Overview
Spend the day away from Punta Cana at two must-see Dominican destinations: Altos de Chavon and Saona Island. First, see the recreation of a 16th-century Mediterranean village. Then, spend free time at a sparsely populated island with white-sand beaches and clear, turquoise waters. Top it off with a refreshing swim at a natural pool.
