Saona Island Private Excursion

On the southeast coast of the Dominican Republic is one of the most magical spots in the country. And, what better than meeting him in private from Punta Cana?

To our classic Saona Island and Saona Island with Mano Juan experiences we have added this private excursion, a tour in which you will be the owner of the time and the places you want to know.

You will visit dream places such as the Natural Pool, where you can admire the beautiful starfish. They are the main inhabitants of this area of the Caribbean, and you will enjoy them with water that will only reach your waist.

Or visit Palmilla beach, where the sea merges with the fine white sand and the Dominican fauna and flora. And it is that in Saona there are still virgin paradises waiting for you to visit them.

Delving into the vegetation, dominated by a humid tropical forest, is another way in which you can make the most of your time. The tall coconut trees form a roof of vegetation that will make you feel in the middle of nowhere.

Returning to civilization, you can also visit the town of Mano Juan, to learn about the way of life of the island's inhabitants. And no, they are not there as a decoration for tourists, but have been inhabiting the wooden shacks of this place since 1944.

In this small fishing village you will also get to know the Sea Turtle Sanctuary, which has been dealing with the conservation of these animals in Caribbean waters for many years.

Why can't you miss this private excursion?

The main reason why you cannot miss this excursion is because of its private nature.

Knowing a place as special as Saona alone with your partner, your group of friends or family is a unique possibility. In addition, you will have a private lunch on Saona Island or, if you prefer, on board your boat.

And it is that Saona deserves it, since due to its natural character it was included in the Cotubanama National Park. There you will find a virgin place, in which the crystalline waters contrast with the white sand and the green that predominates in the interior of the small island.
