A very fun trip from start to finish. We took the Luxe version with Soltour and had a mini river cruise before travelling to the island. This was a pleasant addition as you get to see a very different type of landscape, lush greenery and mountains.
The trip over to the island is lovely (speedboat on the way there, catamaran on the way back) - wasn't too keen on the stop to see the starfish (too many boats for my liking) however you forget that part once you get to the island which is lovely. Just the idyllic setting you would expect from a Caribbean holiday, very different beach to Bavaro which is where we were staying.
Lunch was fine, nothing amazing but adequate and as with every trip in DM, there was plenty of rum going around. Plenty of space to lie around and chill and about 3 hours at the beach. We went for a walk to the far end of the beach and felt like we'd seen a lot more than others who just stayed put. Word of warning though - I was covered in mosquito bites by the end of the day.
The catamaran trip on the way back was great fun, with members of the crew dancing merengue and other typical dances and picking out other daytrippers to join them.
All in all, it was a very enjoyable day :)
