In this map you can see the points that we will visit in our excursion to Saona Island.
Saona Island is not only a beautiful natural place, but it also has a very interesting history. For the Tainos, the indigenous inhabitants of the island, it was called Adamanay. It was later, with the arrival of Christopher Columbus, when the island was called Bella Savonesa in honor of Michele da Cuneo, a native of the city of Savona, Italy.
Here you can also find the famous Cotubanamá cave, where the Taino cacique of the same name was executed. Today it is another of the island's tourist attractions.
Saona is a movie island, and in the literal sense of the word. Some scenes of the film Pirates of the Caribbean were shot here. But if a movie has always marked Saona Island, that was Blue Lagoon, "El Lago Azul" in Spanish. Thanks to the fact that it was filmed in these landscapes, thousands of people discovered Isla Saona through the big screen.
No. Eating lobster at the buffet is an extra service that you can book separately when you purchase the excursion.
The lobsters of our free buffet are fished every day in the Bayahibe beaches, in order to guarantee the freshness of the product. This area of the Caribbean enjoys a large amount of crustaceans and mollusks that feed on plankton and sargassum, being its ideal environment. So you cannot leave Saona Island without tasting Dominican lobster.
After an early departure from the hotel, 8 hours of pure fun await you on our visit to Saona Island.
