After hotel pickup in Punta Cana, hop into your very own convertible Mini Cooper and follow your guide in a fleet of stylish, classic cars. Each car can carry a maximum of three passengers, so you can choose whether to get behind the wheel or just relax for the ride. With the top down, you’ll enjoy the ocean breeze as you tour the highlights en route.
Drive to La Romana on the southeast coast of the Dominican Republic and pass by Casa de Campo, a tropical seaside resort. This prestigious community, built on the site of a former sugar mill, boasts 1,700 private villas against a backdrop of plazas and terraces. Follow your guide on foot along cobblestone walkways atop the picturesque cliffs, where you’ll find Altos de Chavón, a 16th-century replica of a medieval Mediterranean village.
Explore the enchanting buildings of this architectural wonder perched above the Chavón River, including hand-cut stone pathways and detailed ironwork handcrafted by Dominican artisans. Peek into the numerous boutiques and art galleries on your way to the Regional Museum of Archaeology, located behind the Church of St Stanislaus. This archeological museum, dedicated to the study of the island's pre-Columbian heritage, is a must-see. You’ll find more than 3,000 artifacts that document the Taino people—the region’s original inhabitants—on display.
After a delicious buffet lunch at Boca de Yuma, a restaurant that overlooks the Caribbean Ocean, your guide will take you to a local cigar factory, La Flor Dominicano. You’ll have the opportunity to learn about how Dominican cigars are manufactured before driving back to Punta Cana Village. Here, enjoy some time browsing the shops at one of the island’s best shopping locales before your guide drops you off at your hotel.
