AVOID THIS PLACE LIKE COVID-19.
Wow, where to begin. We planned this trip through our travel agent and it went smooth at first. We were asked to send out hotel name and room number to the tour company so they could give us a pickup time at our resort. Here’s where things went south QUICKLY. The tour company told us they would pick us up at 8:50 that morning and to be ready. I stood waiting at the lobby in my hotel until 9:00am. Nobody ever came to get us so we called the company. Company then explained that they messed up and that they told me the wrong pickup time and we would have to reschedule or get a refund. The person on the phone admitted to screwing up and never once apologized or never once gave us anything to remedy the situation at hand. AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS.

Terrible- 2.5 hours of mediocre surrounded by 8 hours of suffering
Oct 2021 • Family
Terrible- 30 minutes swimming at theNatural Swimming Pool sandbar and two hours free time at Saona beach. We were gone from hotel 11 hours door to door. Poorly organized ( basic things missing like having a leader at both front & rear of group to help stragglers), poorly supplied - we went hours without access to water or bathrooms. Catamaran substandard- very uncomfortable. And power boat ride back was a bonecrusher- bench type metal seats. The leader was clueless as to ridership- treated us as if we were spring break college kids who wanted boozed up and ear splitting music.
Avoid this trip like the plague. Not only was it a waste of most of a day, most of us were exhausted the next due to rough conditions

Do not book this trip
Sep 2021 • Friends
Disaster tour, wouldn't recommend this to anyone. I will give you just the facts of our day. We were picked up from our hotel at 7:30 in the morning the bus kept leaking disgusting dirty water on us in our seats. We finally got to the catamaran boat and they crammed us all in with no covid regulation being adhered to or enforced. We got to the island at 1, there was seaweed everywhere after we were told there would not be. (One of the reasons for going was, our hotel on Atlantic side was covered in more seaweed than I could imagine). Immediately put our stuff down had to get on a long line for food. Had an hour and 15 minutes after that to relax and enjoy the water before we left and they ran out of beer. So not 3 hours, 2 hours. The natural swimming hole is just another part of the Caribbean where you can stand shoulder height in the water and there MIGHT be large starfish. It's not a swimming hole or a Cenote, it's the same Beach. And then lucky us after being crammed in what is supposed to be a speed boat ride home, again covid safety not being enforced, one of our engines breaks down. They did not ask passing boats for help, they did not call for a boat back and they did not give us any information as to what was happening but that we would be 30 minutes late. Try 2 hours. We did not get back to our hotel till 8. worst trip ever. no apologies,constantly hounded to have pictures taken so they could charge you a ridiculous amount to get your digital photos. I would not recommend this to anyone. There are definitely better tours out there, don't put yourself in this situation if you don't have to. This is our sixth trip to the Dominican Republic and the reason why we never leave the resort

DO NOT BUY. 6-8 HOURS OF BUS / TRANSPORTATION. ABHORRENT FOOD AND DRINKS.
Sep 2021
The day started by poor communication and requiring a 6:30 pickup time. They clarified at 6:45 that it was actually a 7:00 pickup time so we waited in the lobby of the hotel for 45 minutes. We were the first ones on the bus at Macao beach. The bus proceeded to pickup passengers from ~10 different resorts. Keep in mind that we were picked up so early that we were not able to eat anything at our resort. There was a quick stop at a location where they force everyone off the bus to sell overpriced souvenirs and food. We had to purchase food since we were exceedingly hungry at this point. We arrived in the boat port location at 10:00 and then waited another 30 to 45 minutes before getting on a speed boat at ~10:45. When we finally reach the natural pool, you find out that the open bar is a warm bottle of coke and warm rum being passed around. Once you get to the island, there is more waiting and then you finally have lunch and the food is completely unacceptable. There is a decent variety but the quality is extremely bad / not edible. We stayed on the island for ~2.5 hours not the advertised 3 hour duration and half the time was devoted to organizing / moving the groups of people around. The return route was on the catamaran which was very enjoyable, but the open bar is also just a warm bottle of coke and warm rum. Our boat actually ran out of water for people to drink about halfway through the route. We got back to the boat port at 4:30 and it took 30 minutes to get all the people back on the bus and then we were the last stop and arrived at 7:00 to our hotel. I want to say that the people associated with the tour, the driver, the boat personnel were all very good and I have no complaints about them. However, the experience as a whole is falsely advertised and very poorly executed and communicated. I will never use this touring organization again and a simple refund doesn’t even come close to apologizing or gaining our favor again. I feel like they took 6-8 hours out of each of our vacation (12-16 hours total) which is priceless.

Total Scam. Don't fall for it.
Just a big scam. Stay Away. Don't book online!

This "company " canceled our family private trip twice in a week for different reasons, none of them valid, but what could we do (even canceled the 2nd time at 11 pm the day before saying an engine wasn'tworking). We mentioned this to one of the managers at our (5-star) resort, and they said the company had a bad reputation of doing so if they could book a different trip for more they'd cancel on you right away. He helped us book a new trip, for over $200 less than what we paid Caribbean Route when I booked online. Caribbean Route, 2+ weeks later, has not refunded our $700 fee, despite stating 3 times they would do so. Still fighting them through Expedia, where I made the booking, and with my credit card, but please, a word to the wise, don't fall for this scam. Tons of comments here mentioning the same, so you've been warned, caveat emptor.

Don’t use Caribbean route, worst experience ever.
Don’t use Caribbean tours
I rarely write bad reviews cause i know things happens you know..but I had to, For all what they did I had to..
not only did they have a horrible communication.. they didn’t show up to pick me up, they took forever to respond to my email/message/phone calls.. but also they refused to issue any refund and tries to take my money without providing me with any service.. i am fighting this with my credit card company and I will make sure no other person fall for their trap.. they use the fact that you are there for a couple of days for vacation. and you will be leaving so u wont be there to fight them over the charge.. you can get this tour way cheaper at your hotel with better service and guess what they show up and they charge you for their service not for nothing you won’t get.. Don’t use Caribbean route for your own peace of mind.. if you don’t believe me.. see how many people had that same exact experience like me in the comments.. I also have all emails and text messages between me and Caribbean route if you need more proof and I will gladly pot them here .. Ethics is the basics of any business and with no ethics you shouldn’t be in business .

Open Bar Means they will open a 2 liter of Coke
It was advertised as an open bar excursion. After you book it then they tell you that they cannot serve alcohol. However when we arrived on the island they were more than happy to sell us $10 piña colada’s. Also The on way the bus stopped at a little market so we could buy alcohol. You could buy a Styrofoam cooler with a 12 pack in it for 50 bucks.
On the catamaran on the way back, The deck hands were begging for five dollar tips for each person in our party, they did it to all the guests on the boat. We tipped a lot less than we normally would have just because of the fact did they put us on the spot this was very uncomfortable.

Awesome time of our life
First big shoutout to my brother from another mother Chavl . He’s such a knowledgeable man and more than just a tour guide . Chavl really gave us the DR culture all in one boat ride . Do not hesitate to book this excursion !!!!!! Saona Island is just amazing the water is so clear and the people are so refreshing . Make sure before you come on this boat you fresh up your dance skills or take some classes because they like to party ! My girlfriend and I really enjoyed this excursion . This was a great way to start her birthday celebration .
