Saona Canto de la Playa, virgin beaches in small group

1. Saona Canto de la Playa, virgin beaches in small group

Transport will drive you to Bayahibe, the starting point of the excursion, where you will embark on the fast boat. Head over to Cotubanama National Park for a short stop in front of the Penon, where an English-speaking guide will talk to you about this cliff and the Taino natives, the first inhabitants of the island. You will also make a stop at the mangroves, which are trees growing directly in the seawater. First, stop on the island of Saona, at the beach of Canto de la playa where you'll walk along the magic white sand beach surrounded by coconut trees. There you will have time to relax or to snorkel. After these marvelous moments, you will get back on the fast boat to go to the village of Mano Juan for a Dominican lunch. Once done with lunch, let's take a cap and sun cream to visit the village of Mano Juan with the English-speaking guide and get a glimpse of the local life (wooden house, anecdotes, local shops, national sports...). At the village, you will also visit the typical turtle nursery, a project maintained by a local family. With the means at hand, they take care of the incubation of the eggs during the laying period and the release of the baby turtles into the sea. It is not 100% guaranteed to see hatchlings, it will depend on the season and the hatching cycle. Once the visit is over you will have a little time to take a nap at the water's edge or test your bargaining skills in the small local shops. To top it off, you will stop at the famous natural pool where you will be able to see the huge starfish (be careful, you can't touch them, we can only admire them and take pictures), have an aperitif in the turquoise Caribbean water and enjoy a wonderful moment. Come back to Bayahibe with beautiful memories.
