Set sail from a fishing village and enjoy a cruise on a catamaran. In Cayo Levantado, relax in an exclusive area reserved on the beach and have lunch in a local restaurant.
What to Expect
Visit Cayo Levantado, the largest key in the Dominican Republic, discovered by Christopher Columbus during his second voyage to the Americas in 1493. Between 1600 and 1800 the French, Spanish and English empires fought for control of the area and pirates and buccaneers roamed free. Many stories — both true and legend — have risen from this period in history. One of those stories led to the naming of Cayo Levantado, which translates as "Risen Key."
Take a comfortable air-conditioned bus and enjoy a scenic ride past countryside views, coconut plantations, farm landscapes, local villages, rivers and local Caribbean life. Pass through typical fishing villages at the heart of the eastern coast of the island. Finally, reach a small fishing village where you'll board a catamaran.
Take a 30-minute boat ride in a 35-person catamaran and enjoy the changing ocean blues, Caribbean breezes, coastal landscapes and Samana Bay views. Treat yourself to a rum and soda drink or a refreshing bottle of water. The staff will pass around "mama juana," a typical Dominican drink for you to try.
When you reach Cayo Levantado you will be escorted to a special area of the beach, reserved for guests on the tour. Choose your chaise lounge, hang your towel and enjoy the sun, breeze and beautiful scenery. Order the beverage of your choice, either rum, soda, beer or water. Relax and bathe in the crystal clear waters, while taking in the Caribbean bay views.
At approximately 12:30, the staff will invite you to the restaurant. Choose from a varied menu of grilled fresh fish, grilled chicken, rice, pasta salad, green salad, tropical fruits, gelatin and coffee. If you wish, take a shower in the available facilities before lunch.
After lunch, return to your chaise lounge at the beach and spend 2 more hours enjoying your surroundings. At approximately 15:30, get back on the catamaran and return to Punta Cana. Arrival at your hotel in Punta Cana will be between 17:30 and 18:00.
