A long day definitely not for babies and small Children (a lot of alcohol on the catamaran) Tour of Altos de Chavo'n beautiful! Our guide Benjamin was very informative and friendly! The catamaran ride to the Island was a large party with dancing and alcohol. I saw a mother take her children to a different part of the boat. We were nervous with no life jackets. Saona Island and the national park are gorgeous! dinner was average as it has to be shipped earlier. then we left on a large speed boat to a natural pool you can walk with starfish! We all wore Life Jackets and we were very pleased with attention to safety! The starfish and the water is so amazing! I would have given a higher rating except the van was 30 min late picking us up with no notice and we were concerned we missed them and the lounge chairs at Saona were dirty with bird poop! all in all a great experience we loved our Guide Benjamin!
Zipline gives you a great view. Don't wear too short trousers as the climbing harness could hurt a little. I felt totally save through all the ziplines. You can take your camera on the ziplines but you are not allowed to take pictures during the ride. Only when you are on the platforms. Be sure to secure your camera during the ziplining, you can not hold it. When it comes to the monkeys be sure your camera is ready. The monkeys are very very cute and fast. You don't want to miss them. Overall I can highly recommend this. It was so much fun and we spent a great day in the mountains.
They did really theirs best fulfilling "mission impossible". 60 km in DR is a fortune of time. Organization was perfect. The island is beautiful, the beach is splendid, but there are too many boats near it and it is almost not possible to swim. The trip with the catamaran was a nice party, also the way back with the speed boats and the short stop on the second beach. Same is almost everywhere in DR, so maybe 3 hours bus drive is a time to save ...
Once the actual safari started, after a late pickup and sitting at a gas station for too long waiting on another truck, it was good. Samuel was a great tour guide and very informative. I wish that the initial driver was more forthcoming with why we were sitting at a gas station which made me nervous. We had to ask what was going on before we got any information.
I'm glad to have visited these 2 places, they are beautiful and interesting. The only con in this trip is the tour operator not being flexible enough to pick us up at our hotel lobby. We had to go all the way to the front entrance, which is inconvenient to us.
