Things To Do, Tours & Activities

Kick Up Dust
Zip through the beautiful countryside in a manual transmission dune buggy! Departing from Punta Cana, you’ll travel past colorful houses and across the breathtaking landscape of banana plantations and farmland.

The adventure starts as you head out into the Dominican countryside. After a pit stop for a real Dominican coffee, you’ll drive to an old limestone mine. Next, cruise over farmland and see the seasonal fruits and vegetables before stopping to try one of the island’s best coconuts!

Driving on a paved road to the villages of La Caiba and Macao, you’ll make a stop at a local colmado (grocery store). Enjoy snacks and drinks at the colmado then head over to Macao Beach, one of the last natural beaches in the Dominican Republic. Drive along the white sand and enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean. If time, we’ll have a quick dip before returning to Punta Cana.

Ready to Drive the Dune Buggy!

Hop in a Speedboat
Experience an aquatic adventure as you drive your own speedboat on the turquoise sea of the Caribbean on a James Bond style ride!

Fly across the waves as you drive your own mini two-seater speedboat – play ‘follow the leader’ along the beaches of Bavaro, with your journey ending at a snorkeling platform. Dive into the clear waters here to see underwater coral, fish and sea life of all colors. The snorkeling conditions are excellent and all equipment is included and expert instruction is available for those who need it. Once back on the platform, soft drinks are provided to refresh you for the drive back to the beach.

The speedboat ride is supervised by professional guides at all times to ensure your safety and comfort, allowing you to relax and enjoy the thrill ride of your life!

Meet the Locals
Leave your Punta Cana hotel far behind you as you head into the amazing Dominican countryside with a professional local guide. Learn about the culture and history of the area and visit a typical country house before continuing on and tasting the local specialties at a nearby cafe.

Mingle with the locals at a local school before continuing our journey, past sugar plantations, to a cigar museum. After a scenic ride through the countryside you will arrive at a ‘finca’ where you will be able to see and sample local produce such as vanilla, coffee, cacao and sweet lemon. After a true Dominican lunch consisting of many typical dishes, you have the option to take a fresh dip in the river, go horseback riding or just take a rest in one of the hamacas (hammocks).

On your return, you will visit a local colmados (store) where you’ll have the opportunity to shop for native products like coffee and rum.
