Punta Cana Zipline Canopy Adventure

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The zipline is a definite MUST and completely safe, however be prepared to do some hiking to get from one zipline to the next. It can be a bit of a workout. The ride to the zipline is about an hour and the last 20-30 min is climbing up the mountain so it’s VERY BUMPY. Make sure to wear the appropriate attire like sneakers and such and ladies please don’t wear a dress. A young lady in our group had to sit it out from lack of pants.

Punta Cana Reef Explorer: Power Snorkeling, Paddleboarding and Kayaking

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was one of the better tours on our trip because you get to relax while choosing from the different activities you want to do, when you want to do them, No schedule, no rush. We got to do everything as described from swimming with the stingrays (stingrays are de-barbed) to exploring the reef further out on a guided tour. And the massage was included as well, no extra cost. For those who can’t swim (like myself), everyone was required to wear a floatation bubble while in the water and for lunch there were some finger foods and blended drinks (no alcohol) so eat before you go. The staff was friendly and accommodating and if all the activities aren’t quite your thing there is always the option to relax on a lounge chair, soak in the scenery and read a book. Perfect for the family.

Punta Cana Segway Tour

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

We have done segway tours before and while I don’t blame the staff as they were all friendly and helpful, this would be the worst one. The tour went well over 2 hours, not including the commute time which would normally be a plus with segways; however we rode on dirt paths that kicked up a lot of dirt that got into our eyes. Our tour had been over-booked which slowed us up as well and the WALK, yes the walk to the lagoon was not worth it. The highlight of the tour was when we rode around a golf course and got to stop at a beach to swim, but to stay on schedule we only there for 15 min. Not to discourage from getting this tour because our experience had an isolated problem, but I still don’t think this is the location for segways.

My Review

I will start by saying that this is a GREAT tour for anyone who doesn’t mind the outdoors and wants to see and learn more about the beautiful country and culture of the DR. Just be prepared for a LONG day full of activities and a VERY bumpy ride. We got to see the school (kids were on summer break), a traditional home, the processing of coffee, etc., horseback riding and swimming at the beach, so don’t forget your swim suits as we did. However, in spite of all that we stayed on the bus where the bus driver kept the beer and rum flowing. This is also where you are going to find the BETTER DEALS on any items (coffee, vanilla, etc.) you may want to bring home. Just be sure to sample it before you buy. Our tour guide Alex was GREAT! Very informative and made sure that everyone was taken care of. While I highly recommend this tour I will say that we had HORRIBLE customer service upon scheduling our pick-up when we arrived thru Nexxus tours. They scheduled p/u at the wrong hotel, blamed the mix up on us and made us take a cab to catch the bus at the next p/u without compensation. If it wasn’t for Alex scheduling the pick-ups for the rest of our excursions (which is not in his job description) I’m not sure we would have been picked up for the rest of our tours.
