur kann man nur gewinnen. Wir hatten uns bei Ihr ein Boot ohne Skipper (sind wir selbst) gemietet. Ist nicht die Regel dort und vermutlich schwer zu organisieren - aber Carla hat es hinbekommen. Pünktlich auf die Minute, zuverlässig, Boot sehr guter Zustand, Beratung und Begleitung ebenfalls perfekt ! Also, wer dort sehr individuell und zuverlässig einen super Tag verbringen möchte, sollte sich an Carla und Ihre Agentur wenden ! /

With Carla and her Agency you will win in every case. We rent a Boot without Skipper (because we are Skipper on our own). Thats not usually there and we think it is very difficult to organise due to the safety issues there. But Carla organized it very well ! Just in time, boat in very good constitution, guidance though Carla always perfect ! Who will spend a very individuell and independent and wonderful day there, should contact Carla and her agency !

Fantastic! I had never been on Xmas holidays in a hot and sunny place..and most of all I'd never done such a great excursion like the one done this time to Saona! With other friends I've booked a boat from Carla..everything was amazing and really comfortable! The island, the sea, the atmosphere...everything was breathtaking..but also the organisation was super and really customised! No stress..just relax and fun! For sure I'll do it once again next time! Let's try it..it's really worth it.

My experince with Santo Domingo Vacation was over the top! we booked the yacht with a group of friends. The captain Gerardo was always nice and disposable. The yatch was clean and perfect and Brand new. It's absolutely the best option to visit Saona and to escape from thousands of tourists who are visiting it. 5 years ago i had taken an excursión to Saona with 30 more people and had nothing to do. Carla, welcomed us, and after a while we reached el canto de la playa in Saona, with almost nobody! the best picture of the Caribbean, you will get it here. After this, the captain took us to the Little town of Mano juan where we visited the turtles and the natural swimming pools where we saw sea stars. And wonderful day and an unforgetable experience.

We have been received at La Romana airport by a lovely italian girl named Carla who guided us to Bayahibe where she had already booked a very good accomodation for us into a cabana.
We decided to book with her a trip to Saona, and we had a very good transfer by a small but safe private boat, just as we wished to be! Quiet, few other tourists, far away from the chaos and enjoying a delicious lunch. Everything has been perfect! We are so glad to have chosen a private way to explore the place, and of course we suggest everyone to do the same. A private, ecological, intimate way to get in contact with the nature,the people and the soul of the place, there's no comparison with the chaotic common daily excursions...and rates are even cheaper the most of the time, for sure it's worth for!!!
You will never want to leave that magic place but you will take with you unic and wonderful reminds of it!

I reserved a half-day fishing with Santo Domingo Vacation out of Bayahibe, Dominican Republic. Carla was very helpful and set me up fishing with Captain Pepe on the SARA 1, a small panga boat with a 40 hp outboard. Capt. Pepe brought live bait and we fished the bouys off the coast. We trolled live baits on three or four different bouys with no luck. We headed back to one of the bouys previously fished and Capt. Pepe suggested hand lining with live bait. The captain threw the bait in, and "Fish On!" We had one Dorado to the boat, kept him in the water and caught four more Dorado in a "Fish Frenzy". All five Dorado were caught using hand lines, a great experience. The Dorado were jumping out of the water, the lines were around my feet and Capt. Pepe was throwing the fish in the boat. Capt. Pepe has a passion for fishing like myself. We lost a couple fish and used up all our bait. In an attempt not to spook the fish, we motored to another bouy and fished for live bait. We caught more bait (3) and then returned to the hot spot for some more action. We caught 2 more Dorado, lost one and again were out of bait. We headed back to the marina, hitting the bouys on our way back, catching bait and using fresh bait, caught two more Dorado on the way for a total of nine Dorado. My trip was from 8:00am to 12:00pm, but Capt. Pepe kept fishing till 2:00pm! It was just the two of us and we both had a great time. Be forewarned, bring cash, Carla did not accept my credit card. Luckily I had the cash. I would go back fishing with Pepe in a heart beat. Tight lines and sharp hooks! All the best! Thanks, Gary
