What You Can Expect

Punta Cana River Horseback Riding and Zipline Tour

Punta Cana River Horseback Riding Tour

After hotel pickup in Punta Cana, saddle up with a horse to suit your skill level—from beginner to advanced rider. Then follow your professional guide on a scenic horseback ride along the Anamuya River, whose natural surroundings provide plenty of photo ops. You’ll have the opportunity to pick up speed if you desire, or just walk or trot; your guide will customize the tour to each rider’s comfort and level of experience.

The river travels up a mountain path as it winds its way through a tiny village to a beautiful oasis at a cigar plantation. Stop and grab a cold drink from the bar or sample one of the freshly made cigars rolled right in front of you (own expense). Enjoy a chance to mingle with the locals or just take in the peace and quiet before continuing on horseback to the ranch. If you’ve selected an optional upgrade, practice your herding skills on a cattle drive. (See description below for details.)

The fun doesn’t end as you disembark from your horse! Get your adrenaline pumping while you soar back across the river on a safe and fun, double-cable zipline. View the breathtaking landscape from a different perspective as professional guides instruct and assist you through every part of your zipline adventure. You can go as many times as you’d like or descend to level ground to relax.

After you’ve worked up an appetite, enjoy an amazing Dominican feast prepared with local recipes, complete with fresh coffee from the ranch. Give your lunch a chance to settle as you work on your tan by the pool or lounge in one of the hammocks. Before return transport to your hotel, take a tour of the ranch and discover the many varieties of plants found here, including cocoa, coffee and vanilla. You’ll observe how cocoa is processed and, of course, enjoy plenty of samples!

Optional Upgrade: Horseback ride with a cattle drive
An extension of your ride on the Anamuya River, the cattle drive provides you with the opportunity to help herd cattle or horses the old-fashioned way: on horseback. Practice your cowboy or cowgirl skills as you wrangle the herd along this scenic area. No riding experience is required; your guide shows you everything you need to know for this rare and thrilling experience.

A lot of fun. Got to see the process for making cigars, coffee, and cocoa. Even had the opportunity to purchase some to bring home with us. The lunch was pretty good and the zip line was a lot of fun. Really enjoyed riding the horses, and I recommend the cattle drive option. It was worth the extra money if you even have just a little interest. We brought schools supplies that would later be given to local students. They had us leave our email so they could send us a picture of the students with the school supplies we donated. Others on our trip also brought candy to give to the local children. The locals and the tour guides were very gracious and friendly.

This was a wonderful tour. Jose was the greatest tour guide. Horseback riding was the best I've ever gotten to do. Loved riding in the river and getting to run the horse! Ziplining wasn't anything spectacular but because my 12 year old was a bit scared to do it, it was fine. It was fun having our little "dance" after all the activities.Jose's 7 year old son was there too, and asked my daughter to dance. She's kind of shy but he managed to get her to her feet. Jose goes above and beyond to make his guests feel special. We all felt like we knew each other by the end of the trip. I even added some of them to my facebook page so we can keep in touch.
