What You Can Expect

Punta Cana Combo Tour: Off-Road Buggy and Catamaran with Lunch

Punta Cana Combo Tour: Off-Road Buggy and Catamaran

Meet your professional guide upon hotel pickup in Punta Cana and transfer to the Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park—the most beautiful ecological reserve in the Caribbean. After a safety briefing upon arrival, hop aboard a modern, two-person off-road Club Car to begin your 4x4 eco-adventure!

Follow your guide along a network of nature trails within the private, 1,500-acre (600-hectare) ecological reserve. You’ll find the small-wheel, zero-emissions electric vehicle a pleasure to drive (or ride, if you opt to be a passenger). Stop at the unspoiled beach of Playa Blanca to swim in the crystal-clear water of this tropical paradise or play on a white-sand beach shaded by coconut palms.

Then, follow interpretive trails back through the reserve and dip into the crystal-clear water of one of 12 freshwater lagoons. Learn about the 80 species of birds and other fauna, including iguanas, that make these protected coastal and inland habitats their home.

After relaxing in this majestic natural setting, it’s time to board the boat, Caribbean Sea, for a catamaran ride. You’ll stop for a delicious lunch at a seaside restaurant along the way and have time to enjoy the beautiful beach or swim in another lagoon afterward. Re-board the catamaran for a smooth ride over this amazing seascape, including a final stop at a natural pool where you can take a refreshing dip in the waist-high waters of the Caribbean.

Your full-day adventure ends with a final toast at the Punta Cana Marina and drop-off at your hotel.

Great!

PROS: Lots of fun, knowledgeable multilingual guides, open bar
CONS: Tourist trap once you're there, not clearly organized, open bar

Had a great time on this trip. The bus picked us up at the scheduled time exactly, the staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and fluent in at least four different languages. The cart are not "electric zero-emission" like the description here says, they are big, beefy, gas-sucking hogs. But they are FUN! Put the hammer down and hold on! They're more fun the faster you go, and they handle the bumps better at speed, too.

The lagoon was nice and refreshing after that initial chill, it does get a little crowded if everyone jumps in at once. The hike to get there takes less than 10 minutes over a fairly easy trail - it's wide and not too difficult, but it does have a number of roots and rocks to deal with.

So things to know about for the buggy tour - it's a ripoff for anything once you're inside there, but if you're prepared beforehand it shouldn't be an issue. They sell you bandannas for $5 to cover your face, and if you didn't bring your own, you can either cheerfully pay them or spend the boat ride picking bugs and grit out of your teeth. Forgot insect repellent? That's another $10 - you get the idea.

After the buggies, it's a five minute bus ride to the marina, where you load up on the boat and head out to a semi-private resort beach for lunch. Lunch was fantastic - multiple courses served fresh from the resort restaurant. This was a gourmet meal, not a cheap box lunch! It's open bar and game on the rest of the cruise. The boat guides are friendly, funny, and everyone is dancing and begging for more by the end of the trip!

Overall, it's a fun day without trying to pack too much in. Be prepared with a bandanna, insect repellent, sunscreen, and maybe some snacks, and you'll be all set. The only thing that could be a little better is some better organization, but overall a great experience.
