Highly recommended!!! Remember to bring your own bandana/head scarf and sunglasses. They can be little pricey at the gift shop. I also recommend purchasing the pictures. I paid $40 (plus a $5 tip) for about 40 pictures!!! The memories are priceless!

Saona Island was beautiful! The Buggy experience was fun however it should have been communicated to leave things in the locker rooms behind to have dry clothes upon our return. The bags we carried were completely soaked in mud! :-P

Great walk and very interesting information provided by our guide. Good shoes are a must, we walked through loadsof mud and little streams, so count on your shoes getting muddy and wet, we didn t mind that.

The only reason trip does not get 5 stars is the stop at the giftshop which i consider a waste of time. USD40 for swimming shorts made in china is a ripoff. I would rather spend the time in Isla Saona

It was a decent excursion. 3 stops but at 2 of the stops people are relentlessly hounding u to buy stuff. it is very uncomfortable and stressful. 120 dollars later .
