My husband and I are a young couple, but we love to hike so we decided to book this day trip. At first based on the name we didn't expect this trip to be so amazingly adventurous! our tour guides was Gary and Hendrickson, they were absolutely fabulous!! They ensured everyone was safe and they guided the hike with such enthusiasm. they loved it and we loved it. It is quite a long ride to the ranch but you get a very good idea and scene of how some of the Dominican people live. This day trip is very adventurous but they will provide you with gear. Bring mosquito repellant for sure. This trip was well worth the buck! We will definitely come back again!
This tour is for the relatively fit. There is 45 minutes of hiking through rocky/trail terrain which is highly wooded. The horse back riding portion at the beginning and end was great. We repelled into a cave which was safe to do. The tour guides were fun, knowledgeable and funny. This is a 38 million year old cave which is more recently discovered. I was worried about the bug/spider situation in the cave, but it wasn't an issue. The bugs are relentless on the trail, so bring big spray. The cave and bats are really cool. A ham sandwich snack was offered when we got there. After the tour, the lunch was great: red beans and rice, jerk chicken, pork, coleslaw salad, fruit, potatoes, etc. Water, pop, and beer are also offered. Tip: wear a swim suit/board shorts. They give you a "prison-like" jump suit to wear for the tour along with rubber boots. They say bring extra socks. This is because the rubber boots need to be drained out several times do to the water. When done with the tour, you can wear dry socks for your shoes back home. Flip flops to change out of would also work. Bring a change of clothes (shorts/shirt) to wear over your bathing suit afterwards would also be helpful. Lockers and changing rooms are offered at the location. This was my favorite tour in Punta Cana and highly recommended. Tip: Water cameras only! They will video tape the tour for purchase of $40 U.S. currency.
AMAZING! If you love adventure this is the trip. Beautiful scenic drive through the dominican republic, horse back riding, hiking, repelling into a cave, cave exploration and yes you will get wet in the cave. Some of the best home cooked dominican food awaits you at the end of your adventure.
I highly recommend this excursion to anyone. Everyone associated with assisting us was incredibly helpful. the driver, amazing guid and super funny. Quick Tips: Bring cash, they film everything and you can buy a dvd copy, bring a waterproof camera and lastly bring enough to tip your guides and driver since they are extremely helpful and make the experience happen.
This was the most amazing adventure ever. Be prepared though it is not for the weak. It was a three hour drive to the ranch. We rode horseS up and down hills, hiked up and down hills and the crawled around on our stomachs in the caves. If you are adventorous, this tour is for you.
Wow! This was AMAZING! The bus drive to the ranch was a bit sketchy (3 hour drive in and the driver didn’t say a word) but we got the opportunity to see many different walks of life and life styles. Once you get to the location you pass two gates to get onto the ranch and the driver opens them manually and hops back in the small bus. Once you’re there you’ll never forget your trip!! This was a dream and quite the adventure. Horse ride through streams, hike up the mountain (with full gear on), exploring the caves, diving under water in the caves and beers waiting for us at the end of the cave. The lunch they provide at the end of the adventure was the BEST meal I ate while in Dominican. Do IT! You won’t regret it. It is a life experience. Enjoy Oh, and bring bug repellant.
This trip was the best thing about our trip to the Dominican Republic! First you start out with a horse back ride, then hike through the hills, then repel down into a cave where you hike some more, then after you're out of the cave the horses are waiting for you to take you back to the ranch. Carlos, the guide, was absolutely incredible! Very knowledgeable and funny! This trip is not for the faint of heart! One thing to note... remember a water proof camera. When you're in the cave, you dive under water so you can't bring anything that can't get wet!! However, there is a videographer who tapes the entire thing and sells the DVDs for $40. We bought one and have watched it 3 times already... TOTALLY worth it!! Great memories... couldn't have asked for a better excursion!
This was a fun-filled day of activities. We did horseback riding, hiking in the forest, repelled down the entrance of the cave, and explored the cave itself. Equipment was provided free of charge. The experienced staff was multilingual and attentive to every detail. The meals were simply delicious.
My wife and I took this trip in August 2012, and it was great. The guides kept the trip memorable and were funny and intelligent about their country, the jungle, and the cave. The trip there took a while from Punta Cana, but you get to really see the country. The horses were a lot of fun to ride and it was awe inspiring to be in the cave and really explore it. You get to go through the cave waters and take tons of pictures. Make sure you bring a waterproof camera because the pictures are worth it.
It is approximately just a little over three hours by bus from Hotel zone, with one break on the way. After arrival to the field, they served a late breakfast. Then, I changed into the overalls that were provided. Horseback riding experience lasted approximately one hour. This was very fun. Horses take to you well. After the horse ride, we walked for 45 minutes. It is slightly hot here, but not too bad. We ended up at the cave. I have not experienced anything like it in the past. A swimsuit is needed, there is a place to jump into the water. I came back by horseback riding again. Then I had a late lunch. Almost everything you need is provided. Finally they made a DVD of the experience. This is fun too. I had a very fun experience.
THE MOST amazing experience of my life! This is one that should not EVER be missed Gadiele and Hendrix were amazing guides and even though I argued w him at first that I couldn't do it I felt safe and found out how FUN and EASY the repelling was. NOTE you can ONLY take a waterproof camera so don't miss out!
This was a great trip. We were able to partake on a great experience. The guides were local and very knowledgable. They made the trip so much more fun. The only disappointment was that the photograph did not show up, so we were not give the opportunity to have a cd / dvd of the experience.
This was a fun excursion because it offered several activities: horseback riding, hiking, spelunking. I'll begin by admitting that I am 61 years old and overweight although I have been working out and lifting weights. I was one of the two older participants of our group. Some caveats, however...footwear is an issue. They want you to wear rubber boots for all activities. Be sure to bring socks. I chose to wear my tennis shoes and would not have been able to make the hike without them as the climb is up mountainside with no real path and large, pointed boulders. Once inside the cave, the ground is VERY SLIPPERY with mud and sharp rocks. I fell twice ( I was the only one in the group to fall). The guides were helpful and tried to be careful. One other thing: the jumpsuit that I wore began to smell strongly of BODY ODOR shorthly into the hike. I was so embarrassed until I realized that the smell was embedded in the material from multitudes of past wearers. Just be aware of the possible dangers: my bruises are just now starting to fade a week later.
Fun adventure, took a little long to get to site but it was worth it. A lot of physical activity as we walked a long ways through the forest and undergound. It was worth it. The cave was amazing. Definitely a site to see.
The actual excursion was great, horse back ride through the jungle, really cool cave with rappelling etc... we didn't realize however that there was seven hours of bus riding! On top of that we were the only ones on the tour that were charged $40 extra because our hotel wasn't on their list.
