Saona - Mano Juan - Catralinita excursions with Corfal Point Diving

The Island Saona was baptized "Saona" by Christopher Columbus, who discovered it in may 1494 on his way to the Americas. The name was meant to honor the commune of Savona, where Columbus lived at the time. Columbus named Michele da Cuneo, his friend and a savonese himself, first governor of the island. Saona Island and the modern city Savona, in Italy, still have twinning relationships; the small power plant in Saona Island is a gift of Savona. Mano Juan is the only inhabitate village at Saona Island.
Mano Juan is a small picturesque village on Isla Saona’s southern shore.
The people of Mano Juan are only about 300 residents who use to sustain itself fishing, farming and selling souvenir to the tourists on the beach. Gift shops have the peculiarity that all products are natural and organic.
You will see how the people live with very limited resources and you will learn about their school, their history, their way of life.
The only electricity they have is what a few solar panels can provide.
Pastel homes line the beach so take your camera this is the photo you’ve been waiting for!
Beautiful white sand beaches and crystal blue-green waters surrounded by thousands of coconut palms trees. It is a paradise to visit.
