This was the complete package. We had previously booked two trips using a local vendor. We found the transfers took most of the day, changing buses at various meeting points with no real guidance. At one point we had to get off one bus and onto an other on a highway interchange where the drivers took our photographs for reference! Very disconcerting. Rest assured booking your trip with Get Your Guide is haste free and worry free, our local contact called in advance to tell us the pick up point and time and that was it, onwards to our destination! What a destination! Catamaran cruise to a beautiful picturesque beach. Stopping for a swim on a sand bar, awesome lunch, plenty free booze. Everything taken care of by our attentive and informed guide pappi. Great day out and certainly the best trip we had during our stay in paradise.
The excursion was definitely involving and very intense! Pro. Notwithstanding the several shifts and activities it was perfectly organised. Guides were very well prepared and provided a big range of info. Places visited were stunning. Cayo Levantado is a paradise. Cons. Before your horse ride to Limon waterfall: take into consideration that the accompanying guys receive no salary for their services (they act as "volunteers"). Each accompany guy is given an horse (and takes care of feeding and cleaning it) and they only live with the tips provided by visitors. Unfortunately the time to enjoy Cayo Levantado (aprox 1 hour30) is very short. Mind the urchins!
Given that it was one of the cheapest excursions, I was sceptical as to how good it would be and it turned out to be excellent. Never a dull moment with free drinks and music playing the whole time. The snorkelling was good, there weren’t thousands of fish but there was enough to be entertaining. The staff were lovely and the floating bar was great fun. Would definitely do it again :)
We had a fantastic day! We went on the morning cruise, the boat was much larger than expected and the cruise were all very friendly. They all spoke multiple languages which accommodated everyone! The snorkelling was amazing and the natural pool was beautiful. Loved the floating bar and the crew were fabulous dancers!
The trip was well organised. We really enjoyed the natural swimming pool and took some great pictures there. Saona island itself is very beautiful to visit however it felt a bit crowded, so we did not get to relax that much laying in the sunbeds. Catamaran and speedboat trips were also very enjoyable.
