Hi Everyone

Wondering if anyone knows if it is possible to overnight on Saona Island or are there just day trips available. Anyone know of a pension or family there renting accommodations. If not what are your recommendationed companies for the cheapest safest day tour. Thanks in advance.

The town of Bayahibe, about 20 mins drive from Altos de Chavon, is a nice place to stay and the base for trips to Saona island. Officially there are no places to stay on the island itself, but I have heard that in reality it is possible to rent a room there.

If you stay at a hotel in Bayahibe (e.g the Hotel Bayahibe - very good value at about RS$2,000 per room with breaskfast) they will organise a day trip to Saona for you, or you can negotiate directly with the boat owners on the beach. It is a lovely experience, I highly recommend it.
