So what is the difference between a trip of many layers; bus, boats, beach, and the VIP track experience?
The transportation is shared, which makes it more fun as you enjoy different activities.
But you will be upgrading your lunch to lobster!
And if you want to go one better, then you will also have a private area on Saona Island beach, along with the delicious lunch and drinks.

So - today you will enjoy a trip that requires several different modes of transportation. Each play a part in your pleasure, from the first, boarding a vehicle for a ride that will bring you to the southern coast of the island, where you will debark on Bayahibe Beach. There you will begin your excitement, with one of a series of speedboats that will whisk you towards Saona Island. Before you reach your destination, a stop is made at the amazing natural pool which lies between Bayahibe and Saona. How cool it is to enjoy this spot with some drinks to mellow you out a little more quickly while lounging in the warm waters of this idyllic place. Enjoy the peace, the view and starfish the size of dinner plates before once again continuing your ride to Saona Island.

Saona Island lies just off the southeastern tip of the Dominican Republic and is part of the East National Park. The mangroves are gorgeous and the coral reefs are plentiful. The shallow waters are home to huge starfish, a perfect photo opportunity. This island calls to you and you will conquer its pleasures....soon!

As you approach, you will see a beach which spreads out in front of you. Pick your pleasure once you arrive, knowing it will not be your only fun of the day. Perhaps begin soaking up the sun before moving into the pristine waters to cool off and play. The music will begin and you can dance - anything - merengue, salsa, and more in your own style because who cares? Just have fun. Volleyball is an option as well so gather your friends, whether you brought them or just made them.

Food is a part of your fun and a delicious lobster lunch awaits you. Beverages include soft drinks and bottled water which are available for your whole stay on the island.

One more thing - you can upgrade your VIP status to include a private area on the beach!

The ride back is not on your speedboat but a leisurely one on a catamaran. You can spread out for your last moments of basking in the sun or dance with your friends for the final goodbye of the day. Personally we suggest a nap!
