A transport will be waiting for you at the taxi stand, at the exit of the cruise port, where all participants from the same boat as yours will gather. The driver will take you to our office in Bayahibe, the starting point of the excursion. Let's go to the breathtaking island of Saona! Our first stop is at the Penon, a rock formation. Our knowledgeable English-speaking guide will share fascinating insights into the history and culture of this area, including tales of the indigenous Taino people who once called it home. From there, we'll pass upon the mesmerizing mangrove forest - a wonderland of vibrant red mangroves that grow directly out of saltwater. Finally, we arrive at Saona Island itself! Our first port-of-call is Mano Juan village; here you can explore on foot and discover what life is like on a tropical paradise island. See colorful houses, local shops and meet some friendly locals along the way. As part of our visit to this idyllic location, we also have an opportunity to see a turtle nursery project run by a local family. They care for incubating eggs during nesting season and release baby turtles back into their natural habitat upon hatching (please note that sightings are dependent on seasonal factors). After working up an appetite exploring Mano Juan village, enjoy lunch with breathtaking views over Saona beach from one of our favorite restaurants serving delicious traditional Dominican cuisine. Fresh lobster* is available in season (from July 1st until February 29th) at $25 USD per person. Following lunchtime relaxation or snorkeling at Playa del Toro – arguably one of Saona's most enchanting beaches- we make our way towards La Piscina Natural (the famous natural pool). Here you can admire huge starfish while swimming in shallow waters - but please remember not to touch them! As your day draws to a close with memories made forevermore etched in your mind; return back to Bayahibe port where transportation awaits to take you back safely to La Romana Cruise port.
