It is next to the hotel and therefore well worth visiting. There are plenty of interesting and impressive plants ie trees with amazing with huge roots and little birds which, unfortunately, are not always easy to catch on camera!!

Wild and savage Exellent coastal sight. Lots of mosquitos though. So be prepared with decent protection. Shore is wild and very nice. Better to be visited with a boat and stop time to time

This place is out of the world beautiful! If you get the chance you really have to go. Isla Saona is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen!

You can hike through the park and explore a freshwater cave, and even snorkel or dive in the cave. Bring bug spray (or wear long cloths) and wear hiking shoes. You also need a flashlight for the cave. There's also organized tours of the park...we...More

For $3 US per person this is well worth exploring. You can hike to a natural underground cave. It's pretty awesome. You need to wear running shoes and you MUST bring a flashlight or a headlamp. Go in the morning when it is cooler. The...More
