  • Punta Cana: All-Inclusive Trip to Saona Island Paradise

    1. Punta Cana: All-Inclusive Trip to Saona Island Paradise

    Discover Isla Saona, a Caribbean oasis off the southern coast of the Dominican Republic. Find out how, originally named Adamanay by the Taino Indians, the island was renamed by Christopher Columbus, during his second voyage to the Americas in 1494.  Begin the tour by boarding a speedboat and jetting off to Saona Island. On the way, stop to swim in a waist-deep natural swimming pool with transparent waters. If you're lucky you'll see some starfish. When you arrive at Isla Saona, you'll have many activities to choose from. Wade in the turquoise waters, visit the open bar, take a nap on a beach lounge chair, walk along the coastline, or play volleyball. Indulge in a typical Dominican lunch of chicken, pork, rice, beans, salad, and fruit. You can even enjoy lobster and premium drinks when you book the VIP option. Take your time to discover the island and do it all.

    Beach and water were phenomenal! Alberto was an amazing guide! However they only have rum for drinks on the boat and lunch is not bad on the beach! Would definitely recommend this!
