Start your day with morning pickup from your Punta Cana hotel and a scenic drive by air-conditioned bus through the lush countryside of the Dominican Republic.
Take in the scenery of sugar cane fields and tropical fruit plantations before making a stop at Altos de Chavon, a large resort that was built to resemble a medieval village, the creation of a Hollywood set designer in the 1970s. The large property contains restaurants, boutique shops with locally made crafts, an art gallery and design school, golf courses, and lavish homes.
Continue to the port of La Romana to board your catamaran. On the way to Catalina Island, stop to snorkel at some of the Caribbean’s best diving sites, where you can see large schools of colorful tropical fish and coral reefs.
At the island, have free time to be as active or relaxed as you wish. Lounge on the beautiful white-sand beaches, ride the banana boat or Mega Wing, and watch a traditional Dominican Carnival performance. Dominican fare is served for lunch, and light refreshments and unlimited drinks are available throughout the day.
At the end of your full-day tour, you are returned to your Punta Cana hotel.
