Catalina island is a beautiful Caribbean island to visit, but for some people is not enough “action” to be just on the beach all day. So how about the Catalina Island excursion with a twist?
You will have a day filled with different activities. Start with some snorkeling by Catalina island, then a nice relaxing time on the white sandy beach. After that back to the boat and heading towards mainland, passing by La Romana cruise ship port and continue along Casa de Campo marina to see some beautiful yachts and also mansions of rich and famous people you might know. Who are they? Well, you have to go for the trip to find out.
You will continue up the river Chavon, sailing below the famous Altos de Chavon between the lush green riverbanks, while pelicans and frigate-birds gliding above. After crossing the bridge you will go to the riverboat and continue the ride through the tropical forest, enjoying the beautiful view, while sipping the local drinks. You will get off the boat for lunch at a farm located in a jungle like forest. If you are interested, you can go for the farm tour to learn more about Dominican fauna and flora and visit the wildlife sanctuary. After some relaxing time and more drinks you will board the riverboat again and return to the dyke where you switched the boats on the way to the farm. The buses / taxis will be waiting there to take you back to the hotel.
