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
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
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.
