Although visiting Saona Island was the highlight of our day, the fun wasn’t quite over yet. Instead of returning via speedboat, we slowly sailed back via catamaran. I lovingly referred to it as the “party catamaran” (a la party bus) because that’s exactly what it felt like. As soon as we were onboard, the hostesses poured glasses of mamajuana (or Coca-Cola, for those of us who didn’t drink) and turned up the tunes. They gave lessons on popular Dominican dance styles called dembow and reggaeton. Even Andrew and I got in on the fun for a bit! Spoiler warning: We were terrible. Our hips just don’t move like that 😉
Immediately after one of the dance routines, still looking as dorky as ever 😉
After the dancing wound down, the majority of people on the boat took a nap, exhausted from a day in the sun and a little too much mamajuana. Andy and I took the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful view and the peace and quiet. We also had a few more photos taken by the tour photographer.
Y’all, this excursion was the highlight of our dream vacation. I will say it again and again: if Andrew and I don’t end up back in Kentucky after he retires from the Army, you will find us sitting on a Caribbean beach.
