Cruise schedule for Isla Catalina Dominican Republic
Watch a destination video.
Discovered by Christopher Columbus, Isla Catalina has remained uninhabited to this day. Only 9.6 square km, it is a preservation of the main ecosystems which include sand dunes, mangroves, and reefs, just to name a few.
Catalina is perfect for a day of swimming, hiking and exploring. The entire island is formed out of coral stone and has three overlapping plateaus. The highest elevation is 60 feet above sea level! In fact, there is absolutely no fresh water on the island. There is only one water source the animals drink from and even has traces of salt in it.
Take advantage of this island that remains untainted by the fast-paced society that so many are all too accustomed to. Amaze yourself while marveling at the exotic birds and wild monkeys
