Overview of my day in La Romana, check this before booking a Shore Excursion.
We are a family with 2 kids, 8 & 12 who stayed at Dreams La Romana. We selected Seavis’ Saona Crusoe VIP tour based on reviews on Tripadvisor and so glad that we did! Seavis was very prompt in answering my questions via email and we booked online with no deposit required. There were two speedboats of 30 people each and Cisco was our guide. He was very funny and informative. The speedboat ride was quite thrilling and definitely not for anyone with back problems, our backs were a bit sore the day after as the seats were not padded and you felt every bump! The tour is exactly as described on their website. The highlights for us were the Piscina Natural with the starfish, the sea turtle project in Mano Juan (our kids were able to hold 2 day-old turtles) and Canto de la Playa (one of the most beautiful beaches). Lunch was delicious - rice, pasta, chicken, pork, salads and fresh fruit. Our kids have not stopped talking about the turtles and the starfish - we would definitely recommend this tour! Our tour guide was fantastic, great sense of humor, we have been talking about him since we got back. He even served us homemade cake at the starfish site to go with our rum drinks! This excursion was well run, timely and worth the money. All six of us agreed it was a great memory. FYI: we were off the Carnival Breeze and the excursion was in La Romana, Dominican Republic.
