    What to Expect
    Your friendly guide and driver will collect you from your Punta Cana hotel in the early morning and transport you in air-conditioned comfort on a one-hour scenic bus ride through the epic landscapes of Dominican Republic’s stunning countryside to the town of Miches. Your Samana day trip with stops at El Limon Waterfall and Cayo Levantado from Punto Cana kicks off with a catamaran cruise across the Samana Bay.

    You’ll disembark at Santa Barbara de Samana and hop into a safari truck that will take you through the tropical foliage of Ceyba Park. Explore the garden, which is home to some 100 exotic plants and sample local fruits fresh from the trees!

    Travel by foot along the famed El Malecon—the boardwalk that winds along the coast of Samana. You’ll enjoy a savory lunch at a local restaurant filled with Caribbean cuisine. (Rum, juice, water, and soda are included.)

    Finally, climb back into your catamaran and venture off to the shores of Cayo Levantado—known also as Bacardi Island. Take some time to enjoy the white sandy beaches and crystal blue waters while sipping on a cold beer, juice or soda (provided). When the day is through, you’ll head back to Miches and finally be dropped back at your Punta Cana hotel.

    Ok, don't go into this thinking it's going to be extravagant (as I did). It's a long ride just to get to the boat, and the towns are in very poor shape, so to call it sightseeing is an overstatement. The catamaran ride was neat, but it rained, so we were pelted with raindrops

    We booked this for Friday, our bus never showed up, luckily sunwing rep switched us to Saturday. Had to get up at 5:30 due to how far away our resort it, so keep in mind the distance away you are from the tour you are if you don’t want an earlier rise, it is an ALL DAY tour!!

    This was an all day tour with an early start. I would recommend anyone taking this trip have endurance and have no problems walking. The catamaran to and from the island of samana was very rough. More so coming back than going. That wasn't expected , but we survived. Our tour
