  • Wow, what a most beautiful place, is a "must go" If these 7 days in Punta Cana. If you go from Punta Cana, you take a tour bus that takes you to Bayahibe, this trip takes approx. 1 hour 10 minutes, then from Bayahibe (fishing village) the tour stop for 20 minutes to buy some souvenirs, hats slefie sticks and all kinds of local items that sell vendors. From Bayahibe to La Isla Saona speedboat takes 35 minutes, stop forced are the natural pools that are 500 metres from the island, it's sand banks that rise from the bottom of the sea surface and the water arrives to the chest or a little further down, is simply wonderful, is a paradise. After the almost obligatory stop in the natural pools in 15 minutes the boats reach Saona Island where there is usually a buffet of food waiting for tourists. Already on the island one can relax, enjoy the crystal clear waters, bathing, enjoy food and appreciate the abundant vegetation, the beaches that seem to be of commercial television. There to take compulsory sunglasses because the sand is very white, carry camera, take time because it is truly a tropical paradise. Try not to contaminate with garbage because it's a place that in spite of the visited is very clean.

  • The transfer is by catamaran, time for lunch on the beach and enjoy the day. There's always music, drinking and dancing to enjoy. The return is carried out on a speedboat to an area of low depth (water up to waist), allows you to dive, swim, take a good free cuba and continue to enjoy.
