There are several tours that take visitors to this one-of-a-kind paradise, but here’s a narration that will let you picture what you could enjoy in this natural, fun and relaxing experience, provided by Nexus Tours. Just imagine getting up early, filling your lungs with the freshest morning air and getting ready for this whole-day adventure. A short scenic drive from your hotel takes you to a dock where you jump on board your comfortable catamaran and set sail on the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean.

The sun shines, its warm caress on your skin blends perfectly with the tropical breeze, and suddenly you arrive to a natural pool lagoon where you cool down from the heat with a delicious and refreshing fruit-flavored cocktail. After soaking up the sun you decide to plunge into the refreshing turquoise sea surrounded by beautiful starfish.


Your final destination is the famous Saona Island, a tropical setting frequently used by the film industry, where you lay down on the white sand to relax and delight your palate with a delicious buffet meal, cooling down under the shade of a palm tree. Now it’s time to enjoy your choice of entertainment, whether it is to play a fun beach volleyball match with your fellow travelers, learn to dance like a Dominican with some merengue lessons, plunge into the sea or simply enjoy some free time chilling and getting ready for the journey back.


To close with a flourish your beautiful catamaran offers live music entertainment and delicious unlimited drinks from the open bar, while the sun goes down in the horizon and you take the pictures of a day to remember. But who knows? You might not like this tour as some people are not that fond of nature, food, drinks and warm weather…
