We were picked up at the hotel about 1 hour late, but we were informed about the delay, so we didn't really mind. With a small tour group we drove to the "harbour", from there with the catamaran to the island of Saona, the trip was a bit long, could have been shorter so that we would have had more time on the island. The island was very pretty and well organized, food was good too & had toilets. Lots of people, but spread out well. After about 2 hours stay we continued with the speedboat to the natural pool, the ride was great & adrenaline rich :-). Unfortunately, the water wasn't very clear that day and we couldn't see anything even though you could stand there, not even starfish etc. We would do the trip again at any time, our guide Rey and his crew seem to enjoy their work and are leading us great through the trip.

Beautiful place. Organization Ok. First, we took a motorboat and it is a great option, because we were one of the first on the island and it was quiet. The food on the island was delicious. We are vegetarians and luckily there were a couple of options for us too, we came back by catamaran and had fun with the music. I recommend.

little feedback, exit 48 hours ago. First of all, the care, we were a family of 4. But from one hotel to another, the tourists late and their own way of stopping on the way to do without passengers, 6 in this bus against 5 others here... we didn't understand everything about this traffic, we didn't have to change buses... phew... arrived at the port 1h30 late !!!!! in reality, we all get on small boats to go on the catamaran much further ... and we wait for all the passengers to be there .... even us, with so much delay, we still had to wait for others ... On board the music was so loud that we made earplugs out of handkerchiefs ... bring protection!!! but the rum coca is flowing!!! Paradise magical island!!! on the return snorkeling stop 15 min top !! but 1 engine out of 2, return to 10km/h for 30min, we were very far from arriving.. return to hotel 4 hours after the hour..
