What You Can Expect

Puerto Plata Dune Buggy Adventure

Drive a dune buggy in Puerto Plata!

After pickup from your Puerto Plata hotel, your informative guide will offer safety instructions for riding your dune buggy. Then, hop in your one- or two-person dune buggy (depending on which option you select) and prepare for your Dominican expedition through the picturesque countryside!

From Puerto Plata, head into the gorgeous rural surroundings of the coastal city. Follow your guide past sugar cane fields and over five rivers as you drive your low-to-the-ground buggy on a trail. Along the way, spot the replica of Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer statue atop the summit of Pico Isabel de Torres, which hovers almost 2,625 feet (800 meters) above sea level.

Expect the usual off-road terrain on your adventure, including some bumps and dips with water or dirt. When you reach the beach, cool off – and clean off – with a dip into a flowing river or the warm waters of the Caribbean. Drive along the white sand for breathtaking views of the beach and sea, with a break to enjoy complimentary soft drinks, before heading back to Puerto Plata with return transport to your hotel.

AMAZING! Best day of our whole trip! Just be prepared to get VERY muddy!!!! Such a great way to see the island and how the people live! If your into motorsports this is a must do!!!!

3 star rating: Worth doing April 2015

I was a little disappointed with this tour, the dune buggys were very old and we just drove around for about 2 hours. I highly recommend you bring something for your face as the dust is pretty bad. We do a lot of these types of tours, and this one was expensive and a little disappointing for the money spent.
