Punta Cana Evening Buggy Tour with Dominican Dinner
Activities

Punta Cana Evening Buggy Tour with Dominican Dinner

This experience has adventure stamped all over it. Off-road buggy or safari truck rides, traditional Taino ceremonies and swimming in underground pools make for an adrenaline-pumping evening from Punta Cana. Juan, one of our local guides, says ‘Caves and cenotes played an important role in the indigenous Taino culture. Despite looking so tempting with their cool aquamarine water, the Taino people never swam in the cenotes or used the water because of their belief that they were a gateway to the underworld.' Plus, you'll enjoy a Dominican dinner and an open bar followed by live music and dancing around a bonfire.To kick off your all-action evening, you'll power through the Dominican countryside, zoom along dirt tracks and watch as the landscape transforms from day to night. Guided by torchlight, you'll continue your journey to take a swim in a natural cave pool, known as a cenote, with atmospheric lighting. And if you choose the safari truck option, you'll also get to visit the eerie depths of Yara Cave.With flaming torches lighting the way, you'll make your way back to base for a well-earned drink and a tasty dinner of local cuisine. The restaurant staff pride themselves on creating classic Dominican dishes, freshly prepared with seasonal produce from the island. Rounding off the evening is a traditional Taino dance show and the chance to join in with a boogie around the bonfire or enjoy the open bar under the stars.

Anamuya Mountains Small Group Walking Tour

Take a walk on the wild side with a tour of the Dominican Republic's rugged Anamuya Mountains. See a snapshot of rural life as shown to you by an in-the-know local. Alex, one of our expert guides, says, ‘I'm a native and have been guiding tours here for more than 10 years. You'll learn about local history, plants and crops, and get to try home-grown coffee and fruit, too.'Fun facts, exotic wildlife and the chance to take a river swim – this tour has it all. After pick-up from your hotel, we'll head deep into the Dominican outback. And because we'll visit the less-travelled parts of the country, it helps support areas that don't usually benefit from tourism. What's more, you'll be part of a small group of just 16 guests, minimising our carbon footprint. ‘It's a great way to get in touch with nature and give back to the rural community,' says Alex.

You'll meet the locals and taste locally grown seasonal products – from farm to fork, it doesn't get much fresher. Be sure to keep an eye out for rare plants, birds and wildlife, too. Being part of this experience is a boost to wildlife conservation efforts in the region. Finally, we'll head to the River Anamuya, where you can cool off with a well-earned swim and a thirst-quenching coconut water.

Activities

Terracross Tour of the Countryside from Punta Cana

There are few better ways to see the unspoilt Dominican countryside than a Terracross safari. You'll drive through winding rural dirt tracks through plantations all the way to the famous Domitai Cave Park and a replica Taino village. Luis, one of our local guides, says, ‘We are the world's largest producer of organic, fair trade cocoa. Around half of our cocoa is made into the finest chocolate you can buy. So, trying traditional cocoa products in a Dominican farm is a real treat, even if you don't have a sweet tooth.'Kick off with some mud-splattered, high-octane fun as you ride cross-country to a cenote cave for a swim in the Domitai Cave Park. These sinkholes with clear, fresh water are perfect for a cooling dip. As it's a private venue, there are fewer crowds and vendors than at other cenotes. You'll also get to savour some local specialities such as empanadas and pineapple wine. Next, drop by a recreated Taino village – they were the aborigines who lived on the island before Columbus arrived – where you'll observe a folkloric show.Plus, you'll learn all about the production of local crops which are so critical to the local economy – coconut oil, sugarcane, coffee and chocolate as well as the unique Dominican chocolate tea. During your visit you'll have the chance to try some of these local products, along with the national tipple, mamajuana. Overall, a great close-up view of the Dominican countryside and local culture – on a thrilling Terracross safari.

You'll see, smell and taste a whole new side to our country.'We kick off early, with a trip to Higuey to see the famous Altagracia Basilica – a pilgrimage site because of its miraculous image of Our Lady.

You'll also visit a sugarcane plantation for a rum tasting session and watch a cigar-rolling demonstration with a master of his craft.After such a busy morning, you'll be ready for your lunch.

Introducing Punta Cana

The Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana is famed for its beautiful white-sand beaches and gin-clear waters. And while a lot of activities centre on the coastline, there’s a wealth of cultural treasures and attractions to discover. Take a day away from the beach to visit Santo Domingo, the history-steeped capital, get involved in adrenaline-pumping activities at one of Punta Cana’s adventure parks, or explore the lagoons, caves and mangroves of the Los Haitises National Park. There are so many things to do in Punta Cana, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Top six things to do in Punta Cana

1. Kick back on Punta Cana’s beaches

Bavaro Beach is considered one of the top beaches in the world and is the most famous in Punta Cana. Bask in the sun, go swimming, enjoy some watersports or relax in the shade of the palm trees with a drink in hand. Macao Beach is another gem. It gets a lot of waves and can be quite windy, making it ideal for surfers. Meanwhile, Juanillo beach – with its calm and shallow waters – is perfect for families.

2. Visit Santo Domingo

A visit to the vibrant capital of the Dominican Republic is a popular daytrip from Punta Cana. Santo Domingo was the first European-built city in the Americas, so it’s no wonder that the historic old town – called the Colonial Zone – is an absolute must-see. Spanish Empire-era buildings, many of which house museums, restaurants and shops, line the streets of this UNESCO-protected zone. Go on a guided tour to see the first cathedral of the Americas, the Alcazar de Colon, the Altar of the Nation and much more. On top of the many historical landmarks, the Colonial Zone is also renowned for its thriving food scene and exciting nightlife.

3. Try your hand at some watersports

The crystal-clear waters flanking Punta Cana allow for a full range of watersports. Thanks to the often-perfect wind conditions, kitesurfing, windsurfing and surfing are all popular activities. But the best way to explore the glorious seascape is by taking a catamaran tour. With a diverse and rich marine life, many boat trips offer snorkelling stops. Swim alongside stingrays, nurse sharks and other tropical fish as you explore the longest coral reef in the Dominican Republic. And if you visit between mid-January and late March, you might be lucky enough to see some whales.

4. Head to Saona Island

Located just off the coast of Punta Cana, Saona Island makes for a perfect daytrip. Boasting untouched beaches, turquoise waters and swaying palm trees, Saona is paradise personified. The whole island is a nature reserve and lies within the Cotubanama National Park. Swim in one of the largest natural pools in the world, snorkel in waters full of marine life, try some of the local food at a restaurant or simply top up your tan on one of the island’s amazing beaches.

5. Explore Los Haitises National Park

Los Haitises National Park is a magnet for eco-adventurers. Dotted with islands, rolling hills, caves, dense forests and endless mangroves, an excursion to Los Haitises ticks all the boxes for nature lovers. You can reach the national park by land or water. Boat trips, guided walking tours, kayaking and coach trips are just some of the many ways to explore this beautiful part of the Dominican Republic. You’ll need to book your trip to the Los Haitises National Park well in advance, as the number of visitors allowed in is limited.

6. Get your adrenaline pumping with some adventure activities

Punta Cana is an adventure-seekers’ playground. Visit the vast Scape Park, a natural theme park, which includes pools, caves, ziplines and a beach club. It’s home to the impressive Hoyo Azul cenote – you can swim in the crystal-clear waters of this sinkhole. The Iguabonita Cave, with its network of tunnels and caverns, is another of the park’s highlights. Bavaro Adventure Park, also set in Punta Cana, offers an exciting day out with buggy tours, ziplines, horse-riding, zorbing and paintballing activities, to name but a few.
