Spend a day of island exploring on the 3rd (Wed) at Saona Island. And it doesn't end there: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, stroll through Macao Beach, make a trip to Jesus Maestro Parish, and kick back and relax at Playa La Vacama.

Nassau, Bahamas to Punta Cana is an approximately 4.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight, shuttle, and taxi. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Nassau to Punta Cana. In June, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) to allow time to take a shuttle to Bayahibe.
