Explore Saona Island and Mano Juan on a full-day trip by catamaran from Punta Cana. Visit beautiful places at strategic times to avoid crowds, go snorkeling in Cotubanamá National Park, and enjoy a Dominican lunch. Board the catamaran to begin the tour, then set sail near the coast, enjoying music, dancing, and a delicious snack as you go. Make your first stop at the beautiful Fan Beach (Playa Abanico), one of the most beautiful beaches on Saona Island. Spend time resting your mind and body between palm trees and sun loungers, which invite you to dream of the sound of the waves. After the enjoyment of Playa Abanico, continue to Pueblo Mano Juan, a town founded by fishermen on the border between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, and soak up its pleasant and picturesque atmosphere. As well as walking the town's streets, visit the Sanctuary of the Soani Turtles, where its founder will show you how the habitats, turtles, and eggs are preserved to promote their life in the sea. Given the delicate situation experienced by local turtle species, this place is of vital importance. Still in Mano Juan, savor a delicious typical Dominican lunch accompanied by a glass of wine. Rested and recharged, head after toward Los Toros beach, where you can bathe and enjoy the tranquillity and crystal-clear waters of this magical and paradisiacal beach. Continue sailing until you reach the legendary natural pool in Cotubanamá Natural Park. Enjoy time to snorkel in the turqoise waters next to the famous starfish. This will be your last stop, and from here you will return to Bayahibe pier, where the tour ends.
