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.

This was a wonderful tour! Jose' was super and very informative. We watched cigar making at one place, rode the horses up to the delicious lunch, then ziplined. Jose' showed us cacao seed and how to make chocolate. We were offered Mamajuana - it's great! Special props to Tomas and Martinez, our horses, too.
On the way back to hotel, watched jewelry making and shopped. Best fun ever!

My wife and I did this trip during the slower months and we were actually the only 2 people on the tour. We were slightly nervous at first since this was our first visit out of the country and off the resort. Jose quickly put any worries to rest. Jose was an amazing guide and ensured that we were happy throughout the day. Everyone we came in contact with was great! From the people to the lunch, there was nothing we'd change about this tour. Highly recommended.

One of my most amazing excursion experiences ever. We took the option of the Cattle Drive too and we were glad we did. We were picked up by Kathy on time and driven to the ranch in a 4x4. It was great that it is so local to most of the resorts in the Punta Cana/Bavaro area. Journey time was about 20 minutes. Kathy told us a lot about local life on the way. Upon arriving at the ranch we met the days group and were given a tour of the cigar factory shop and even got to roll our own flavoured cigar to keep too. The tour guides were a great laugh!

We were assigned our horses for the day and set out ridding across the Dominican countryside. It was indescribably good! We trekked to another ranch where we zip-lined across rivers and through tree tops. It was another great feature of the day! We then enjoyed a lovely home cooked, plentiful Dominican lunch cooked by the guide Joses wife. Later a handful of us took the horses out guided a herd of cattle from a field through a river and into another paddock to graze. You work as a team to herd them up, its fairly easy. The cattle are slow, but crafty! The guides really look after you. It was exciting, felt safe and facilities and horses were of a top standard and appeared in excellent health. I would recommend this tour in a heartbeat to anyone who enjoys something adventurous and different to the norm. When a definite when not if I go back to the Dominican Republic I will more than likely do this trip again, it was out of this world! This excursion was part of my 5th holiday to the country during the last 5 years. The booking and communications regarding collection from our resort were all great too and went perfectly to plan.

This was a great excursion. The guides on the excursion were very friendly and helpful. It was most definitely the best food we ate on our trip! Jose was a great guide. The horses were well mannered and easy to ride. The cattle drive was a fun little side trip at the end. Cigars at the factory are very tasty and reasonably priced.

What a fun experience! A friend recommended the trip to us and I was so impressed by how organized this trip was. We did SO MUCH in just one day. Our tour guide Jose was so funny and knowledgeable. This was a perfect trip, and at such an affordable rate. Me and our boyfriend enjoyed ourselves from the Cigar Factory to zip lining. And lunch was yummy too. I highly recommend this trip for those looking to get a great bang for your buck!
